Emily’s Kids

West Africa 2-4-12 156

I WAS WRONG. In my heart I was wrong. Yes, write it down, I admit it. I was absolutely wrong. Emily set out on a mission endeavor of pure and completely unadulterated faith. Like Abraham in the beginning of His walk with God, she has set out to the place that God has determined.

From early days as a young girl, Emily has carried a calling from God to build an orphanage for children in Uganda. She certainly has a love for African children, having been with me twice to Mali. I have seen an entirley different young lady in Africa than what I see in the US. Don’t get me wrong. She is of faith and faithful in the US, although rather quiet. But in Africa she lights up as bright as the sun.

She has found a place in a previously war torn part of the country where there is no home for unwanted babies. She is returning in a few days and will work in another baby’s home until her legal work is finished and the first phase of the home will be built. It costs about $100 a month to sponsor one of these babies, and her first phase will provide for ten.
Please pray for Emily. And if you feel led to faithfully support this work, contact me at bradbessent@msn.com and I will connect you to her ministry.

“O God, faithful Father, unleashe Your love through the work of this your servant, Emily. Supply all she needs. Use her to advance Your Kingdom.”

Oh, how was I wrong? I thought she was going off without a detailed plan. How would God provide? Where was the support? And there is a fine line between faith and presumption. But I believe that Emily is setting out with the same determination and faith that I read about in the life of George Mueller. God bless you, Emily.
