Keep Changing the World

As we are going through this adoption process our desires and wants have not seem so important any longer. As we are looking at these countries we see how very blessed we are. At times I feel sick about how selfish Americans really are always wanting the newest, biggest and best of everything while there are children starving to death or sleeping on the floor. We are really wanting our kids to see this and Olivia is already wanting to know when we can go on a missions trip to another country. When the kids are older I would love to take mission trips with them and their friends to other countries and to develop a servants heart for missions. So, this  adoption has already been blessing us by opening our eyes to how great the need is and hopefully it may open the eyes of others to reach out and help in someway.

"Christians today like to play it safe. We want to put ourselves in situations where we are safe. But if we truly desire to please God, we cannot live that way. We have to do things that cost us during our life on earth but will be more than worth in eternity." Francis Chan
