As some of you may know and some of you may not, our family lived as missionaries in Kosovo for six years. Our boys were little and don't remember a whole lot. But, there was something that was planted in their hearts, even as little as they were. And, My heart was forever changed.
Living for others, and working to change their world, even a little, tiny bit, will do that to you.
Now, we live in an awesome home, we love our church family, the school we attend, our friends, and lives. But, once your heart has been changed there is no going back. You look at whatever you have, as little or as much as it is, you realize it's good, maybe REALLY good. And because of that heart change, you start looking for another world that could use some change.
That's where we are at.
Judah and I have the opportunity of going to the Watts area in L.A. to take V.B.S. (Vacation Bible School - just in case you needed your memory jogged!) to children that can be very much forgotten, even in their own homes. Low income families, drugs, gangs, violence, and fending for themselves are nothing new to them. I mean, it's here, in America. It's not Africa. It could kind of go unnoticed.
But, we are going to do something to possibly change their world. It might not be big, but it might be the one small thing that makes a difference.
So, we are going! So, we made some bracelets. : )
The cost for both of us to go is $150. We know that it is not a break the bank amount, but we felt like we should ask for God to provide for us to go. : ) SO. . . . will you help us go and change someone's world?
The boys and I have made these snazzy little bracelets (we have guy colors, too. I actually sold one already so I didn't have it for a picture!) If you would like to help us go to L.A. you can wear the proof of it : ) Even if you live far away from us, consider being a part. These little guys fit in the mail box REALLY easily!!!
Did I mention that all the cool kids are wearing them?
So, won't you consider helping us out? You can leave a comment here on my blog, or connect with me on facebook. Do it!
And, THANK YOU!!! By buying one of these YOU are helping change someone's world.
