Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward . –Psalm 127:3


Veronica and her siblings are orphans…homeless…lacked resources…succumbed to malnutrition.  Meeting in India Veronica added to my lists of life changing events.  Veronica was 9 years old at the time I met her but was given 4 weeks to live.  She had the advanced stage of HIV infection but after her parent’s passing due to the detrimental ailment, she took custody of her siblings.  However, there came a time when she started developing opportunistic infections which led to loss of vision, severe fatigue, weight loss, and the list continues.  As young as she is, she yearned for a suitable home for her brother and sister.


Children are a heritage and praise God for He looks out not for only us adults, but them as well.  He welcomes them.  Personally, I have a heart for orphans and have only God to praise when we were led to share Him and supplies at that local orphanage.  This is exactly what Children’s HopeChest is all about, to represent God’s love by giving them the assurance that this is not the end for the best is yet to come in Christ Jesus! The kids desire to be held, fed and loved.  Today, we are fasting and I pray we will continue to remain in Christ via His word, prayer, fasting, worship,…unto eternity because there is power in the name of Jesus and His death on the cross of Calvary was not at all in vain.  Please join us as we partner together with God in prayer for it is priceless and indeed can move mountains!!


So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer. (Ezekiel 8:23) May God meet the kids worldwide and attend to their needs.  I pray He will continue to anoint them with His Holy Spirit and adorn them with His amazing grace.  So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29) May we all be changed from the inside-out.  My prayer encompasses physical in addition to spiritual healing that we would not grow weary doing good.  Be encouraged, brothers and sisters! May we continue to keep pressing on as we look to the Author and Finisher of our faith.


But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” –Matthew 19:14


God bless you and thank you for joining us as we participate as one in Christ during this 40 Day Fast 2008 and I pray we will ever pray without ceasing as we reach out and touch someone’s life as God’s instruments!



  1. Kelley, I am so glad you are apart of this 40 day fast!

    That child, Veronica, seems like she had such a tender heart, caring for her brother and sister that way. I have a heart for orphans as well… I am glad to see another organization caring for them.

  2. Most of my free time between semesters in college was spent with orphans and children in homes away from their family. Thanks for talking about this. I’ll be praying for you today.

  3. Great post! Thanks!
