Here’s this week’s Real News of Inspiration

From Lancaster Online’s David O’Conner

What would you do if doctors told you that your baby would not live much past birth?  Mark and Kristin Cote, of Millersville prayed that their unborn child would be a servant.  When she was born, Victoria Grace only lived 6 days, but her legacy has become much more than her fragile little body’s birth defect.  Mark, while on a missions trip to Peru saw that children were dying due to lack of easily accessible medicines and knew how to continue his dear daughter’s legacy.  The family set up a fund and ministry called Victoria’s Little Lambs.  In its first 6 months the ministry helped 60 children.  Since then the ministry has also expanded to Ethiopia and helps approximately 45 children a month.  The Cote family recently visited Peru and was amazed at how many children were being helped by Victoria’s Little Lambs.  Mark Cote commented, “One thing we continually marvel at is, now that she’s gone, how her legacy is impacting the nations, even one so far away and seemingly so different than the U.S.  And that’s a lesson of how God can fully use a servant who belongs to him.”  For more information or to donate you can contact Zion Church of Millersville, 317 N. George St. Millersville, PA 17551.

    I have a friend who just found out their child will either be stillborn or pass away very shortly after he is born. I copy and pasted this blog to them to give them some solice and hope. I pray for Mark and Kristin that they continue to have peace and comfort through their mission.
