I'm raising money to help the widows in Asia. Can you believe some of the women are widowed at the age of 12?!?

My plan is to get sponsors and donations for reciting verses I've memorized. I will try to do a total of at least 1,500 verses.

Would you be willing to pledge per verse, or make a donation to this cause of helping these widows in Asia?

I have recited:
Gen. 8:20-22; 15:5-6; Exodus 15:1-3; Num. 23:19; Deut. 31:6; Joshua 1:9; 1 Chron. 16:8-12; Job 6:14-21; Psalm 4:8; 9:1-4; 14:1-3; 19:1-4, 14; 51:17; 73:25-26, 28; 92:12-15; 110:1; 119:114; 127:1; Prov. 3:5-6; 4:18; 9:8-9; 11:2; 17:6; 24:29-34; 31:30; Isaiah 40:28-31; Jer. 4:4; Ez. 36:23-27; Matt 4:23-25; 6:25-34; 26:31-35, 39; Luke 9:23-26; John 1:1-4; 3:1-3; 3:16-19; Acts 2:25-28; 10:42-43; 20:18-24, 35; Romans 4:20-25; 8:26-28; 9:17; 1 Cor. 9:24-27; 2 Cor. 4:16; Gal. 1:11-17; Eph. 4:11-13; 5:15-21; 6:10-19; Phil. 1:27-30; 3:7-8; Col. 3:22-24; 1 Tim. 1:15-19; 2 Tim. 1:2-7; 3:16-17; Titus 1:1-3; 2:3-5; 3:4-7; Heb. 4:4-10; 2 Pet. 3:3-9; 2 John 1:2

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.

Emily, thank you for allowing us to purchase your Panera Bread gift card from you in exchange for a donation. I know you were looking forward to a meal at Panera's, and that it was a sacrifice to give it up. May the Lord bless you for your sacrifice. :-) Love, Mom (and Dad)

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
