Ten things the Wetherell's have been up to

#1- We celebrated my mother-in-laws 60TH Birthday at our house
with 40 of her friends and family!
#2 We have been doing never ending amounts of adoption paperwork and classes. We have 2 more classes left this month and then we will have
everything done except for our home study, Yahoo!!!
#3 Church this week was really good, the music was phenomenal, Sunday school was refreshing and the message was great.
#4We took family pictures last week and the picture below is from them
I have been thinking alot this week about how my little man looked like this
at this time last year and am just blown away about how much he has grown and changed.
#5- Myself and this little snotty boy spent last week in Jasper, playing outside and hanging out with dad.
(sorry the camera focused on my dress sleeve & not our faces)
#6- I took a 2 hour nap on Sunday and it was bliss.
#7We have been spending alot of time outside with this wonderful
weather before it gets too chilly.
#8 spending time with family
#9 practicing words with Whitt, as his vocabulary is growing and growing. His word lately is "Tuck"- Truck.
#10- I got bored so I decided to paint this design in Whittaker's/guest bathroom. I still need to paint a second coat on the White but have yet to do it.

The End.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER

All it takes is one. All it took was one strand of E.coli to be processed into one hamburger patty, to make it to one burger king, to one mom, whose one son, took one bite and the one life he had would then be over. All it took was a series of one events to lead to one of the biggest recalls on beef. Because of one situation America has never been the same.

In 2001, one man, Vernon burger, who had, one passion, that being Jesus, took one trip, to Southern Sudan and connected with one bishop, who was trying to love and spread the gospel to many who were orphaned by the civil war. Since that one trip in 2001, HIS VOICE GLOBAL has been in an ongoing relationship with the EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church), 10 years and three orphanages later they seek to continue the movement to open a fourth.

You might ask the question what makes this place so special? Sudan was in war for over 20 years before signing a peace agreement in 2006. Until the peace agreement this was the longest civil war to date in human history, leaving over 2 million dead and many children without parents. So what makes this place unique!?!? Many things but one is there are many who have teamed up, like HIS VOICE GLOBAL and The Village Church, to be a gospel centered presence through proclamation and practice. While The Village Church has sent many teams to train pastors, equip leaders and love the children in these orphanages in Yei, HIS VOICE GLOBAL was the door that God used to bring a gospel centered presence from the west into this area of the world. Now there is an opportunity for you to be a part of this continued movement of Christ in this region for as little as a dollar.

This past September a group of 13 from all walks of life from Reach Records, The village Church, Red Revolution, Collision Records and HIS VOICE GLOBAL partnered under The Village banner to go and minister to those in Southern Sudan. They ministered through teaching, medical, music, and loving children who were victims of the Civil War that now live in one of the three Orphanages sponsored by HIS VOICE GLOBAL. Moved by the fruit there and continued need, Tedashii, Lecrae (Reach Records artist), Swoope (Collision Records artist) and Jai teamed up to do a single to raise awareness and funds for a fourth orphanage in Southern Sudan. The single, which is slated to be released November 16th under new label Collision Records is called Actions Speak Louder. This single and symbol seen above calls believers to move beyond awareness and put their prayers in motion, to quote the song. The symbol inspired by the scriptures that say a strand of three cords are not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12), the exclamation points showing the immediate nature of the call to apply the gospel (Luke 4:18-19), the highlight of one exclamation point showing the power of one to change and lead others and the patch like design showing the reality that there is strength in numbers, calling believers to action, an action beyond themselves.

The average number of songs downloaded per day are close to 10,000,000 yes that is correct 10 million. Come November 16th HIS VOICE GLOBAL only needs over 250,000 one’s to download this amazing song (which is not even 10% of the daily average) to complete and have a fourth self sustaining orphanage. We are not asking you to change your lifestyle just point your efforts toward something that will last. The amazing thing about this whole campaign is that 100 percent of the profits from the song will go toward this fourth orphanage. All it takes is one!!!

Go to Itunes.com (or click on the top picture) and purchase this song so you can help AMAZING children like the one below, seriously how could you turn from this precious little face.
