Blessed in America, but what are we going to do about it...

We are so blessed here in America that I think it becomes so easy to turn a blind eye to the rest of the world that is hurting and dying. We get caught up in so many material things - what brand of jeans to get, what's the biggest house I can have, what is the newest and latest electronic craze that I can have? Jesus brought hope to ALL, not just those of us that were born here in America. It was not your choice to be born here just as it is not the choice of so many to be born in poverty and despair. God calls us as blessed Americans to help those in need. When God calls us home (and it is our prayer that you know Jesus as your personal Savior and that He will call you home to Heaven with Him) it isn't going to matter to Him how much we had or what car we drove - it is going to matter what we did for Him and for those lost and hurting in this world. As you read this, please consider what you can do for these little ones in need, whether it be in prayer, giving financially to sponsor a child, or going yourself to the mission field.
If you would like more information on how to sponsor a child or ways you can help, please let me know. Also, here is a link to GFA's website on sponsorship of a child through their Bridge of Hope program. Trust me, you'll be glad you did it - we sure are!!! (
