Meet Sasha

This past summer we were able to host The Russian Orphan Choir that was brought to CO through Nightlight Christian Adoptions. We were so blessed to be able to be a part of these children's lives for the few days they were here. Those few days have left us praying for these kids. Praying that they come to know Jesus as their Savior, praying that they feel loved and protected, praying that they know in their hearts how deeply they affected all of us and how much we care for them. Sasha touched mine and Jeff's heart while she was here.
Sasha was hosted by the Cherry family here in Northern Colorado. I asked them if they would share a little bit about Sasha with us:


Sasha is an outgoing teenage girl with a heart for people. She has a very good sense of humor and likes to have fun. When she lived with us for a week, she would always make sure she was pleasing us. She would also make sure everyone was taken care of. At one point I was sharing with Sasha about the work we were doing at an orphanage in Haiti. I showed her some videos and some pictures and she began to cry. When I asked her what was wrong, she said that she was very happy that we were helping them and wished she could help them too. :) Sasha was a typical teenage girl with the good and bad but certainly deserves a forever family!
Please pray for Sasha's future.
Jeremiah 29:11 states this amazing promise:
For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.

All of the children in orphanages in Russia need our prayers, especially those who are close to aging out of the orphanage system.
