In the name of carrying each others burdens, on Sundays I will do a post on a family that is fundraising, a family that needs prayer, or a miracle....and give you an opportunity to partner with them in lifting some of their burden. Today, I am going to share the Westbrook Family again. They are on their way to raising their money to bring their two girls home to Ch*na, but still need a substantial amount by April 30.
Please share their story, help lift their burden and partner with them to reach their goal. If you would like to be next Sundays "Share the Burden" post....please leave a comment and I will add you!
