For this birthday, my wish is for my friends to bless widows in Asia.

This past year I experienced India for the first time with my husband on a medical/dental trip. Widows and their children are especially on my heart because God has brought several widows into my life since moving to Arkansas. I can only imagine how the destitute widows in Asia suffer at even deeper levels due to the extra societal and economic pressures weighing down on them.

Please join me in passing along a gift (no amount is too small or too big!) to care for these precious ones as we live out James 1:27a, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..."

Honestly, I'd love to see us come together to raise as much as we can even if we exceed $500!

About Widows

Upon becoming a widow in South Asia, a woman is blamed for her husband's death and enters a life of shame. Burdened with the responsibility to care for her children alone, she is often forced into begging or even prostitution.

You donation will help GFA give widows a means of renewable income, like a sewing machine or farm animals. You'll also help with daily essentials, like blankets and water filters.

This support will be given through the local church, giving widows a chance to learn about the love of Jesus Christ.
