Thanksgiving is just four days away and Christmas is peeking around the next corner. With the joy and excitement of the holidays I start to feel extra grateful. Grateful that I live in a country where I can achieve my goals and dreams, provide for my children, not go hungry. Really the fact that I am typing on a computer right now proves that I am blessed. Blessed to have been given so much by a God who loves and adores me.
Jesus took care of so many who needed him. I want to be His hands and feet and take care of others too. I am passionate about two organizations who are also His hands and feet. World Concern and Compassion International are wonderful organizations I want to share with you today. They both work to bring people out of poverty and provide essential needs for the least of these.
I learned about both organizations on K-Love, which is a Christian radio station. I donated to World Concern to provide immunizations and bought a water filtration system from Compassion. We now make it a Christmas tradition for Lauren to choose an animal to send to a family in need. I encourage you to support these organizations this holiday season and give a gift that is needed rather than wanted. Please join me in being His hands and feet. One person truly can make a difference.
