Chuck was admitted to Show Hope’s Xinyang Special Care Center in 2010 when he was just a month old. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus as well as blindness in his right eye. For the past three years, he has received life-giving medical care and love from his nannies and nurses there.
Chuck is a clever and fun-loving little boy who is known for his quick slipper-snatching skills! He loves to search for unattended slippers; once he spots one, he’ll quickly crawl over and hold onto it tightly! In addition to keeping the “streets clean” of stray slippers, Chuck also loves to hear his nurse or nanny say his name – especially when it is repeated over and over! Whenever he hears it, he smiles big and kicks his feet back and forth in pure excitement! Each day, Chuck lives life to the fullest, and as his nurse Krishtel says, “He is an adorable boy with a big, beautiful smile!”
Please pray that Chuck will continue to thrive and grow under the care of the Xinyang Special Care Center. Pray also that he might know the love and permanency of a forever family of his own. He is such a strong little boy and we are so thankful for his progress over these past three years.
+Lord, we pray that you will grant safety in travel during Andrew Peterson’s “Behold the Lamb of God” tour. Use this tool to mobilize your children on behalf of the fatherless through the work of Show Hope. May this tour reach and inspire new advocates in the movement to care for orphans.
+Father to the fatherless, please provide tender care and love for all children with terminal illnesses. Grant them hope and peace during their earthly journey. Father, it is hard for us to understand, but we know your hand is at work – even in their tender youth. Help us to trust in your perfect ways.
+Lord over all, may your presence encourage more “Gifts of Hope” during this holiday season, so that many more waiting children will know the love and protection of a family through adoption. As 2013 comes to an end, help us raise the funds we need to restore hope to orphans in distress.
+We pray that your hand, Lord, will be at work in the hearts of all who are applying for the 2014 Show Hope trips. Grant each person applying wisdom and clarity in your calling.
+Father of all mercy, provide peace and rest to all waiting children this Christmas. May they experience your eternal joy and know your unconditional love. We pray that you will fill our hearts with hope during this holy season.
