About Rob

Welcome to my blog! Who am I? My name is Rob, I am 22 and from Dublin, Ireland. I'm in my final year at Trinity College, Dublin.

I have been to China 5 times now and this summer will be embarking on my 6th trip this summer! Why? Well read the verse above - once my eyes are open to the fact that there are countless (TOO many) orphans, I CAN'T forget what I've seen and experienced. I'm a Christian and believe that this is what God has called me to do.

What do I do there? Well I've done a big variety of different things and had the opportunity to help with a variety of different programs, all orphan care related. I've helped with summer camps for orphans, visited government orphanages and helped at NGO foster homes for orphans with special and medical needs.

  1. Hi Rob! Lorna here. This blog is, truly, amazing. Firstly, what an epic name and Proverb! It is so exciting to see all the things you have done - they are all the things I one day hope to do. I can only pray that God has "humanitarian aid + other countries" (hopefully China, please) in His plan for me! And I aspire to one day having nearly half the amazing things on my blog as you do on yours - mine is currently a very boring advocate for my life's ambition. I'd better get editing... XD

  2. Hi Rob,
    I just came upon your blog via the advocacy thread on RQ. We are in the process of adopting a little girl with SN from China- we will be traveling in June or July. We can't wait to bring her home!
    I wanted to encourage you in your obedience and trust in Jesus as you give of yourself to bless those who are very dear to the heart of God. Thank you for what you are doing- your willingness to give of yourself and your time and your heart. I am so impressed with young people like you who truly understand what it means to put the needs of others before their own. Way to go- I'm cheering for you, along with all of heaven.
    I, too, hope that dear Matthew, finds a family soon. He seems like a wonderful young man- and very deserving of a family.
    Blessing to you, Rob.
