Goodbye Ordinary

I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us. Isaiah 63:7

A Special Project March 17, 2009

Filed under: Faith,Kids,Life,Sarah's Covenant Homes — Lori @ 9:47 am

You may remember that I told you about a very special group of homes in India called Sarah’s Covenant Homes.  These homes’ purpose is to take in kids from government orphanages who have neurological or other special needs.  They give these kids a family style home to live in and love them, take care of their physical needs, and care about them like maybe they haven’t been cared about in their entire lives.

Sarah has a special project going.  It is called Operation Princess

operationprincesstagWouldn’t it be fun to be a part of helping the girls in her home to feel special?  Sarah speaks in her blog post about the Indian culture and how important it is to girls to have pretty, special things.  When you have these things it shows that there is someone who loves and cares for you enough to give you these special gifts.

We just received our tax refund and decided to give part of it to Sarah’s Covenant Homes.  She emailed and asked if there was a special project that we had in mind for the money.  We said that she should use it wherever it was needed.  Sarah emailed back and asked if we would like for it to go to buying ankle bracelets for the girls.  I know our gift won’t purchase them for every girl, but it will be a good start.  If you would be interested in helping out with this project or giving money for one of the many surgeries that the kids always need, please visit Sarah’s Covenant Homes and click on the donate link on the right hand side.

ankle-braceletsDo you ever find yourself thinking when it is your birthday or Christmas that there really isn’t anything that you need?  Or, do you have someone on your list that has everything and you never know what to get them?  Why not make a donation in someone’s name and give them a part in helping some children in India that society doesn’t think highly enough of to care about them.  It is such a small thing to us and our US$ goes a lot farther in India than it does here! 

Please visit Sarah’s blog.  She writes almost every day and gives such great information about the kids who are struggling and how we can pray for them.  I know your checking in and reading about the kids and praying for them is very important to Sarah and to the children. 

Matthew 25:31-40  “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,  I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

    you’re awesome. In our area of India, a girl gets her first pair of silver jingly anklets when she’s born. Our girls have never had them–can’t describe what this is going to mean to them. Will send pics!
