Sacrifice

I’ve shared Lifesong with you before. They are all about helping families adopt as well as providing the best care they can to orphans around the world.

Right now, Lifesong is inviting their faithful readers and supporters to step up and help in a time of need for Lifesong Liberia.

Liberia is located on the west coast of Africa, between Cote d’Ivorie and Sierra Leone. After 14 years of civil war, the country’s infrastructure was destroyed. A peace agreement was signed in 2003, though significant issues still remain. Currently, there is an unemployment rate of 80%.

 

Lifesong has partnered with The Master’s Home of Champions orphanage and is providing a loving and safe home to many destitute and abandoned children, some of whom are deaf. Bishop Emmanuel Jones and his wife, Ramona, are passionate about rescuing and caring for such children. They seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and are focused on the goal of raising up champions for the good of Liberia and glory of God.

This summer, another orphanage was in dire need, and  thanks to an unexpected donation (story here) Lifesong was able to be there.  Praise the Lord we can help more children!  But now, they need help too!  They need your help to make sure these children are fed every day!  They need your help to care for the fatherless!  Will you join us?

70 sponsors in one week is a tall order, but we serve a big God who has told us that caring for the poor and vulnerable is at the very heart of who He is! 

Lifesong’s goal is 70 people.  $28 a month.  1 year commitment. Contact them at info@lifesongfororphans.org to commit!

Join us in bringing joy and purpose to orphans!

Quita’s Story:

Quita is 5 years old.  During the disarmament time, rebels came to her village and took all the men, including her father.  She never saw her father again.  Later it was discovered that these men were taken to a bridge where they were shot and thrown into the river.

Her mother ran to the Salala district with the other villagers for refuge.   There she later got sick and became paralyzed.  Last year Quita’s mother died and Quita was taken to the Lifesong Liberia’s Home of Champions.  When she grows up she wants to be a medical doctor and help children.

Isn’t it amazing that at 5 years old she’s thinking about how someday she can help other children?

How can you help children today?

$28 a month for one year.

Twenty-eight dollars…

- eating out at that new restaurant

- the shirt you’ve had your eye on

- a date night to the movies

- those pillows that would just look sooo good on your sofa.

This will require a certain amount of sacrifice.  But trust me.  The sacrifice is always worth the reward.

What can you sacrifice for a child like Quita?

The goal is 70 people.  $28 a month.  One year commitment.

They only need 28 more!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
