Please Donate

I am sorry that I have been away from the blog for almost a week. Our family was hit by the flu, and when I say hit I mean totally. wiped. us. out. We’re almost completely better now. It feels so good to be back to our normal routine even if our appetites haven’t quite come back to normal.
Make Way Partners
I’ve been catching up on my blog reading, and after reading the Make Way Partners blog I had to make a plea to you all. Last fall I wrote a post about how our family is supporting a child in the Sudan through the Make Way Partners organization. If you have been following the news, war has broken out again in the Sudan. Some of the supplies for the orphans have not been able to get through. We have been praying for God to open a way for these supplies and in the meantime that other supplies will be available for the orphans.
My heart was broken again for the people of Sudan as I read updates on the blog today. People are dying based on their ethnicity – many are children. Now Make Way Partners is organizing a way to get help even to those not directly involved in their orphanage. For $35 MWP will give one family a jerry can for collecting water, a tarp for emergency shelter, soap for sanitation and some basic food supplies. You can read the details here.
I would urge you to consider supporting one of these orphans on a monthly basis or making a one-time gift to Make Way Parters. We are so blessed here in North America. Please consider doing something for those who are in such dire need. I know times are tight for everyone, but maybe you could partner with one or two friends to send $35 to help a family. Any donation will be put to good use I’m sure.

    Good post – we need to remind ourselves and others of people in need. We actually just gave a donation to a young couple who are missionaries in PNG. It breaks my heart when I read their posts about all the baby deaths there and such. They are making some inroads with a clinic connected to the mission compound and teaching moms how to feed their babies properly and take care of them. It reminds me to be thankful for what we have here in North America!

  2. We have so much. It’s good to be shaken out of our complacency sometimes to look to the needs of others. It’s something I personally need to experience on a semi-regular basis. It cuts down on my complaining.
