Why not want chicken chicken maybe it's not the get for your family but it is the perfect gift for poor family ninja chicken can break the cycle of poverty for poor family yes chicken chickens and provide nourishment for family and they can sell those exit the market for income when you donate a chicken or any other gospel for Asia one her percent of what you give goes to the field, and basketball went gospel fundraiser to support family and Jesus family this Christmas, give them six explanation see chickens and camping kids good morning Katie how you feeling good morning.

I'm telling great joy in a little bit different than people. I'm 77 and I have adopted three-year-old pending for three years necessary a grandchild or something a great-grandchild you adopted your great-grandchild mine and what that was a story behind that parent mother with my granddaughter beautiful girl and not got caught up into God, or into a a woman, to get her off the God got her out.

She met this guy in church who was a druggie and even some that and next. Now there together and they can now nobody knows where she sat. After they click the chat children away. My daughter had the girl and I had a little boy and I feel like got gaping back to me. I look a lot when abortion started out with Mary and the children had an abortion got gaping back show me what little guy and I know one day I will make another child and now I'm a nurse waiting to get a job in my care lady young girl that one portion is extraordinary 77 years old to go to your pretty ambitious take about a three-year-old, then you're going back to work as a nurse.

Who are some cut a 77-year-old virgin kids as I want to know. I wonder what's in the water and cases that you got the kind of strength that is was no let me ask you a logistical will okay will live yes you logistical questions yet. What's the plan for this child something happens to you because it's 77. You know you I hope you live to be 107 but was the plan for this job with my daughter matter I got I didn't want to get the little girl and I didn't want to be had different names you have been able to survive turning that cost me money and daycare. He learned about God having a Christian daycare and the kids and what you don't have the money and he can command and that meant that Gabriel I think gay. I am not on paper. I am your mother and I will always see your mother and go. You can call me mommy if you want. And now he can't will just keep in addition to assembly father does go to be a little bit weird because he goes to be with your daughter. That's his sister at his grandmother at the same to the right and that Celeste could get a little bit weird so you have to your family tree is going to require a look.

Maybe one of those dry erase boards that you have to do some creative writing on the family tree for Gable to gets a little older but I think you got time to figure out how to cut down at my daughter and I had been there with him and little different because she not daughter lasting that she not enhance you And Dilantin can't lengthen and bump in and talk to me to get down there to let them be together and that I've been there a couple times inside like a month or so and it is a little different. Gabriel cut it all the way down like and everybody that he they can't believe he finally triggers out.

I think the he had been the last day marking every when I talk that they look at me to how to write. I can't believe it.

I think it five or six will that regardless of how this works out.

I think you guys have done something extraordinary in the midst of a very, very, very complex set of circumstances and drugs get involved.

It screws everything up just truly does the family has to cut off pinch it the best that you can you done this in God also promises that he will restore with the Locust of Eden and that's what he's done with your situation with your abortion many years ago and that is provided a promissory note of how he is going to redeem even that is this what he does. God reaches into the most horrific things and pulls out redemption in ways we just can even process this Gabriel is a promissory note to an ultimate redemption, the God will do when you're in his presence. And you guys are done the best that you can with it with that with a very very complex set of circumstances. So as long as you keep it, introducing him to his heavenly father. Then regardless of what happens with this biological mother, grandmother anybody else did.

As long as he is anchored in his heavenly father reasonably okay yeah sounds like this. I suspect that's what you're doing yet, I will take five been taking that teenagers like taking an think that uncle. Matching got a family that loves Katie's got you got a lot of family around it that really wants to hug and love on the skidded and care for minutes it. It's a family thing were to take the skidded and we know this one your granddaughter evidently just really got messed up with drugs and the rest family seems to step it.

I got up a buddy of mine who did that with his nieces twins and he's done that and taking care of of her sons and adopted Moses as his own and so when you get drugs involved in this, one of the reasons we had the addict alcoholic component of care for your giving into this show because we understand what it does to the family and you been functioning as a family caregiver here your 77 years old.

When you go to start work as a nursing program with counseling. I am waiting for that they're very very letter not that my caning take the reference reference reference letters reference letter. I never had that I was a hot nurse and never had that before were late and they had to fill them all out and lastly just got info. I'm waiting on that before I counsel of my life where people and not interview me there and I'm really excited about.

I think this is what God wants me to do because I've been praying got.

I need to do something because they didn't take care all day and I'm just here to half and thank God I am very healthy have never had any heart attacks.

Nothing. How would you be working at this thing I told him I know I probably just work out at About three days a week.

I want to go into the band and go and do the ultrasound and young women was Elder Whitman about God and tell him what I have gone through with it and that how God can forgive him and he will forget that if they look at less than an keep it baby me murder and don't murder your child and that when you do this when you go before this committee and you have to talk to you and you have to cut us, make your case and why your person for this believe that you will be going to call you to be matter-of-fact, you will be some emotion without think you can do any of this without deep feelings of emotion, but at the same time you you sound so very anchored in the redemptive work of Christ in this and so when you face these folks and do this will just continue to pray this network will of the people to listen. Right now you're on the front lot you're going into something that is incredibly painful and incredibly divisive in this country and in any here you are doing this at 77 years old, so I want to give it a little bit encouragement. All you 77-year-olds out there. Here's K of their she's taken on a toddler in the abortion industry and so you know what you thought about a mighty warrior of God K. A review ability.

Have you ever struggled to trust God when lousy things happen to you.

I'm Gracie Rosenberger in 1983 I experienced a horrific car accident leading 80 surgeries in both legs and became I questioned why God allowed something so brutal to happen to me.

But over time, my questions changed and I discovered courage to trust God that understanding along with an appreciation for quality prosthetic limbs led me to establish standing with help more than a dozen years we been working with the government of Ghana and West Africa, equipping and training local workers to build and maintain quality prosthetic limbs for their own people on a regular basis. We purchased ship equipment and supplies and with the help of inmates in a Tennessee prison.

We also recycle parts from donated lambs.

All of this is to point others to Christ.
