An Orphan's Cry

Last week, I put my Orphan Dolls into the mailbox, they left on their journey with the Holy Spirit as their guide. I have to say that they have been an intricate part of my life since January, when God told me to *create them* in order to send them on their way.

Prior to them hopping into the parcel in which they'd begin their travels in, God spoke to me. I didn't realize that what He spoke, was actually another part of the Orphan Doll Ministry. I now understand why He told me the name of one of these girls and then dropped them into my was my family's part of this ministry. You see, He is asking each of us to come to Him and say,

"Lord and what shall I do about Your orphans?"

As the tears rolled down my face at saying good-bye to the little cotton orphans that I had spent almost 9 months praying over (a pregnancy of sorts?); God hooked me up with a tangible way to fulfill another part of this mission to orphans.

So, what is my family doing about these two girls? Well, we are praying. Praying for us, for them and seriously asking God to move, as only He can. You see, God cares deeply about orphans, for the lonely, for the destitute, for those without a family. How do I know, well because He clearly speaks it in His Word.

“For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.” (Psalm 72:12)

If you want to take a peak at the Orphan Dolls website; it is here that we will follow their journey. It is here that we will see the Lord moving in Power; as He said He would.

More to come...

Beautiful simply beautiful. I remember when you began to dream about these vessels of love sent to the nations to spark a passion for adoption. Kimmie, they are simply your heart intertwined with HIs.

Also enjoyed visiting their website and will follow their journey.

I've been wondering if you had sent the dolls off. Will look forward to following their journey. May God bless you Kimmie - you have such a heart for Him.

This is such an amazing ministry. What a neat oppurtunity to share the urgency of responding to the call of caring for orphans.
You are so lucky to be able to participate in something like this! How amazing. Cherish every moment and spread the word!
