SAVANNAH and NATALEE for the Carpenter family — PA
Brian and Stephanie are passionate advocates for orphans and especially those with special needs. They are blessed to live their ministry and hearts! They have previously adopted 4 daughters with special needs via international adoption. Sasha is nearly 16 and adopted from Russia. Ellianna is turning 8 years old and adopted from Taiwan. Angelina is 6 and 1/2 and adopted from Bulgaria and Avigayil is 6 and adopted from the Philippines.
Stephanie has worked for years in international adoption/advocating for children and helping families bring home their precious children. They have recently spoken at adoption/foster care conferences on International Special Needs Adoption. Brian and Stephanie also are the founders and directors of Ting Ministries – a non-profit orphan ministry working in the Philippines and also Ukraine. They are called by the LORD in His Word to care for the least of these – such verses as James 1:27; Proverbs 31: 8 – 9 and Psalm 68:6 are verses that not only encourage them as they minister to the orphans but these verses also speak clearly as to the LORD’S Mandate to care for the least of these.
Brian and Stephanie are now proceeding to bring home two more precious daughters and would be blessed and honored to have many partner with them in prayer as they work quickly to bring these two beautiful lives home where they belong! A song that speaks so loudly to Brian and Stephanie is called “The Prayer of the Children” by Kurt Bestor and the first line of the song says…
CAN YOU HEAR THE PRAYER OF THE CHILDREN?
Can you hear? What will you do? BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS!
