When I walked across the street to tell my nephew that I would provide the necessary funds to help complete their international adoption, I felt the Lord’s presence walking with me. Twenty-one years later, their little baby girl is now a beautiful, Apostolic lady filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in Jesus’ name. When her grandfather (my younger brother) was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she moved 1,000 miles to help her “Grandpa and Grandma.” Little did I realize the blessing God would return simply because I obeyed His voice.

When I chose to give a sizable gift to New Beginnings International Children’s & Family Services, it was because my gift will help make an eternal difference for many precious children, just like my great-niece. I’m thankful that God has provided me with an opportunity to give back to Him for all He has done for me.
