    Asking God to bring Charlie home for Christmas and you all can be together as one great family. Thank you for reminding us what our Heavenly Father did for us in His love for us.

    Faith without works is dead. God will bless the faithful who step out on faith for God. He will bless you for sure. I love you all and I am praying for you.

    Wow. Can’t tell you how much I appreciate this. You don’t know me, but we sit in a very similar place. I am a pastor and one of my elders is sitting in that same room with Ryan right now (not figuratively, literally), fighting for two little boys. He missed the birth of his daughter, his first child to be with them. I know the Summit is fighting for Ryan and Charlie, we have three that we are fighting for right along side you. We’re all in this together.

    I wanted to ask before I just put this out there, but would it be okay for me to share this with our church members? I can’t help but think that your words will strike a deep place with so many that were once orphans but are now crying out on behalf of these that we have come to love halfway across the world.

      Tony, thank you for the very kind words. Yes, please feel free to share this in any way that would be helpful. Ryan has proofed the post for anything pertinent to the sensitivity of their situation. I’m praying for your elder and his family right now!

    Hi Tony,
    I’m a reporter with ABC11 and we have received an email about the family’s situation. I’m trying to get in contact with them about doing a story today. Can you help make the connection? My email is heather.waliga@abc.com and my cell is 919-407-1456. Thank you!

      Heather, I’m sorry I’m just replying to this. I’ve been out of town. My understanding from Morgan is that they have been in contact with someone from ABC11 about a potential story. Thank you for your interest in them!
