A Day Brightener!


I gave my niece, Jenny, a few pictures of Patricia. She saw that her daughters, Corene (5 1/2) and Ava (3 1/2), had one taped up by each of their beds on the wall. When she asked Corene about it, Corene said, "Well, Ava and I were talking, and we thought if we taped them here, then we'd remember to pray for her since she doesn't have a mommy. Well, she does have Aunt Dawn for a mommy, but she doesn't know it yet."

Isn't that sweet? Even better, though, is that Patricia DOES know she has a home and a Mommy and Daddy. A few weeks ago, we had a great opportunity to meet the directors of Patricia's orphanage while they were visiting in Des Moines. Here is Pierre, (the kids call him Papi Pierre)the director and pastor at her orphanage, telling us how Patricia found out about us. (I am the one recording it.)
