Drawn From Water

After reading this and this, I was facinated by a very new orphanage that has started in Ethiopia. New, as in started in mid-February of this year! I'm just amazed everyday at how little I am aware of what is going on in other parts of our world. And, I'm even more amazed at what people are willing to do when hearts are moved. Truly dying to self. The least I can do is spread the word about what they are doing when they ask me to.

This video gives the basic story of how the orphanage began. I love the Scripture that Tracy has on her fundraising t-shirts:

Proverbs 31:8 - "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."

Who is going to speak up for these children?

How can that not blow anyone away? You can go to and read "The Story" of how it began, and ways to help. They also have a blog we can follow to find out the latest.

Wow! That was so powerful....I'm speechless. I'd like to share that on my blog somehow. Could I link to your post or do you want me to link directly to Drawn From Water?

It's so easy to go about our day and forget all that is going on!! Thank you for sharing that.
