MEET Angelina "LINA" Mariana Carpenter...
Sister to Sasha, Ellianna and Avigayil....
Our daughter is still in her orphanage and needs to come home quickly! She just turned 5 years old and is about half the size of our Avi (Tin Tin) and about half of her weight! She is older than AVI by 4 months! Posting a photo or photos within days so keep watch...also will work on making this blog more exciting to view for those of you that are super amazing at creating blogs! I obviously don't have too much talent in this area!! Although I plan to work on it!
We are blessed to be the parents of this precious and tiny 5 year old little girl that desperately needs her Mommy and Daddy!
We are working on all kinds of fundraisers that we hope to continue long after Lina is home! As you probably know caring for the orphans is our HEARTBEAT...our PASSION and OUR LIVES...especially those with needs that the world calls special! These precious girls are the most amazing gifts the LORD could ever have blessed us with and we are humbled and catch glimpses of the LORD HIMself daily through these girls!
Spaghetti for LINA...date to be announced as soon as we get a date that works with the church and our schedule...Brian is the Master Chef of spaghetti so plan on coming and plan on having lots to eat and lots of awesome fellowship...Early December date is being planned!
Online Auction...LIBERATE LINA...coming very soon and we are looking for items that anyone wants to donate and any gift cards that anyone can secure! I will be posting a link to some amazing friends that are helping...actually doing the whole auction for LINA because I would be so clueless...remember I am the one with the blog that has no music and no pictures!!! Ha ha!! I will put a link on here as soon as I have the link to give you!
ART for ORPHANS - working on this right NOW and will have some photos of the framed artwork to display and to sell for Liberating LINA! Do you know an Art gallery that might want to display artwork by Ellianna Ya-Ting Carpenter...she has a great story to tell Psalm 68:6! I MEAN a really great story to tell! She has her big sister's story to tell of her liberation from Russia...her story to tell of her liberation from Taiwan...her little sister Tin Tin's story to tell of her liberation from the Philippines and now a current day, play by play story to tell of LIBERATE LINA!
The T-shirt PROJECT - coming soon....

"CANNED" you liberate LINA - selling right now...the most amazing yummy and made with love...canned peaches, pears (size - 2 quart) and Chow Chow!!!!

Hey just buy a CAN and then you will know what it is!

Praising the LORD for his Hand upon our lives today! Proverbs 31:8-9
"Speak up for those that can not speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are desitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy."
So much more to share about all the Lord is doing for LINA and other little ones the LORD is placing in homes! The stories of how He is connecting one family to another just amazes me! I will have to share more of the stories and may the LORD be glorified!
