1 Corinthians 1:27

Nothing can stop God from revealing himself to His children: not the government; not disability; not abandonment.

Take a look at these faces… can’t you see the joy of the Lord in each?

I just returned from two weeks loving on and being loved by children with special needs at a faith-based orphanage in China. Even before they were born God chose them and adopted them as His own. The logic of communism, the distaste for children with disabilities, and the pain of being orphaned say that these children should never know the name of Jesus. But I tell you our God is bigger and these children are coming to know their Lord, revealing it to all who visit.

We pray for breakthrough in the government that the gospel may be made known. We pray for orphans to be set in families. We pray for children with disabilities to receive value and services. Is this not what is being accomplished through these children? I tell you I have witnessed Him answering each of these prayers. God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong (1 Corinthians 1:27). He chose the unwanted and the disabled to bring the gospel to China and to completely transform my life.

When I take a look at these faces, I can’t help but thank the Lord for the unique ways in which He works!
