Meet the McBrides

Click HERE to meet our friends, the McBrides.  I "met" Mitzi and Shane shortly after the earthquake in Haiti, as they were working with Hope for Orphans to help Haitians in whatever way God asked them to.  We emailed each other many times over the months, and I felt so blessed to get to know this family who has a huge heart for helping the fatherless and living out James 1:27.

Then I met the McBrides in real life at the Baby Conference last summer in San Antonio.  They were working the Hope for Orphans booth, and Shane kept encouraging me to publish Chrissie's story.  They had prayed fervently for Chrissie and our family, and, as we know, when we pray for others, our hearts are connected to them in a way that's not possible without God.  The tears in their eyes and the smiles on their faces as they offered up their love, prayers, and support of our family is imprinted on my heart forever.  A family I had never met before, yet felt like I'd known them for a lifetime as they hugged my neck.  Only God can tie heartstrings together so intimately.

Now it's time for us to pray for the McBrides and support them on the journey God has called them to.  They're moving to Zambia, Africa, to serve Him and His people through Lifesong for Orphans.  They'll be spreading the Good News to the nations, as He has called all of us to do.  They will be serving the weak, the poor, the needy, the fatherless, as He has called all of us to do.  They are selflessly obeying God's call, as he has called all of us to do.

I am  grateful for the McBride family, as they step out in faith, obey, serve, give, love, and model what it means to be a Believer whose hearts break for the things that break our Father's heart.  They are not just broken without action, they are broken WITH action.  They are stepping out to make a difference, and I can't wait to see what God does through them on this journey.

Would you please click HERE to support the McBride family with your prayers?  They're hosting a blog giveaway, for His glory, and I'd love for you to get to know the McBrides and witness God's glory shining through them.  I know you'll be blessed as God ties your heartstrings to the McBrides, as He did with me.

Thank you, friends.
