Message

In bedtime's tossing thoughts, I lay awake, suddenly struck by a beauty I've been too dulled by familiarity to appreciate during daytime distraction. "God has a heart for orphans and widows," dropped into my mind's focus. "His eyes never stop watching them; His heart never grows cold. He literally takes up their cause for them, as though it were His own."
Breath-taking.

Every night, I pull back three layers of beautiful, soft, embroidered blankets, covering an extra padded mattress. With my God-fearing, superman father and selfless, godly mother sleeping soundly in the room two doors down, no fear of evil men stealing me in the night even mentions itself to me. Even when opened, my bedroom windows only usher in peaceful lullabies of golf course sprinklers and crickets. All of these blessings are purely of God's grace. I could easily have been born as one of the 197,000 children in India, rejected and abused, raised only by poisonous bottles, train tracks, and sex-traffickers.

If His eye is upon them -- their blows His wounds, their hungers His pangs, their cries His constant jeremiad -- then I cannot recline callously, while my Father's heart breaks.

Jesus said "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." (Matthew 25:40) I hope to be moved to a heart of compassion for these little beloved people, as though it was Jesus Himself laid out on those tracks.

By October 7th, 2013, by the grace, leading and provision of God, my goal is to have raised $1,000 for this cause -- rescuing a total of 5 street children, solely by the power and love of His incredible Spirit. My Abba who adopted me wants to adopt these little guys too. Please pray for the children of Asia's streets, and if Papa God so tugs your heart to add any amount (no number is too small!), I'll be glad for the partnership!

Street Children

Give a safe haven for vulnerable children

Many cities in Asia are rife with children who live alone on the streets. These children are vulnerable to kidnappers who sell them into bonded labor and the sex trade. Those who avoid kidnappers fall into gangs, drugs, and alcoholism. They know only distrust and pain; every day is a struggle to survive.

Your donation supports the ministry of GFA's street children homes. These homes provide the children with shelter, education, and food, as well as a message of Christ’s love.

You can change these little lives forever.

I stumbled across your blog tonight. You are an exceptional writer. Thank you for the refreshing reminder that "we know a guy" who is a sovereign loving father, who wants the best of us and for us. That even when we feel "shelved" by Him or are guilty of an "ungrateful attitude" due to our own selfish unfulfilled desires for this life, that our God does not abandon us to "sit in the sand" and waste away, but instead is always with us completing the work he began. It was a blessing to pause for a moment, reflect on that simple truth and gain some additional gratitude and reverence for God. I look forward to more of your blog posts. As for this rescue, I normally don't fund things I know very little about. However, I can see it is something you are passionate about and from your writings I know your heart is in a Godly place, so it is a privilege to invest in your vision.
