"Mingi" Children of Ethiopia

Saw this video today on Audrey, Elle, and Alyssa's blog. It was another one of those videos that I was so tempted to skip. But I didn't. It's so hard to hear about more orphans, more need, more suffering- but it is even worse to turn our eyes away. So I encourage you to watch the following: I LOVE LOVE LOVE the song that goes with it. So PAUSE the music at the bottom of my blog so you can hear it.

What do you think? I am distraught. Seriously disturbed by this world. But WOW. Praise Jesus for people who are willing and able to go and serve these children. I think that is awesome that the guy and his family are going down there to run the orphanage. Someday maybe that will be me, cuddling and loving on precious kids. I'm all yours, Lord!!

This is a really great video, it just made me want to start an orphanage too. I have had that distant dream for about a year now, but that really encouraged me even more, I really want to do it!

Oh, thank you for sharing this!

thanks for spreading the word molly! I added joanna's (she helped start the orphanage) newsletter to our blog so you can read more about it and the other ministry's her team started while in ethiopia if you want to.
