God’s Provision (Global Food Crisis)

0512bf-340

I have some good news to share with you.  It’s a story about God’s provision. Many of you read about my hope that people would respond on Global Food Crisis day — that their hearts would open wide for the poor of the world–that through their giving, others might live.

I am humbled to report that so far (and the final count is not in) Compassion International has collected over 3 million dollars which will go directly into the Global Food Crisis Fund!

In addition, more than 2,000 children were sponsored. Of the 27,000 people who donated, more than 20,000 were new donors to Compassion.

God is amazing, is He not? He reminds us that He cares for the tiniest sparrow. How much more does He care for the hungry children of the world? To all of you who participated in this campaign, thank you – from the bottom of my heart. Each child in every third world country we serve —thanks you. They can know one more day where their belly will not have to rumble in hunger—and we have seen yet one more day that God works in miraculous ways.

Heavenly Father – thank you for your provision. Thank you for loving the tiniest sparrow and the smallest child. Thank you for loving the aged — the poor– the wealthy–thank you for loving all people of all nations. Thank you for inspiring us to give sacrifically to our brothers and sisters around the globe.

    Thanks so much, Dave!

  5. Hey! 🙂 Found your comment on parchment & pen to be beautiful and a wonderful testimony of His grace & love. I wholeheartedly agree with the tone and message of your comment. Thank you. I have many ex-mormon friends that we mentor/walk with and I too feel the same way… my job isn’t to condemn their whole past ideology/doctrine or family members still in those churches… but to love.. teach… point to GOd & the Word.

    Just as I held wrong assumptions from my childhood — they did too — but who was I to judge their heart? Truly, that is GOd’s ability, not mine. Isn’t it an amazing thing when we realize that God is big enough to handle our search for truth!? Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

    Thank you so much, Randi! God used that time in my life for an eternal impact. He knows what it takes to reach us. BTW – I grew up on the coast of NC! (Southern) I know it well. Also, are you on Theologica?

  7. Hey again! 🙂 We live in Leland, NC outside of Wilmington. Where did you grow up? I am not on theologica – what’s that about? 🙂

    This is way too funny. I grew up in Jacksonville! (Camp Lejeune). Theologica is a social networking site that is connected to parchment and pen. http://theologica.ning.com/ It’s a bit of fun if you like that kind of thing….

  9. wow that’s awesome!! I haven’t met a bloggie friend yet that was close geographically (or sort of close — since you grew up there – I assume you’re not there now) hahaha.will check out the site. though I have to admit, I am not theologian… I have a huge heart for God and am so passionate about Him & The Body — but am so lost on doctrine/theology most of the time.

    Have a great day! 🙂
