Help Needed for the Adoption of a Guatemalan Family of Four–I Belong

Rate this video to give it more exposure on YouTube! The Cowens of central CT need your prayers and help in adopting a family of four boys from Guatemala. They are in a time crunch because the oldest boy must be adopted by May 15, 2009 or he will become unadoptable by US law. Set to Kathryn Scott’s song, “I Belong”, this video tells their story and asks for your prayers and if you can, your donations. Donations can be made through their home church, Crossroads Community Church of Vernon, CT at 860-872-1154 or . Please forward this to all your friends!

    The prayers of the faithful and generosity of everyone will be the wind in the sails of this process. Plant your seed into this family, and watch love grow, to the glory of God! YEAH!

    Hola familia cowen, de nuestra parte a demás de orar por el proceso, esperamos poder ayudarles con el mejor cuidado a sus hijos en el hogar, poner todo el empeño y esfuerzo para que ellos lleguen a USA siendo hombres de Dios, hombres íntegros, que lleven el mensaje de Cristo en sus mentes, y sean en el futuro la mejor esperanza para los que le rodeen.

    God bless you all. This is truly a great cause, and seeing how hard it is for orphans over 18 to survive in India is a very hard thing. I pray and know that this will all work out in the name of Jesus. May God will be glorified through it all.

    Praying for and with you all. This is truly a great cause, and especially after living in India for a year and seeing how hard it is for orphans over 5 to be adopted, and also for orphans over the age of 18 to make their way in their home countries. I pray that God blesses you abundantly, and know that it will all work out in the name of Jesus.

    Wow Vicki! What a small world. Thank you for the prayers (EVERYONE)!

    Having a cousin working with these boys and many others, it would seem to be a no-brainer to me to make sure these children go to a warm, loving family. Why do the wheels of any government stop this from happening. I will never understand this. If there is a God in heaven, he’ll make sure this happens.

    We are still trying to pay our adoptions, we have done and so wish we could help financially – but I just said a prayer for you and your boys that they can come home soon!
    God Bless You All!
