James 2:14-17 (NLT)


26 Hours Left for a Host Family to Find Sasha!

1 Comment

Sasha, the 14 year old (soon to be 15) orphan from Ukraine who our family hosted in our home for 5 weeks this past Christmas, has the opportunity to return on another hosting trip June 28 to Aug 1.  All he needs now is a family to take him in!  He’s a wonderful boy, and I guarantee he will be as much of a blessing to you and your family as you will be to him!  Our family really wants to help him have the opportunity to return and has already made a $500 scholarship for him. The deadline to sign up is Friday May 13th by 9pm EST.  

Please pray for Sasha and forward this message on to others!  Please contact me or New Horizons for Children ( ) for more info!

Sasha’s first bio from last fall:
"Sasha, 14 year old boy who has lived 8 years in an orphanage for ‘delayed children’ (yet shows absolutely no signs of delays.) VERY engaged with our team, interested & made great effort to learn English.  Caring, considerate of others, especially children who were severely delayed.  Likes swimming, making wood furniture.  Does best in Language Arts and wants to be a builder.  His one wish would be for others to be healthy.  He helps ‘calm the crazy kids’ per his social worker, has patience.  Gave each team member a great hug, not common to find a teen boy so trusting and interactive with our team!"

Sasha’s scholarship is up to $1513 now!

The odd amount is because a 5 year old child who saw the listing told her mom she wants to donate her $13 piggy bank to help him!

Please keep praying for him! He has the highest scholarship ($1513) out of the 47 kids left to be chosen! His chances of being chosen by a family are good… but we just need God to speak to that right person in the next 26 hours!

What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.
James 2:14-17 (NLT)

Please pray that someone doesn’t pass this need by and acts in faith!
