70%

The UN states that 70% of the worlds orphan population lives in Sub Sahara Africa.

It’s estimated that Ethiopia has over 5 million orphans, that’s nearly 15% of the population of Ethiopia.

And they are one of the poorest nations in the world with no means to care for this enormous burden.

Yet my kids are stuck behind bureaucratic red tape, ignoring the fact that these are lives and families, not pieces of paper that they are holding up in court.

So this Wednesday at the unction of several others we are having a group fasting. If you would like to join us, cool. We are praying for a true miracle on this court date, read last weeks post for more details or head over to my wife’s blog, she actually has a much more eloquent post than this one about the same subject.
