Haiti Orphans Meet Their New Parents

Our brother-in-law Joe works for Missionary Flights International, an air-support mission for ministries in Haiti as well as other areas of the Caribbean. MFI was priveleged to be a part of bringing 26 orphans out of Haiti to meet their new parents.

Adoption is a beautiful picture of the gospel:

"And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies." Romans 8:23

"In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,  to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:5

Get your box of Kleenex and watch these beautiful children as they join their new families...

  1. Thank you for emailing this on to me. I really enjoyed watching it (like three times), and passed it on to many. What a great encouragement of how God is still working, even in the tragedy.
