The wood, hay and stubble that we're so heavily vested in is going up in smoke, with or without Congressional intervention. Today, tomorrow, or a decade from now, it's going. Gone. In light of that, I have a bold request for you...an invitation to invest in something that will outlast anything Wall Street has.
Those of you that have been following this for a while know that a week ago, we flew to Florida on a few hours notice to adopt twin infant girls who were about to be put into the state foster care system. Tonight, those two little girls have names, a father and a mother, three brothers and a sister, a good hope and a good future.
Without going into details, it's remarkable our twins were born at all. Unfortunately, every day, children like them don't survive the womb. They are aborted, often because people believe that the children will be unwanted. Adoption is one way the church can send a clear prophetic signal - that we want the children that the world would reject.
In coming days, you're going to hear a lot about adoption from Kelsey and I. We are setting our face to raising money for others to adopt and putting adoption on the forefront of the church's agenda. Your giving into this need frees us up to spread the word about adoption.
Again, thanks to those of you who have already given so generously. For those of you who are wondering how you can help, I have two requests:
1) Go to this section of RandyandKelsey.com and give electronically or find out where to send a check.
2) Forward this post to friends you may have who love adoption and the prayer movement.
To date, the largest amounts have come in from people we don't even know who love the idea of adoption and the prayer movement converging. Send this post or others that you found really connected with you on to everyone you know.
If you've ever thought "I should do something...", I'm asking that you do it now. It is the investment opportunity of a lifetime.
