Since I have been home my mind is going 90 miles an hour. It's so hard going there and seeing so many needs and not have a way to meet them. All through the bible God used many people to help others. Combining the works of others has been his example.
I know I have brought this to your attention before but I am doing it again. I need you to understand the importance of this and how bad it is needed.
I can continue doing what I am doing at a very slow pace or you can help me speed up this process. I came home with a sense of urgency. Time is running out for these people. God is coming back and it won't be life times away like it was for your ancestors.
Here's what I need.
I need churches, Sunday School classes, Youth Groups, Homeschool Groups, Boyscott Groups, Girl Scout Groups, Womens Ministries, if it's a group of people I need them.
If I had 12 groups that would be willing to do a yard sale, bake sale, a monthly donation, a yearly donation, something. It would make a huge difference.
There are so many churches that are not doing anything right now for missions because they feel they are too small but that is a lie from the devil. God can do anything with the willing.
Soon I will be collecting things for a summer trip or two and will need simple things like toothpaste and toothbrushes. We all go to the dentist. How many of you have ask your dentist for me sor far? Have you walked away and said, darn I forgot to ask for Angie again? I have been told by many of you that you are going to ask. So ASK... please. :)
There are so many little things we all can do to make a difference in someone's life if we are just willing to ask. Many doctors are willing to donate 10, 20 or even a 100 toothbrushes because they get them for free from vendors but if you don't ask them I can't get them. All they can do is say, No.
Are you in a homeschool group that needs a community service project? A teenager in Matthews did a collection at his basketball games and collect 2,000 pairs of new flip flops just because he was willing to hang a flyer and put out a collection box.
I know most are saying but the economy is so bad. If you feel it's so bad that you can't donate a $1 pack of toothbrushes from the Dollar Tree then where is your faith? In the economy or in God? Don't mean to be strong about this but the truth is the truth. Christians right now who are scared about their future are putting their faith in a J O B not in God. Our economy issues are no surprise to God. He is not shaken by this. Is He not the same God yesterday when you had money, today when you don't and tomorrow when you need some? My God is.. (I am not just someone sitting back with tons of money and can't related to others. We are struggling just like the rest of you if not more so I do understand where all of you are coming from).
Sorry didn't mean to get on a soap box but now is the time for us to shine. The time for us to show the world that the God who created the universe will NEVER LEAVE US OR FORSAKE US.
So I need your connections? If you trust me and believe in what I am doing then help me. Talk to your child's daycare who love teaching kids about doing great things. Talk to your pastor and ask if he would be willing to sit down with me and just hear how they can get involved. It's not just about money. (Although without money nothing happens)
Please consider what projects this year could your group do? I have several I am working on and will need support to accomplish them. You have already been a huge part of changing peoples lives and I am grateful for your support. Can you do a little more?
Pray, ask God is there any thing you can do. Although having help monthly would be wonderful, I'll take just one time. God knows the need. He will supply and lead you in how you can help if you ask Him.
Thanks for listening.. Thanks for Praying.. and Thanks for Helping me Help Others.
Forgive me if my strong words offends you. I just don't want any of your believing in your job's paycheck or your lack of job. I just want you to know how much God loves you an how we wants your faith in Him and not in the world.
