Please, please, please go read that link to Renee's blog. Rene has been in this orphanage. She has spent time with Bernadette and knows how the Orphanage Director is reacting to this incredible, unbelievable adoption.
Let's come alongside the Rogers Family and help them raise the ransom for these dear children! They need the church right now! Another friend is graciously hosting a giveaway. I have donated an item, as have several others. It's not a huge, flashy giveaway, but a chance to do the hard work of James 1:27.
"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."
Please go visit Mandy's blog and contribute to the Chip-In. Leave a comment letting her know that you did. You'll have the chance to win a prize, but much more importantly, you'll show the Rogers that they are not alone in this. That others are praying and caring about dear Jessica and Mason. They are NOT forgotten!
