US kids helping US kidsRich Stigall
We’ve met some faithful churches who are willing to trade their “normal” for the “hard-work privilege” of caring for God’s kids. We love that! His Bride will continue to be the heartbeat of this ministry, but Jesus hasn’t stopped there. He is so creative! We love that about our Lord.
Last year Jesus brought together a dedicated foster mom, a handful of sixth graders, a few corporate sponsors and an organization dedicated to helping children solve problems to provide a voice for US Orphans.
More than 15,000 people at Odyssey of the Mind’s opening ceremonies in Michigan watched this 2-minute video. Hundreds responded, making more than 80 blankets by hand for foster care children.
More importantly, many people said they now want to reach out to foster children in their own communities. As Tammy Spears says in the video, “Not everyone can foster, but everyone can help.”
We give thanks to the One who can show us this truth in so many ways, and we smile when He chooses to show us through children helping children.
