We went to Winter Jam 2012 last night in Indy. Had a great time, btw. Just what I needed after my crazy head post from yesterday.
Anyway, we knew we would get to see some of our favorite bands and I still think I have some hearing loss from Skillet!!
Jeremy’s cousin plays drums for Kari Jobe. I know, super cool!!
I thought that would be the highlight of my evening, seeing someone we know get to play for one of our favorite worship leaders in front of 15,000 people!!
It was awesome! She worshiped and led us into the presence of the Lord in a powerful way.
But the highlight of my evening came when they spotlighted adoption.
Holt International is a sponsor of Winter Jam. I didn’t know this.
They started speaking and telling stories about international adoption and my heart broke.
I started missing Mollie more than ever…..It probably didn’t help that I had my I <3 Adoption shirt on and she had already been on my mind all day….
But I LOVED that they brought to 15,000 people’s attention the need for not just forever families for orphaned children around the world and at home, but the need for sponsorship.
They gave people a chance to sponsor a child until they are adopted.
And isn’t that what the Bible instructs us to do.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans…..” James 1:27
Not everyone is called to adopt, but in my opinion, everyone is called to do something.
