ZOE Children's Home? Why?

If you've never heard about how Dave and I found ourselves living overseas, volunteering at a children's home and doing 'life' in a completely different way to what we'd imagined... Read About- How It All Began.

I believe that we have a responsibility to reflect God's heart to the poor and less fortunate.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…defend the rights of the poor and needy." Prov. 31:8-9.
I continue to be amazed at how God is bringing forth His plan for our lives and how He is providing wonderful people to assist us in such practical ways.

Thank you so much to those who have been willing to support us with your finances, your prayers and your practical assistance.

We feel truly grateful and a little overwhelmed at how God orchestrates everything just as we need it.

I’m reminded of that High School Musical song “We’re all in this together..” LOL but seriously there are so many different aspects to making change happen and making a difference.  

Don’t ever think that just because you’re not on the “front line”, that what you’re contributing is not as important.  That is just not true.

By showing your support you’ve become passionate about making a difference in the lives of children. 
Is it easy? Not always. 
Is it time-consuming? Yes. 
Will you be put out of your comfort zone? Probably. 
Does it come at a cost? Yes. 
Is it worth it? Most definitely!
I read somewhere the other day that instead of being discouraged by the size of the task, we should be encouraged by the limitless power of God.  
Thank you for joining us in fighting for these children.

Well I feel grateful just for having met you guys, that impact on your selflessness is enough to have an impact on me alone. Thank you.

Oh Mandy, you're too kind. I don't think I'm selfless at all, but just trying to do a small bit to make a difference as are you with your fun runs, encouragement for mums through your blog etc. Andie :)
