Sanctity of Human Life

This Sunday is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.  Our family firmly believes that ALL human life is a sacred creation of a Holy God.  Because of Christ's love for us, we are compelled to love others, especially the least of these.  Dima was one such person.  In his country he was not valued, he was not considered worthy.  I saw it with my own eyes and experienced that painful reality until our plane landed in Amsterdam.  And to be perfectly honest, Eric and I pray that someday we will again be able to rescue another precious human life and show them the love of a real family.  Eric and I have also learned that you never say, "Never" to God!

I pray that as you watch this video you are moved with compassion towards the least of these, be it orphans, widows, the disabled, the imprisoned, the impoverished, or the hurting.  May God grant you vision on how you yourself can serve the least of these in their time of need.  After all, God gave His one and only Son for you that you may have eternal life.  The LEAST we can do, is share that sort of love with our fellow man.
