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.

Help Didzis find his forever family!


Isn't he precious!!

Didzis is here in the U.S. as part of a host program with Project 143, but will be returning to Latvia on January 15!  Here is the description we received about Didzis:

"Didzis is a very giving little boy and wants to please. He looks to follow your example.  He is a fun kid and that brings a lot of excitement. He leaves a positive impression with people – from the store clerks, to the dental office staff, to our family / friends. He is kind and confident; smiling alot.  Didzis has been able to bond with his host family.  He is described as approachable, able to have goofy play, hold hands, likes goodnight tuck-ins, will give hugs unprompted but not excessively, genuine, likes affection, ok being controlled/commands by adults, no rage but has been upset and tends to internalize and walk away/take himself out of situation, kind to the animals, intense, but not mean at all. 

Didzis loves puzzles, coloring, video games and playing with his cars.  He loves crashing cars together, making weapons out of legos a lot, excitable by guns “pistola” “bazooka”, really animated when he sees blasting as in star wars. He can be a little rough in open play situation in terms of cutting in line, take toys away from others--normal behavior for orphan boys.

Didzis will require a family with a lot of energy and ability to structure his play time and study time. His host family feels he would do well w/ a family with no other children or older kids as role models and helpers. Firm is good, but he may shut down if too firm.  He’s a chatter box, always on the go. Sports/organized activity is a must. He seems to really like to play and watch sports.  He’s very active, fidgets a lot, has had a hard time sitting through events like nutcracker and Disney on ice and this type of stuff.   On the other hand, he can sit and focus on a puzzle for 45+ minutes or doing work in an activity book (like tracing letters)."

For more information contact Stephanie Carpenter at , or Tammy Cannon at .

Please join me in prayer for is going to be extremely difficult for him to return to Latvia, so he needs all the prayer support he can get during that transition!  Let's pray that he will feel the comfort of the Holy Spirit, and that he will find the love of a forever family soon!

There is also a sibling group of 3 here in the U.S. as part of the same Project 143 host program. Contact Stephanie for more information about those precious ones as well.  All I know is that they are a 6 year old boy, and twin 4 yr olds (1 boy, 1 girl).  They need to be adopted together.
