Life Changing Summer

James 1:27 "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."

We are excited to announce that some changes are coming to the Harder household this summer. After much prayer, we have decided to host a boy from China for a month. God has an amazing way of working things out in our lives! A friend is adopting two boys from China and she posts pictures on Facebook all the time. When we saw that Great Wall was looking for host families, we felt called to host. We prayed and asked God for wisdom, to know what child we were to host. When we saw "The Piano Man" and received information about him, we felt that God wanted us to host him. God has confirmed this decision a few different ways since we signed the contract. It is amazing to see how God works and we are so thankful that we get to participate in the work He is doing. 

The girls are very excited for this summer!! They have been going through their toys so that they can "sell" them and make money to help "The Piano Man". Nothing touches a mom's heart like seeing your children want to be God's hands and feet to others, especially another child! We can't wait to see how God will use this summer to continue the transforming work He is doing in our lives to make us into His image!

Great Wall is looking for other families to host children this summer. You don't have to have an interest in adopting to host, you just need to have a heart for children/orphans. There are children of different ages available to host. If you want more information, go to Great Wall. The process to sign up was very easy and the people who work at Great Wall are super friendly, helpful, and informative. Here are some of the kids waiting to be sponsored. Wouldn't it be amazing if we all pitched in a hosted a child this summer so that Great Wall had to find more kids to match with families?

Would you consider giving your love and a month of your summer to host a child in need? Let's be the hands and feet of Christ to these children. None of us know how long we have on earth. Let's live each day to the fullest for God!!
