Think Again....

You think what we do for the Least of These doesn't matter??

Think again...

READ THIS AND THINK AGAIN...

A mom who is unable to adopt at this time has a blog.  She uses that blog to advocate for the Reece's Rainbow kids.  It doesn't have a huge following. It isn't a major blog at all.  But she is faithful.  She shares her heart.  She shares about the kids.  She prays.  She has the blog linked to her e-mail address so every single time she sends an e-mail... she is also sending a connection to her blog.

So one day... just recently... she sends an e-mail to a friend.  Not about adopting.  Not about RR kids. It was about homeschooling.  Homeschooling. Just an e-mail with some information about homeschooling.  That friend forwarded the information to another friend.  THAT FRIEND read the e-mail AND HAPPENED TO NOTICE THE LINK AT THE BOTTOM.

She clicked the link.

She was confronted with the plight of the orphans in Eastern Europe and Asia. 

Her heart broke.  She and her daughter sat and scrolled through picture after picture.  Their hearts broken.  The Holy Spirit whispering to them as they looked.  When her husband came home they showed him what broke their hearts and his too broke.

They are now working on their homestudy and are going to commit to TWO REECE'S RAINBOW CHILDREN.  Two kids.  

Two.

Because a mom was faithful.

Because God uses whatever we offer for HIS GLORY AND HIS PURPOSE.

I know this story to be true.

I met this family today at the Richmond Buddy Walk.

I saw the children they are going to adopt.

They are just starting the process so I can't share who they are but I am rejoicing with them as they walk this road.

You think what you do doesn't matter?  You think you have too small of a blog or too few friends on Facebook to make a difference?  You think you are too meek or too insignificant for God to use?

So did my friend Gwen and look what God did through her.

Two orphans will be coming home because she was faithful in the small things.

What you do matters to these babes.  It matters to Tara and Veronika.  It matters to Orion who spends his days laying in a crib.  It matters to James and Andrius.  It matters to Dawn and Angelina. It matters to Michael.  It matters to Kai and Asher.  

WHAT YOU DO MATTERS.

YOU JUST HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO MAKE IT MATTER!

Do whatever you can to be a voice to these kids and all the others.

Right now you can VOTE so that the ten children listed here will each receive 5,000 in their grant account.



You can select a child off the Angel Tree and help raise awareness and grant money for your child during the Christmas season.




You can share the kids on Facebook.

You can blog about them.

You can help the families get them home.

You can donate items for a Giveaway or an auction.

You can share about them in church and in your social groups.

You  can pray.  Above all - you can pray!!

WHAT YOU DO MATTERS.

You just have to do something to make it matter.

So please...

DO SOMETHING!!

And here's an easy way to start....

  3. Thank you, Julia! I am humbled that God chose a tiny mustard seed of a link to plant a big blessing.

    To Stephanie -- I am totally not a techno person (though I am married to one!), but usually in email account settings, there is an option for a Signature. You can put anything you want there, and many people put contact info, work titles, inspirational quotations, etc. My signature has my name, email, and the text that follows: Blogging for orphans and others at gatherfromnations.blogspot.com
    (BTW, if you click on my blog, you will notice that I have neglected it for months. I usually only blog during Christmas Warrior season, November through January, with a few posts here an there.)
