Thanks to our amazing friend, Boyd Guy (check out his website here), we have the perfect shirt to help us spread awareness about God's heart for the orphan and raise funds to bring our little one home. The design will be large on the front of the dark grey t-shirt.
Just in case you wondered, we know the verse we are using isn't speaking about physical orphans. John 14:18 is about Jesus promising that the Holy Spirit would come . . . the Living God dwelling within you . . . the sign that you are a son instead of an orphan.
We chose this verse because the reality that we are adopted through Jesus is the foundation and fuel for us to pursue adoption. We hope that as people wear our shirt they will have the chance to tell our story and to raise awareness about the plight of orphans all over the world. But more importantly we hope that wearing our shirt will give people a unique opportunity to tell their own adoption story . . . going from an orphan to a son or daughter of the King through faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!
Our prayer is that one day we will see and be able to tell our son how God used his status as an orphan and adoption into our family to draw people to eternal life and adoption in Christ! What a great day that will be!
