Ghana Bound....



“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40

THE LORD WHO CAN DO MORE THAN WE
EVER DREAMED OR IMAGINED…

 December 27th, 2010- January 8th, 2011

Feeding Program November 2010
 Both of our hearts were in a place where we were willing to “GO,” but a door had not yet been opened for us. On Tuesday, November 23rd, we were asked by the O’Leary family to prayerfully consider a trip over Christmas break. The Lord confirmed this trip in both of our “Type A” hearts J knowing that it would take us out of our comfort zones to plan a trip in one month and cut into time we would have spent at home with family. We booked our flight on the 24th and I am writing this letter on the 25th (Thanksgiving) and could not think of anything else to be more thankful for than a family of believers to lift us up in prayer over this trip. We know very little “details” at this point, but I believe the Lord has it that way for a reason. At this point, we are open to serving HIS children in whatever way it presents itself once we are there. We do know we will be staying with a sweet couple in their guest room at Charity Kingdom Orphanage. We will be helping with a local feeding program for the street children and building a clean water well! We may have the opportunity to meet our Compassion sponsored child, Gibson! J I have been asked to do a general medical assessment of some of the children so please pray for wisdom and the healing power of our Jesus. One thing we committed to when we told the Lord to “Send Us” was a long term relationship. We have no intention of popping into the lives of these children and parents and bringing a “temporary fix” and then coming home with a “good experience.” It is worth so much more than that. We intend to DO LIFE with these people and children of God. We know this is short notice this time, but we do want you all to join in this LIFE journey with us. Our dreams are huge but I guarantee you the Lord will continue to do FAR more than we ever dreamed or imagined. Please come walk beside us…prayerfully, physically, emotionally, mentally, financially…. WE NEED THE BODY OF CHRIST. We were never meant to walk this road alone. 

If you feel led to give financially, ALL funds will go towards LOVING HIS children. We will take lots of pictures and possibly videos so that you can witness the fruit of your giving.

Currently, the orphanage is in need of shoes (ages 3-7), school supplies, spiral notebooks, beginner reading books for their elementary kids, and any medical supplies (specifically children's and adult tylenol and ibprofen because the formulas made there are ineffective). We are also taking many cloth diapers. If you would like to give money to purchase inserts for these diapers, please note that on your check or let us know!

If you would like to donate money or materials, please send it to 1520 Britling Drive. Knoxville, TN. 37922. Checks can be made to "Jeremy Miller c/o Ghana Trip." If you have any questions, please call or email us at the address below.
