The Home of God's Love

Home of God's Love, Lu-Dong Taiwan

I want to tell you all about something very important that is going to happen to me quite soon. Over a serious of rather fortunate events I have been blessed with the opportunity to go to Taiwan in August to serve at an orphanage in Lu-Dong, The Home of God's Love. I will be gone from August 3 to the middle of November. There are children of all ages at the orphanage, but my responsibility will be primarily the care of infants (along with 3 other volunteers). THOGL has at this time 22 infants that need looking after. It will be challenging at times, but I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for me. Its been a miraculous journey up to this point, just how He has opened doors and allowed for this opportunity to come about. I would appreciate prayers not only for myself over the next few months, but for my family and the orphanage that I will be volunteering at.

If you have any questions or are interested a little more in the THOGL, I would love to hear from you! There are some links on the sidebar for those of you who want to look through pictures from other people who have travelled to the orphanage and back. It really gives you a good idea of what life will be like there. Once in Taiwan I will still have access to Internet, so please feel free to keep in contact, any and all news from home will be an encouragement!
