Jesus Loves Children

By Doug Franklin January 9, 2010

Angie and I have friends in Uganda that adopted an abandoned, infant girl with HIV. They got her about two weeks ago and yesterday she died. An incredibly painful story and a miraculous one all at the same time. To think that God loved this little girl so much that he sent his kids to rescue her in her hour of loneliness. He made sure that there was someone to hold and love her when she passed from this world to new life. He loved her that much. Jesus does love the little children. Great work Matt and Crystal!
