Monday Monday

I had a great weekend. The marriage conference was great, I very much enjoyed spending time with our friends. I found a greater appreciation for my husband who has taken wonderful care of me since I developed this tendinitis in my foot.

While we were at the conference we learned that Clay and Renee Crosse are ambassadors for Holt International. Holt International is a Christian organization that provides temporary foster care for children over seas while they wait to be either adopted or returned to their birth family. Jeff and I both felt called to sponsor a child. This means that we will provide $30.00 a month for this child to have food, clothes and necessites provided. This will last until he is placed with a family... usually 6-12 months.

Our child's name is Gyeong-heum and he will be 1 year old on Feb 27, 2010. We will never meet this child but I pray for him daily... sometimes several times daily.

After the marriage conference Jeff took me to Savers. I got some yarn and started a baby blanket... I am very happy with how it is working up. You can click on the photo to see it in a lager form.
