missions minded

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

We have been given so much and we are finding ways to give back.

Lately, it seems God is placing more and more ways along our path.

We have Africa on our minds daily.
So, on that note it was wonderful to become apart of an African Fellowship group that welcomes those with hearts for orphans. We loved meeting lots of children from Bristol's Ethiopia. Now, if we could just meet her:)

the 4 youngest kiddos in this clan have only been in the States 6 months from Ethiopia. I talked with the girls and was wowed by their beauty and spirits.

On another note, some of you may have heard from me about a non-profit called Ordinary Hero. They help us find ways to help those in need- ways to be an ordinary hero. From encouraging a woman at the mission house in town, to providing backpacks for children, to finding a place to call home for orphans around the world, to ...

We went last week to the women's mission to take the backpack we had gotten for one of the sweet children... it was a backpack extravaganza...this guy's ready for school now!

a shout out to the founder of Ordinary Hero. she is doing amazing things.

joey hanging out with some proud new backpack girls...

stopping for a quick pic amidst passing out backpacks, snacks, and more...

a good thing to ask yourself...
What have you done for Jesus today?

side note- i did copy and paste a few pics- wish i had taken more with my own camera.
