Dear Tony, George, & Cornell,
 
Thanks for caring enough about the people of Swaziland to join Phil & our team there – you made a difference. Statistics that just came out yesterday confirm that if we don’t do something, the nation will cease to exist. I’ve come to love the orphans there – thank you for caring for them
too.
 
Please don’t forget Swaziland – as you said, Tony, “Help is needed, we can’t let Swaziland disappear.”
                                                                                      Sincerely,       

                                                                                    Seth Barnes




Blog readers, please click here to watch the excellent NFL Network video. The following is from Elizabeth
Adcock’s blog

 
While we were in Swazi, some
NFL players came to visit!
 
One of the players was Anthony Hargrove of the New Orleans Saints, who had
just won the Superbowl only days before.  Talk about a crazy cultural
shift – from crowds who can’t get enough of you, to masses of kids who
are afraid of you!  The first glimpse I got of these guys made me burst
out in laughter; they were just so gigantic standing next to my Swazi
babies!  Each NFL player I met was so down-to-earth, and willing to
humble himself by fumbling through the Swazi cultural songs and dances. 
One of my favorite memories in Swazi was doing the hokie-pokie and the
harlem shake with the players and the kids.  So much fun!
 
A video was recently posted on the NFL website about their
trip to Swaziland.
  The little girl whose face
the camera centers on at the end is Ellie, who was abandoned as a premie
at the local hospital but was adopted by Julie, a missionary who has taught the gogos
(grandmas) to make purses

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
