Growing a Heart for GOD!
* Giving is a Privilege (2 Corinthians 8:4) Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.)
*Jesus set an excellent example of giving (2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, that. though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
*Give generously, and you will reap generously (2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
*You are free to decide how much to give (2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
*Cheerful giver " "
*Trust God to Supply your needs (2 Corinthians 9:10:11 ) Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and muliply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness: Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgivings unto God.
This is where we need YOUR help; please pray for these kids who have a desire to see souls saved and reached for Christ. I am going to tell you that while it does'nt look like alot of funds above....it is for the people here and especially a child who is giving on faith. They all know that they have to work for it and they are good about asking for a job. We want them to continue to have a heart for God and serve HIM. We know that HE will provide the funds to make this happen.
We want to challenge you all and your families to give to missions. The children here have seen the need for giving and they know that they are living proof of that giving with a new home and opportunity. It is so important for all to understand the importance of giving and giving sacrificially just like in the story of the widow's mites.
On another note it is one of the sweetest things to see that even David a 6 year old wants to make a pledge to missions. Thank you for those who pray for us and the kids....we can see a change in their lives and we pray that God will continue to grow in their hearts and lives.
