Jehovah Jireh – The Lord Will Provide

No, it’s not Friday…but we always love sharing some of our adoption stories with you–no matter the day of the week! Meet the Ruggards: The Ruggard family brought home little Tripp this past April from Ethiopia.  Lifesong was able to provide them with a matching grant and also assisted in their fundraising efforts.       What a huge blessing it was to partner with your ministry in our adoption journey.  Lifesong not only provided a $2,500 gift, but also the encouragement to send adoption support letters to our family and friends.  Without this encouragement we may never have allowed God to provide through our family and friends the funds needed to finance our adoption.  –Ruggards Thanks Ruggard family for sharing your heart and your journey with us.  It’s amazing for us to be able to see our God, the Ultimate Provider work in your lives!! “And my God will meet all … Continue reading

Inexpressible and Glorious Joy

Welcome to another Family Friday! We recently received a note from the Dinn family updating us on their family since the adoption of their daughter Joy from China this past May.  Lifesong had the pleasure of partnering with the Dinn’s in assisting with their fundraising efforts to bring home their little Joy.         We want to thank those who so freely and sacrificially gave so that we could bring our daughter home.  We know that it takes many people giving from their hearts and we are grateful.  Joy continues to do remarkably well and we are so blessed to have her in our family! –Clayton, Angie & family Thanks Dinn family for keeping us posted on your family…we love hearing (& seeing!) from you.  We pray that God continunes to fill your family with an inexpressible and glorious joy as you continue towards the goal of your faith…the salvation of … Continue reading

May God Lift Up

We were more than pleased this to get this precious card in the mail this week from the Michaelian family announcing their recently adopted son Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ from Rwanda.  You can’t help but smile back at this little guy!      Thanks Michaelian family for giving us the privilege to be big a small part of God’s big picture He is painting of your lives.  We pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Eph. 3:17-19).

Lives are Being Transformed

   Vanya from Lifesong for Orphans on Vimeo.       I remember the first time I saw Vanya because there was something different about him. Yes, he was the only black kid in the whole orphanage, but more than that, there was something about his eyes that intrigued me.   “Vanya is a smart kid.” Denis, our director, told us. “He was abandoned as a newborn. His parents were students at the university and he is very smart.”   I smiled at him and he smiled back. His outgoing personality was evident as he tried his hand at English.  I met a lot of kids at that summer camp in 2004, but Vanya is the one I remember.   -Marla Ringger, Orphan Advocate Click here to read more about Vanya.
