A Care Package & A Prayer

Last week we sent a care package to KayLi through Red Thread China. We were so impressed with the service they provide. I really couldn't recommend them more. Ann is amazing and I'm so thankful for all she has done! She was so thoughtful! We were so excited when she sent us a picture of the items we ordered. This simple picture has become my prayer list for the nannies at the orphanage, the children there and for our daughter.

"Lord, thank you so much for the nannies that care for our daughter. Please give them all they need to provide for her and all the children with her. May you give them a little time to enjoy this tea we sent and know that they are appreciated. I ask especially that you would help them to know you as their Savior. That you would fill them with your love so that it will overflow into the lives of all the children they care for.

Lord, I ask that you would make it possible for the children in orphanages around the world to have toys to play. Toys that would teach them and allow them to use their imaginations and dream. Toys that they can hold when they are scared. Toys that would come from people who love you and want to be a blessing. Toys that will remind them they are loved.

Lord, I ask that you would guide the nannies as they take pictures with the camera we sent. That they would understand that we want to use those pictures to teach KayLi where she has come from. And that we would have those pictures to remind us to pray for the children that will still be there when she leaves. May many people come forward to be your hands and feet to them. May they all feel your love and come to know you as Lord.

Lord, I ask that you would give the nannies many opportunities to show KayLi the photo album of our family. That you would use it as a way to prepare her heart and soul for all that she is about to go through. That when she sees us we would not be strangers to her. That she would know how much we love her and want her to come home.

Lord, I ask that when the nannies dress KayLi in her new pretty clothes that she will feel pretty and special. That she would know we sent them to her because we love her already. That she will feel like the princess she is, the daughter of the King! May she someday be an amazing display of Your splendor!


Oh and because Ann lives in China she was able to contact the orphanage directly. She received updated measurements and even pictures of KayLi! I can't tell you how much it meant to see her well cared for and HAPPY! Since I can't share pictures on the internet yet, let me just say that she looks just like this sun....seriously!!!
