“Just know this: What you will do among children is as close to the heart of God and central to his kingdom as anything we could mention.” Wess Stafford, Too Small To Ignore: Why Children Are The Next Big Thing
We did it
You guys–WE did it!
Thank you to everyone who shared my post yesterday. You all blessed me in so many ways, I cannot even begin to describe the overwhelming joy and gratitude that I felt last night as I tried to go to sleep.
I am deeply humbled and blessed by your generous support and caring for this cause,and the children whose lives will be saved by the medical care they receive, thanks to YOU.
We are The Esther Generation:
“You’ve got to use the life you’ve been given to give others life. If your life isn’t about giving relief — you don’t get real life. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul?”
You have got to use your position inside the gate for those outside the gate – or you’re in the position of losing everything. There are a thousand ways to be the living dead.
If you have any food in your fridge, any clothes in your closet, any small roof, rented or owned, over your head, you are richer than 75% of the rest of the world. We are the Esthers living inside the palace.
If you have anything saved in the bank, any bills in your wallet, any spare change in a jar, you are one of the top 8% wealthiest people in the world. We are the Esther’s living inside the gate.
If you can read these words right now, you have a gift 3 billion people right now don’t, if your stomach isn’t twisted in hunger pangs, you have a gift that 1 billion people right now don’t, if you know Christ, you have a gift that untold millions right now don’t. We are the ones living inside the gate. …
You are where you are for such a time as this – not to gain anything — but to risk everything.
You are where you are for such a time as this — not to make an impression — but to make a difference. ~Ann Voskamp
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
(Philippians 1:3-7 Esv)
Don’t stop now–Let’s go!
