Open Your Eyes, Open Your Hearts: J127

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:
to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself 
from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27

This is Victoria Charbonneau.

In October, 2000, Vickie visited Kazakhstan with a heart to look after orphans.
By 2009, she had relocated her life there and now operates the J127 Ranch in Taraz.
She and Beth Turnock are dedicated to changing the lives of young people there.
She returned for the birth of her grandchild and to advocate for the kids in Kazkhstan.

Some of you may have a heart for the orphan and perhaps you feel called to adopt.
Others may feel God leading you to help in other ways, perhaps sharing your time
or your talents or your financial resources.

Vickie and Beth need your help.

Vickie came by to bring me imaging studies on girls in her care who hope to come to
Richmond for surgical correction of some pretty debilitating problems.

We are working on getting all the involved parties on board and I am optimistic.

Vickie also brought Kazakh chocolate (aka Kazakholate)!
So yummy!

Support them today.
Then tell a friend.
