Time for CHANGE

I’ll bet you don’t know how wealthy you are. How wealthy am I you say? If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. Tagging on a recent donation from a small church, I’m challenging us all to collect up the loose change at the end of the day from pockets/purses and dressers and put it in a jar with this picture on it during the month of February, the LOVE month. You have the rest of January to spend your current change and can spend whatever change you have every day. But at the end of the day, what wasn’t spent goes in the jar. What a great activity to do with your office, home group, team, family or solo. But every time you look at the picture, be reminded how fortunate you are to be able to make such a huge difference in the lives of others. Please check out my archives for more details on my partnership with World Hope International to raise funds for drilling 10 deep water wells. We have just started #7. PLEASE reply to this post if you are in and PLEASE forward it. February starts soon and a child dying every 20 seconds is not acceptable. Lives are lost if we the wealthy do nothing. I’m excited to see what kind of “change” we have at the end of the month.
God has blessed you

Doing a Happy Dance!!!

I have received word from my church that the Missions Committee has unanimously decided to complete the funding for well #6 with a $900 donation. I am delighted on multiple fronts.

First of all knowing that before long another village will have life giving water instead of the illness and death inducing contaminated water they now have. Children can go to school where they belong and mothers won’t spend hours of their day trekking for water. Bigger gardens can be planted, better diets, produce sold, money available for much needed improvements.

Secondly it means a lot to me to have my church behind me in a tangible way.

Thirdly, it is very encouraging to me to have this well completed and not hovering on the verge of completion with the holiday giving season now behind.

My commitment is still for 10 wells. We are over the halfway point and that is another reason to celebrate. Looking into the future, I remind myself that the timing is still the Lord’s, but using what creativity he has given me I press on. I would love to hear from any of you about fund raising ideas you have heard of or participated in. We each have our own gifts and our own sphere of influence. Is there something you would host if you knew you were saving someone’s life?

Feeling blessed
