Blessed By The Body

We were fortunate enough to be asked to be part of North Metro Church's HOPE MARKET and today was the kick-off day. Their incredible team created this awesome booth for us complete with looping video...

When we walked in together early this morning and took it all in - Mebrate saw this picture of Brighton on the wall and yelled (and I mean YELLED):

"That's my Brighton! That's my brother! My baby brother!
Meron was squealing with delight. Our girls love their brother, no doubt.

We saved the most authentic Ethiopian pieces for today - the girls decked out in their traditional gear. They stood in their little spot for both services with us and handed out cards and told anybody who would listen about their brother and the "babies in Africa that we send formula to... because they don't have food..."

And they loved it!

As I stood there today - with every member of my family - telling people about a place we love and a passion God has placed on our hearts - I am not sure if I have ever felt more full.

Thanks NMC and all those who came to our booth, asked questions, listened and shared generously. You fed babies today. And ya gave God all the glory... proud to call you guys family!

I commented on here a while back. We are in the process of our first Ethiopian adoption and I would love to learn more about what you guys are doing with the formula, how you ship it over, what they need etc. etc. I would love to join this cause here in Houston!! Feel free to comment on my blog with any info you can or shoot me an email.

Ya know. The Christophers sat a table and watched yall. Realized how proud we are to have been able to watch this passion and obedience grow and to watch what you have passed down to your kids.. You are the hands and feet of Jesus, no doubt. It is am awesome privilege to watch your family obey!
