BENJAMIN and JUNE for the Williams family — PA

 photo fwbutton150.pngbenjamin2JuneClive and Frances are devout Christians who always wanted children. Married 25 years they have 3 children. It took 16 long years of infertility before the Lord blessed them with children & then 3 came along in 4 years! Benjamin 9 through IVF, Abigail 10, adopted from China when Ben was just 3 months old, & then a total surprise, Daniel, born with Down Syndrome & other health issues. Taking a few years to recover…….Clive & Frances realized they still had room in their hearts & homes, for 1 more…….but quickly the Lord showed that in fact they could take 2.

Clive had gone on a medical mission to Africa, another place blighted with parent less children, & came back wondering what else he could do. A quote that had always stuck in his mind – “I cant change the world………but I can change someones world, somewhere”. Driven by this & other factors Clive & Frances feel they have a responsibility to adopt children into their family, & use the resources God has given them – just the way God has modeled this in their lives with their adoptions into the family of God. They have identified 2 children, and have pre-approval & I800A, & have therefore started the process of “changing their lives forever”, by bringing them into their “forever families”. The financial burden of adopting one, let alone two special needs is pretty immense – would you please consider help in bringing these children home to their “forever families”?

TARAN + 1 for the Davenport family —

 photo fwbutton150.pngTaran-smilingThe Davenport’s are a family of four, soon to be six that live and serve in Central China (since 2012). Eric and Wendy have been married for 13 years and have two sons that are 11 & 12 years old. They have been touched by and passionate about orphan care since 2009. That’s when they spent time in an orphanage in Africa and then later that year welcomed their first foster baby into their home. They fostered 5 children over a two year period. Those years spent as foster parents were treasured times. They continue to reminisce about the little ones that God placed in their home and in their hearts. They didn’t initially feel led to adoption but, after moving to China and working with orphans in 2012, God did a mighty work in them and in their hearts to draw them towards the decision to provide a permanent home to children who need a home. For that they are so thankful! They feel so clearly directed by God to adopt that they want to obey Him. God desires for orphans of all nations to be loved, cared for, and adopted into families.

They are well into the long process of providing a ‘forever home’ to two boys in China. They have been matched with one child and are awaiting a match to the second. They will be traveling to get their first Chinese son in the spring of 2014. He was involved in an accident at the age of two that nearly took his life. He spent 6 months in the hospital and was abandoned during that time. He had multiple surgeries to help repair his injuries. He has recovered and can walk, talk, run and play. He is incontinent and wears a diaper. His incontinence prevents him from attending school.

The biggest challenge is not opening their hearts and home to adopted children (God has already taken care of that!), but it is finding the finances to make this happen. The estimated total cost for the adoptions is $40,000. That’s certainly money they don’t have. Actually it’s laughable from an earthly standpoint. But they know God is faithful and the call to adopt was so strong that He won’t leave them alone in this. He is a God who provides.

They are overwhelmed by the support they have been given through encouragement, funding, and prayers. They would like to ask for continued prayers as the process unfolds. Please also pray that their boys in China will be loved and cared for in their absence and daily feel His presence.

Caring for the fatherless is a mark and responsibility of His people and they believe God is moving through the Kingdom in a profound way to care for these precious ones. Perhaps your role is adoption or fostering. Maybe it’s being a prayer warrior for the least of these. Or maybe you are called to use the resources He has entrusted to you to help welcome children into Christian homes. If so, please consider helping them overcome this financial hurdle.

Please pray this entire process will glorify God and fulfill His purposes. Thank you for investing in the Kingdom through prayer and finances—it will be an investment with an eternal return!
