Carrier, by Jared Anderson

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
To preach good news to the poor
To bind up the broken-hearted
To make You known even more
So that people living in darkness
Will see the great light

I'll be the carrier of love and compassion
I'll be the carrier of light to the world
I'll be the carrier of hope and salvation
I will go shine Your light to the world

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
Freedom and truth to proclaim
Trade your ashes for the oil of gladness
And your sorrows for garments of praise

Here am I send me, send me.

Donations for Davids!!

UPDATE: (1/15/11) Approximately $11,000 has been raised at Project Hopeful, in addition to the $4,000 at Lifesong!!!  Davids' family is SO close to their goal!  Click HERE to visit their new blog!  GOD IS GOOD!!!

UPDATE: (1/13/11)  According to Davids' host mom, over $8,000 has already been raised in Davids' Project Hopeful fund (plus another $4,000 in a separate account at Lifesong.)  If these numbers are correct, that means that approximately $12,000 has already been raised for Davids' adoption!!!  WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE!!!

Davids' family must raise $16,000-20,000 to complete his adoption, and they have nothing to spare because they were already in the process of adopting another almost 16 year old boy from Latvia as well!  So we still have some work to do to get them over the financial mountain!

The details of this story are just astounding...I am still in awe at what God has done for this boy, and by the response of His children (us, YOU, everyone who has helped to spread the word, PRAY, and raise money!)  We have witnessed something spectacular!!!

UPDATE: DAVIDS HAS A FAMILY!!!  Click HERE to read what his host mom just posted!  PRAISE OUR ALMIGHTY FATHER IN HEAVEN!!!

Hi All!!  I woke up this morning to the news that they are VERY close to securing a family for Davids!!!  YAAAAY!!!!  His host mama posted that the family is very close to committing to this precious boy!  PRAISE THE LORD!!!  Click HERE to read her posts for the most recent updates!

Also, she said that Project Hopeful has agreed to set up a donations account for Davids.  That means that you can make a tax exempt donation to help raise money to bring him home.  What a blessing it will be for this family to not only welcome a beautiful son into their lives, but also to not have to worry about the enormous financial strain of an international adoption!!! GOD IS GOOD!!!

Thank you ALL for praying and spreading the word about Davids!  It has been AWESOME to watch God move among us!!  We have all been blessed by this boy's story, by his life, and by the mighty power and Love of God that will save him!!!


Keep spreading the word so the funds for Davids' homecoming can be raised!
