JOHN 3:16 MARKETING NETWORK: CHILDREN OF DREAMS – REVISITING NEPAL TWENTY YEARS LATER,” and taking books to a church and orphans in Nepal, by Lorilyn Roberts

Spread the love

This inspirational work of nonfiction follows a woman who turns her own shattered dreams into life-changing hope, relying on God’s redemptive love to overcome impossible odds and adopt two destitute children from one of the world’s most remote regions.

I (Lorilyn Roberts) will be traveling to Nepal soon to take books to orphans – children who have been rescued and adopted into Nepali homes sponsored by Child Hope International.

For the next three weeks, I will be publishing on my blog my adoption memoir, to encourage you to pray for Joy and me, for travel mercies, and for you to “taste” the country and experience what I felt when I was there before. God gave me my first of two Children of Dreams twenty years ago. I arrived home from Nepal on Mother’s Day, May 8, 1994, with Manisha Hope.

The costs will be around $3,500 for Joy and me to travel and stay six days. Our time will be spent helping many of the kids with English and reading. About $1,500 has been donated so far. I am hoping more people will contribute toward the trip so I don’t have to spend the next several months paying off my credit card when I return. 

Imagine what the possibilities are with the two hundred plus Christian books we are taking (as well as two Kindles a member of the John 3:16 Marketing Network donated). These children are among the few, particularly the girls, to receive an education in Nepal. They are the future leaders, the future teachers, doctors, and nurses. Over two hundred abandoned children have been adopted in-country by Nepali families sponsored by Child Hope International. Today many are in college. One orphan sponsored by Child Hope International is now in medical school. 

I would especially appreciate your prayers. 

If you would enjoy reading Children of Dreams as an ebook, in celebration of the trip, I’m offering a free coupon through Smashwords for the length of time Joy and I will be in Nepal. Joy is my younger daughter who I adopted from Vietnam. Manisha, who is 23, will be staying home and taking care of all of our animals. 

From James 1:27:  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

    I just downloaded the book to my Kindle. I will hopefully get a check in the mail this week. You don't have to mail me a book, since I got it on my Kindle. Best wishes in your travels. I always wanted to go to Nepal, but with our nonprofit organization working in Kenya, I will probably only be making it back and forth to Africa for a while.

    Kenya has also been a place I've wanted to visit, ever since I saw the movie "Born Free." You never know what God has in store. Thanks, Kris, for your support:)
