He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

For Mali

I write with a broken heart tonight.  One of the precious children on Reece's Rainbow who had a family coming for her passed away today.  That's two beautiful girls who have died alone in the past month.  This is so unacceptable!  Oh, how God's heart grieves at our indifference.  We pursue our earthly pleasures while across the world, his children die of neglect and abuse.  Church, rise up!  The Bible is clear that taking care of orphans is our responsibility.  It is not a calling for the few!  It is for all of us. 

Tonight I am featuring two little girls who will die if a family does not come for them. 

The first is Marsha.  She has hydrocephalus.  This is so treatable!  The doctors in her country now say they cannot put in a shunt without killing her.  She needs a family from a country with better medical care to come for her ASAP!  She will die a slow and painful death in her crib alone.

The second is Catherine.  She has holoprosencephaly which is life shortening condition.  She deserves a family!  There is no place for her in her birth country.

Please pray for these special angels to find a family!  Please, Lord, don't let them end up on the "in loving memory" page of Reece's Rainbow!
