How You Can Help Orphans This Mother's Day

   Mothers come in lots of packages. I have been mothered by more women than I can count and in more ways than I can even recall. It is unfathomable for me to imagine my life without one mother, let alone all the others. So, when I think about all the children in the world that don't have a mom to call their own, my heart wants to explode with hurt.

   Enter two precious girls that I have been blessed to know. These two just-out-of-college-beauties chose to delay the normal "get a job" "find a husband" life that most of us choose or fall in to and instead move to Botswana to become temporary mothers to 25 orphans.( Orphan Care Center ) I have tried to explain to them in words (that fail) how important this thing they are doing will be to those children. To give a child a home and a mom to call his own is such pure ministry.

   So, this Mother's Day, I am giving a personal gift to the Botswana Orphan Care Center in honor of my own mom, mother-in-law, and all the other women who have walked beside me and mothered me along the way. If you would like to join me, I've included instructions for online (or by mail) giving. No gift is too small, but if you can't give, pray. (Actually, if you do give, pray too!)
