Sam and Esther.....

There are no words to describe how I am feeling after watching this video. I can't stop crying...but want desperately for this to move me into action. Lord, please don't let me forget....don't let me stay comfortable. There are so many "Sam and Esthers" just waiting for someone to love them....to care....to bring hope.

Love you all,
Lindsey

P.S. I am overwhelmed by the people who have e-mailed me about helping our neighbors....thank you just isn't enough!!

Thanks for sharing this Lindsey... it breaks my heart to see those children so starved for food, for love, for a chance to grow up.

Tears are falling... I am utterly speechless,heartbroken and guilty...guilty of becoming absorbed in worldly things...totally sheltered from such suffering...I want to post on my blog too.

Dear Jesus, help us to be your hands and feet for the little ones of this world. Help us to seek out ways to pour money, resources, time, energy to speak and heal them because so many do not. God, thank for these two that were given the chance to survive. Move us to action.

I did not just cry when I watched this I sobbed! I put it on my blog yesterday and words can not describe how horrible and selfish I felt after watching it!

Humbling is the only word I have.

Thanks so much for sharing this as well. I'm just heartbroken and ashamed for being so selfish and caught up in what I have and "need" and then I see this. Thank you for opening my eyes today.

Lindsey, Mnay of us fail to see the desperation orphaned children face each day!! No matter what country it's in as long as we stand and help even if in a small way we could turn this around!! Thanks for sharing and may God use this as a tool to move people to help orphans around the world!

Ever since you posted this video, my mind has not stopped thinking of it. So I posted it on my blog as well in hopes that people will be inspired to give just a bit more this year.

Lindsey, you, Chris and Eliana are an amazing family and I am ever so inspired by you.

My prayers are with Eliana and her health.
