This has been a great and busy week here at the office. The families in the El Salvador Program know of Carmen who weâ€™ve been partnering with on many issues. Carmen was in town and joined some of our staff at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Instituteâ€™s Angels in Adoption Gala on Wednesday. This is an annual event recognizing individuals that have had a substantial impact on the field of adoption or foster care. CCAI is a great organization that works hard to inform members of Congress on issues pertaining to adoption and foster care.
Our meeting with Carmen was very positive. Weâ€™re so glad to see the progress with families in the El Salvador program. Another family is traveling soon to adopt siblings and weâ€™ll be in prayer for them.
A reminder that Orphan Sunday is coming up! Itâ€™s not too late to have your church involved: www.orphansunday.org. America World is proud of our membership in the Christian Alliance For Orphans and our staff are getting their churches involved in this event. We hope youâ€™ll find a way to have your church involved, too.
Lastly, another reminder about America Worldâ€™s Family Reunion. As it gets closer, Iâ€™m looking more and more forward to seeing the families, former staff, Lineker & Amy and all the others whoâ€™ll be joining us for this day of celebration. Registration is still available <http://www.awaa.org/events/national-reunion-2009.aspx> . Weâ€™ll see you there!
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
