Blessed




Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift

2 Corinthians 9;10-15

 Approaching another busy holiday season, it is easy to get bombarded with charities, growing demands from family and the stresses of getting everything done in time.  The weeks go by quickly and the twinkle lights fade and it's cleaning up time, returning unwanted gifts and shedding those unwanted pounds from holiday excess begins.  

With so many things happening in the world, it is hard to think we can make difference anyways, why help now, what does it matter the problems are too big.  

Friend we can make a difference and significantly make an impact by being the hands and feet of Christ to a hurting world, one child at a time. These children matter to God and they should matter to us too! 
  
🍂Sponsor a child like Catherene 
from Kenya, whose birthday 
is on Thanksgiving, November 30. 




🍂Children thrive on just a little encouragement, but being a sponsor to a child speaks volumes to a child who feels hopeless and forgotten. 

Early marriage, hunger, child trafficking, disease from dirty water, child labor, no education and abandonment are just a few things children living in desperate poverty have to deal with everyday. 

Give hope to a child living in desperate poverty.  Sponsorship gives something that will last, God's kingdom, His children. Not just empty stuff that we really don't need. 


World Vision’s gift catalog is also a good way to change lives with animals that can go a long way to help whole families and communities and of course, a little girl like Catherene, :) (She still needs a sponsor, search for her under November 30th birthdays). 

🍂Matthew 25




This is one of my sponsor children (before)
Now
May your Christmas 
will be filled with blessings
 and enjoy your time with family,
friends and loved ones.



 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."
Matthew 25:44-45
                              

In everything give thanks ♡
