The Bring Me Hope Night Walk!

This year our family was so blessed to once again host one of the groups for the 2009 Bring Me Hope Night Walk for the Chinese Orphans!



-----------------



Here is Judah with his BMH shirt!






In preparation for the walk we taught Judah how to say, "Bring Me Hope"! When he says it, it often sounds more like "Bring Me Home". How cute and yet how true for the Orphans...

Yes, this year we grew! Last year it was just our family, but this year the Knifongs and the Ashmores joined us! Below is everyone listening to the conference call.
