Christmas EVERY day!

A new year has come, the holiday decorations have been packed away for another year and the house has been cleaned up and put back in order.

But Christmas is still here. That's my New Year's Resolution. I said I wasn't going to have resolutions this year but I've changed my mind. I want to live with those feelings of celebrating my Savior and being generous and giving all year because I truly believe that's how God calls us to live- not just at Christmas time.

Jesus is everyday and should be celebrated and loved and shared every single day of the year! Why pack Him away with the holiday decorations? This year I'm not and I hope you'll join me in this effort.

My heart has been moved for the people of Asia- India specifically. My heart aches for the people there and I'm even praying about going there someday on a mission trip. A friend of mine is married to a pastor who goes to India every year so maybe I'll be able to join his team someday. What a blessing that would be! Join me in prayer for this if you will. But until the time when God paves the way, I want to do what I can from here.

So I've joined with Gospel For Asia to raise funds for Asian families in need. 100%- let me repeat that because so few charities do this- 100% of the funds you send go to their intended purpose. Those funds are not used for overhead or to line someone's pockets! How fantastic is that! 100%

That's why I've chosen Gospel for Asia because I wanted me donated dollars to count- every single one of them!

Please join me here: Christmas EVERY Day to raise money to send the word of God to Asia. And not just the word of God (that's the most important part) but things these wonderful people need to rise up out of poverty and reach out to others in their community. Things like water filters to clean the water they drink. Livestock- water buffalo, sheep, chickens, goats- that they can raise and harvest for cheese, eggs, milk, and meat to feed their families as well as to sell for income. It's a hand up, not a hand out! Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime. What an amazing program! Please join with me in this goal. Send Jesus to Asia!
