What Africa Was All About...

I really didn't know why God had put in my heart to go to Ethiopia until I met Hanna. If you ever watch one of my little videos make it this one. You will be hard pressed to meet a person closer to God's heart beat than Hanna. I truly believe that. Being near her was like watching a parable happening in front of my eyes. My time at Hanna's Orphan Home was the high point of my trip. I can't describe the feeling I had looking into the eyes of those beautiful children. I could feel God's passion for them. They had been snatched from the fire- saved... Everything in me knows I was sent to Africa because I was supposed to meet this woman. I am supposed to help her. She does so much with so little help because she knows it's right. Where there is a vision- there is provision... Will you help me be that provision for these children? Meet Hanna...

How Amazing Angel! It sounds like Hanna is doing a wonderful job taking care of God's children. I would love to hear more about her and possibly bring donations to her if she could use them, when I travel. Email me info about her. How far away from Layla house is she located?

Oh, Angel, how amazing. We are in the process of accepting a referral for a child in Ethiopia. Where is Hanna's home, perhaps we could visit when we pick up our child. Also,are you setting up a sponsorship program? I'm sure my husband and I would be interested. Thanks for all you do,

Thank you for sharing with others the struggles that others face all around us! I will go to AFRICA one day and I hope others are inspired by people like you. My sister will travel again this summer to Uganda, to teach rescued child soldiers who have been beaten raped and forced to fight against their own families! Boy do we have it made here, yet we take it for granted all the time! Once again, you have brought me to tears!! Thank you for all you do!!

I too would love to know more about Hanna. We are adopting a brother and sister from Ethiopia and will be traveling in maybe August. We would love to visit with Hanna first hand while we are there and see how we can get behind her.
