WE LOVE ADOPTION! WOO HOO!!!
Cale looks so little here.
If a picture says a thousand words, what does this say about our family?
Holden Uganda was founded in December 2010 to spread the love of Christ with people around the globe. Our mission is to provide clean drinking water, through Artesian wells, to African communities.
Our initial project was to build nine wells in Uganda, representing the nine months of life Holden lived on earth. The Lord has blessed abundantly, and we have reached that goal as of 1/8/2011. We will continue to build wells for as long as they are funded. In the words of a dear friend, “When you are in God’s will there are NO LIMITS - don’t let it stop with 9!”
These wells provide HOPE. Between 500 & 2000 Ugandan people are given hope through clean drinking water with each well. Also, each well is dedicated to a baby or child who went to heaven before his/her parents, providing hope to the families.
It is with great excitement and joy I am honored to share these photos with you today! Below is the report from Dr. Patrick, and pictures of HUF #135 in honor of Sadie Mae Norris
Thank you for choosing to partner with HUF. Our prayer is that sharing your story will encourage and show God's love to someone else.
"He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us." 2 Corinthians 1:4
"Jesus' [disciples] tried to send them away. 'Jesus doesn't have time for you!' they said. 'He's too tired.' But they were wrong. Jesus always had time for children.
'Don't ever send them away!' Jesus said. 'Bring the little ones to me.'"
"Would you have lined up quietly to see Jesus? Do you think Jesus would have asked you how good you'd been before he'd give you a hug? Would you have had to be on your best behavior? And get dressed up? And not speak until you're spoken to? Or... would you have done just what these children did -- run straight up to Jesus and let him pick you up in his arms and swing you and kiss you and hug you and then sit you on his lap and listen to your stories and your chats? You see, children loved Jesus, and they knew they didn't need to do anything special for Jesus to love them. All they needed to do was to run into his arms. And so that's just what they did."
"Well, after all the laughing and games, Jesus turned to his [disciples] and said, 'No matter how big you grow, never grow up so much that you lose your child's heart: full of trust in God. Be like these children. They are the most important in my kingdom.'"
