This is Hope..continued

Through 2008, God was working on our hearts leading us down a path that we were unfamiliar with. He was leading us to places we had not experienced before. Events, emotions, places in our hearts we didn’t expect to find, yet knew that it was not coincidence we found ourselves on this journey. Through it all, He was opening our hearts to reach beyond our family walls. To reach out to those who needed hope…

Aleksejs Jurcenko is an eleven year old boy from Latvia, whose mom dropped him off at an orphanage when he was just eight years old. Since then, he has lived his life in the walls of an orphanage except for the opportunity to visit America last year. Alex needed hope and willing families provided that for him as a hosted child. At the end of last year, our friends spent four weeks with Alex and we are now working toward offering him that journey once more. Our goal is to provide more than just another hosting opportunity and therefore our cost is greater. The journey we are on will be to change Alex’s life forever. God has clearly led us here and we are confident that He will continue to provide for us as we step out into a new chapter of our lives.

It is with excitement that we ask for your support on this journey. Your prayers are crucial and your financial support is appreciated more than we can express to you. We are stepping out to raise $5,500 in this first phase of our journey. This will cover the costs associated with bringing Alex to America: airfare, transportation, visa’s, insurance, other travel related expenses and hosting fees. Please know that every little bit helps…every $10 bill counts. All contributions made through this page will go to New Horizons for Children and are tax deductable. For those of you that God leads to go over and above our posted goal on this page, we ask that you contact us directly to see how you can help with the additional expenses we will incur during this process.

Please feel free to pass this link along to all you know.

Most of all we want to say Thank You for standing with us through this journey! It is exciting and we appreciate your prayers and support.

Kevin, Cindy, Kristen & Rachel
