...pure religion

"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." - James 1:27
the verse above has been posted on this site because we would like it to become our mission statement - even more - our inspiration. if the purpose of these travels is to strive for pure and undefiled religion, then it seems like one way to do so would be to obey the verse. so, orphans are our main focus. we have arranged to volunteer in orphanages across asia (russia, china, nepal, india, thailand, philipines) and will be in each country for a month or so. we also would like to gain perspective on the people and places God created. we would like to be exposed to their lifestyle, beliefs and suffering. not only exposed, but try to begin to identify with those less fortunate and, God-willing, attempt to relieve that suffering - if only a little. some of you have contributed to this cause in the form of money given. your gift may bring a smile to a childs face when we give her the toy that money bought for her. or, it might pay for the malaria vaccine that will prolong a life just long enough for the gospel to be shared. however its used, it will be for the advancement of Gods kingdom, to which you have made a contribution. many of you have told us that you're praying for us. hearing that gives us an almost unshakable confidence, because we know that prayer according to Gods will is answered prayer. so continue to pray and continue to check this site for updates. we will do the best we can to add entries and, hopefully, pictures from now until april. if you would like to receive notifications when new updates are posted, please send us a message with your email address in it and we'll make it happen. thanks for logging on.
