My name is Ashton. I am 15 years old. I serve an AMAZING God. Who has forever changed my life. He makes me who I am and I live to become more like him.
As our adoptions have proceeded and as I have gotten older I have realized how much I love him and NEED him. He has forever changed my life and my heart through Adoption. My parents adopted Two little ones from China. A little girl, Anna Grace in 2007 and a little boy, Andrew "JianHui" in 2010. I have learned to love in totally new ways through these precious treasures.
I have lived in the same town my entire life. I love it. I have 4 siblings, AnnaGrace and Andrew and two Biological brothers, Adam (11) and Hayne (8) I adore them and they are tons of fun.
Recently God has placed on my heart Africa. It is not something that I was expecting but I am SO blessed to be a part of this crazy journey I am on. I want to please him most of all in everything I do. He is my maker and I live to please him. At the age of 15 I feel called to Africa. Not many 15 year olds want to mission. Many are off dreaming of celebrities and marrying rich and becoming famous...My dream? First, to please God. But also to share Jesus in the slums of Africa. To adopt as many children as God will allow and to live my life to the fullest pleasing Him. I am in love with China also. They blessed me with my first loves and it planted the seed in my heart for orphans. I have become passionate about it. I love China as much as Africa and hope to one day go back. It is a second home to me. (:Outside of Orphans, Adoption, China, and Africa. I am a normal 15 year old. I love music, volleyball, singing, guitar, and many other things. My friends are my other life. I love to be with them. Hang out, swim, see movies, doing anything that is fun!
I love my family and enjoy being with them! They are the best in my opinion! I am ever so blessed! I also am Best Friends with the creator of the Universe! Life is Good!
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this; To look after Orphans and Widows in their distress and keep oneself from being polluted by the World
