FOOD FOR GOOD
James 1:27 (NLT)
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
I want you to meet the “Three Z’s”, three wonderful children who have been through a lot.
Their mom struggles with addiction, so their grandmother took them in to keep them out of the foster care system. She has returned to work to raise three children under the age of ten.
Many seniors have to choose between food and medicine. She has added three young children to feed, clothe, and educate. She is not the legal guardian so she cannot fall back on the government programs one would expect to help.
A few weekends ago the grandmother took the kids to see their mother, and after spending an entire Saturday in and out of run down hotels they never saw her. These babies want the same thing we all want for our kids. To be safe, to be fed, to have a roof over their heads, but most importantly to be loved.
This grandmother relies on free breakfast and lunch at school, but what about dinner, what about the weekends, and what about after school or when school is out for holidays and summer?
WIDOWS AND ORPHANS
YOUR GIFT WILL BE DOUBLED TODAY
All commitments between now and July 31 will be doubled. Not only your one-time gifts but also your monthly pledges.
Make a $30 per month pledge, and your gift becomes $720. Insuring children like the Z’s will be fed this summer and throughout the year as well.
Your gift makes it possible for children not only to eat, but to be loved, and most importantly to hear the love of Jesus in a time of their lives when they feel abandoned, hungry, & hopeless.
To see the joy on a child’s face when they receive a piece of fruit is priceless! But to know, your gift can change the direction of these kids lives.
The Z's have full bellies, their grandmother has the support and community she needs, and the Kingdom of God is introduced to three beautiful children.
For the Z’s, your gift is changing the direction for an entire family!
Will you help more children like the Z’s who live in neighborhoods where they don’t have access to the foods they need?
With your generous gift, you help us take food and the love of Jesus into the communities where the kids live. And if you act now your pledge or gift will be doubled!
Your support of the Dream Center means meals to children just like the “Three Z’s”. A safe place to go while grandmother is working. It means extra help with homework. And most importantly it means they get to learn all about a Jesus who died for them and cherishes them at a time in their life that they are missing that from their own mother.
This widow and these orphans are cared for. THIS IS PURE AND GENUINE CHRISTIANITY!
