A borrowed blog post

Recently, Unicef concluded that there are indeed 163 million orphans in the world today. 163 million children marked for death by satan unless a complacent world chooses to stop turning the other way and pretending that they aren't there.
This is our generation's opportunity to stop a holocaust.
Lord have mercy on us if we don't.

What is happening to orphans right now as I write?

They are hungry.
They are eating trash.
They are chased away from the trash.

They are naked.
They are exhausted from running scared all the time.
They are tied up.
They live without shelter.
They live in fear of being abducted.
They live in fear of being eaten by wild animals.
They are raped.
They are prostituted.
They are beaten---in unimaginable ways.
They witness their friends being sold.
They live in fear being sold themselves.
They are forced to lie.
They steal out of necessity.
They are burned.
They are bruised.

Sometimes they wish they were never born.
They feel invisible.
They wonder why God doesn't like them.

They are crying out to the Lord because of their oppressor. Isaiah19:20

And in a world where one third of the population claims to be Christian--- there needs to be no one left behind.
We know better.

This was borrowed from Tracey's blog: Unveiled Faces...such a powerful post that has left me thinking... What do you think?


  1. VERY powerful indeed! Unicef has been a controversial player in the international adoption arena. I'm happy to see they aren't dumbing down the numbers to support their own causes.
    Thank you for spreading the news!

  2. I feel privileged to know Tracy in real life. She is a beautiful person inside and out and I love that she always speaks for the orphans. I pray that others will see and stand up for the orphans as well. Thank you for sharing her post.

  3. I just keep thinking about Isaiah 58:10-God just keepts telling me over and over "spend yourself" on their behalf. This just spurs me on toward that!!!!

  4. Love this post! Saw this on her blog the other day! Powerful!!

  5. Thank you for this repost. I am blessed to call Tracy and friend in real life. We meet a few months before our relo to Hong Kong. I cannot wait to spend more time with her and her beautiful family when we return State side. She radiates His love everywhere she goes!
