In the process of mulling over creative ways to raise funds, I find that I often feel like it's a burden or loathsome part of adoption that I'd rather not deal with. You know, if I could just snap my fingers and the money would magically appear, I'd chose to do it that way. A.K.A. the "easy way." But, as I was thinking about this whole thing one evening a thought came to my mind. If I'm willing to humbly tell others of this need, it gives them an opportunity to practice "true religion" and to be blessed for "taking care of an orphan in their distress." (James 1:27 - "Pure and faultless religion is this, to take care of orphans and widows in their distress and keep oneself from being polluted by the world." )
We have a daughter living on the other side of the world who is depending on her parents for help. Help to get home to her family and medical access. She owns nothing of her own. She is penniless and has no support system. But she does have a debt.
We are working on creative ways to raise the ransom money for our sweet red thread! (And I hope to let you know about some of those events SOON). We are also currently working on completing the necessary paperwork so that any financial donation given can be tax deductible receipt. (details coming )
Will you pray with us that our daughter's ransom will be paid in full when we're ready to board a plane to pick her up?
James 5:16b tells us that " the effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man, availeth much."
