Did you know that I am going to run the marathon for clean water? You can read down a few posts to hear the story.
Yesterday a friend of mine kind of tilted her head - when I said 'what?' (because people usually have some opinion about how I give too much) she said asked why I didn't do something for people here. How come people don't adopt from here?
I simply said, 'don't drink water (or any other beverage) for a week or add dirt to your water while you drink it'. I am well aware that there is need here. And I try to help here too. And I don't mean to be a jerk, but I was listening to the commercial for Charity Motors (which is a great charity) and they were talking about people who need cars. Please note, you don't NEED a car, it is a great blessing, and may be necessity for you to get to work and we could go 'round and 'round about how you gonna get to work without one... But you don't NEED one to live, you NEED water.
Our goal: $4000 enough money to get a well for some beautiful Africans. Please see BloodWaterMission
I'm going to go open a bank account just for this very purpose. I'm personally going to get money direct deposited to it. People NEED water, and I feel called to raise money and run for it.
When Jesus saved my life, when He touched my heart, when His blessings are over flowing, its hard to sit and do nothing. Even the littlest things matter, to someone.
Thank You Lord for saving me. Thank You for being born on a cold winter's night so that we may have life, thank You for your never ending blessings. Thank You for sacrificing Your life, for mine.
Matt 25:31-40 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
