Through an agency that specializes in providing glimmers of hope to children truly mired in hopelessness, Debbie, Payton, Kia and I are hosting a 13-year old girl from a Latvia orphanage the 4 weeks surrounding Christmas.
Latvia is one of Baltic States released from 50 years under the Soviet boot, but still slogging through the muck and grimy residue of communism and godless cruelty. Orphans are among those suffering the most. The worst prospects—young orphan girls, 60% of whom end up in prostitution or caught in the web of human trafficking.
We can’t bring this crisis to an end. But for one girl, for four weeks, we’ll make every effort to light a fire of hope, and at very least show her the joy, comfort and love of a family who cares; to teach her about God’s deep love for her.
Perhaps it will lead to a lifelong relationships and a future that bucks the odds.
We’re excited about this opportunity. Can you help? We are raising funds to bring this Latvian girl to our county for an unforgettable Christmas. The organization we are working through, New Horizon’s for Children, has set up a fund-raising page for us. Donations are tax-deductible if sent through this donation page, and every donation through this page will go directly to this child’s expenses.

Make a difference. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
