Sarah Jacobsen and her sister have spent hours designing, drawing and coloring prints to sell for Lina.  They have hearts that are in tune with the LORD JESUS and have worked to produce these prints that they are selling for Lina!  Amazing...

Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. (New Living Translation) 1Timothy 4:12

I just used this verse to share about the Cedar Crest Girls' Volleyball team and how they have blessed our Lina!  Now I use it to share about the selfless gift of the Jacobsen girls!  Why do they have such a heart for Lina?

They have a brother - Jonathan - who was just adopted from and Eastern European Country!  They know the plight of the millions of orphans even at their young age...oh what the LORD can and will do with their lives!  Please take time to view their prints and if you would like to order a print please contact me at  All proceeds will go towards Lina's adoption fund!  I was in tears as I opened their package with the prints, a gift for Lina and their letter! They say in the letter "...I hope that they will be used for God's glory to bring her home soon!"  "I think about your family and Lina often and pray for you.   Thank you for allowing us to be a part of bringing Lina HOME!"  Wow...what more can I say!!

Ellianna Ya-Ting is still painting for Lina and other orphans - she was also baking this week!

Ellianna is still painting for her sister Lina!  There are 4 regular size prints ready to post/show/sell and also a double size print!  I LOVE THIS ONE!!!

The story behind the double print is day while painting and hanging up the paintings a little girl in Ellianna's pre-K saw the paintings hanging and said to me..."ahh who ripped that painting of Ellianna's?"  I looked at the two paintings hanging side by side and painted at different times.  I was like wow, that does look like it was ripped but I told the little girl that no one ripped it and it was two separate paintings - but they fit perfectly together!  So an idea was mat them as one painting!  Ellianna painted them to fit one another perfectly.  Just like she fits into my heart perfectly and her sisters fit into our hearts and LINA fits into our hearts and family perfectly! They were made to go together just like the Lord put our precious girls into our family and they fit perfectly! 

Ellianna also painted 5 more paintings on Thursday of last week that will be digitally photographed and then made into prints ready to hang! 

She is a busy little girl!  She is also baking!  See her love for baking...or licking the batter!  We actually baked her chocolate chip muffins and we ate them all!  She loves to eat them after she knows she has made them.  She rubs her tummy and will say MMM...

Ellianna's edibles will be sold at the spaghetti dinner for Lina being held this Saturday, December 10th from 3-7 pm
at the Lebanon Valley Church of the Nazarene.  If you would like more information please email

We will also be having baked goods by Angie Stoner and Alicia Redcay!  I also promise that I will be sure that Ellianna is taking "germ" precautions for any baked goods we sell as Ellianna's Edibles!!

Thursday, November 10, 2011


MAYBE today I will get the prints posted!  One print already sold before I even got it posted!  I have 13 prints of Ellianna's ready to show!  I just need to get them on here! 

The lighting is not so great today as it is cloudy and rainy - but maybe that will actually help to take away the glare that I have had trouble getting rid of on the prints when I photograph them!  I will try to get them on here TODAY!

Waiting for the fingerprinting letters from the USCIS for Lina's adoption - if they come today then a drive to the fingerprint center for our fingerprints for LINA's adoption will "trump" the day and the prints will have to wait for another day! 

BUT maybe today is the day I finally get them posted on ART for ORPHANS!

GET ready...Sure wish you could have seen the smile of sweet Ellianna when Uncle Robby was choosing which print he wanted to purchase!  She knows that she is artist and she is so very proud of her work!  Very much like the LORD to use a little girl who can not speak to be a "voice for the voiceless"!  If she can do it so can you!

I have 6 new prints I am now working on too!  She painted 2 new ones on Tuesday and I LOVE THEM!

Gotta post the photo of Ellianna painting too!  It was hard to take a photo because she knew that I was photographing her and she started to become a little actress and made getting a good photo difficult!  Maybe I will show some of the very goofy photos that were the norm of my photography session!

So till later...have a great day and may the LORD bless you today!

BE a voice for the Voiceless where ever you are today!

The Story - A Voice for the Voiceless Proverbs 31:8-9

ART for Orphans - The Story - part 2 (part 1 is still not written down but will be in the next few days)

A Voice for the Voiceless
Ellianna Ya-Ting
Proverbs 31:8-9

Ellianna was once an orphan.  She was alone and left to life in a crib in an orphanage in Taiwan.   She was born with multiple special needs and many complications at birth.  She is NO LONGER and Orphan but a daughter of the KING and also a very loved daughter of Brian and Stephanie.  She is the joy of their lives and the joy to all who meet her.  She has a smile that lights up a room and a love for life that we all should have.  Ellianna (6) has a sister named Sasha (14) who was born in Russia.  She has a sister name Avigayil (4) born in the Philippines.

Ellianna now has a sister that is waiting to come home (November 2011) in an Eastern European orphanage.  Her sister, Lina, is 5 years old and weighs only 11 pounds.  She needs to come home quickly due to her dire health issues.

Ellianna loves to paint and is painting to bring home her sister Lina.  Ellianna may not completely understand the whole story about Lina but she does understand that at every meal the whole family will hold Lina's photo and pray for Lina to knit to the Carpenter hearts and to come home soon.  The Carpenters prayed with the photo of each precious child that needed to come home and many miracles occurred in each adoption to bring each daughter home!

Ellianna is a precious child with many gifts and talents that are sometimes hidden from those that don't know her personally.  You see Ellianna is 6 years old and does not yet talk or walk independently due to her brain injury (cerebral palsy).  Ellianna is a gift from the LORD and she is using her love of painting to bless another little girl in a far away land.  One day soon her sister, Lina, will be home too and then Ellianna will use her painting to bless many more children!  That is our prayer and Ellianna's Dream!

Three of the paintings will be listed here in the next few days!  They are for sale and all proceeds will go to the fund to bring home her sister!

More paintings are being worked on as I write!  blessings to you all and may the LORD receive the glory!
