Right now there are cool things on the horizon on almost every front. . .I can't wait to tell you all about it.
RLC is getting ready for our new launch of our improved website with a CRAZY contest for the entire month of October. . .a contest that will change the world. Do you have something that you could donate as a prize? We'll feature you on our site and in a TON of blogs. . and it will encourage people around the world to LIVE OUT what Jesus says about the Poor.
HopeMongers is getting ready to launch. . this amazing site created by a group of amazing people is going to transform micro-philanthropy (my new favorite word) and is going to get precious water to some precious people on my heart
HopeChest. . .man, what isn't cool about what they are doing? I heart HopeChest. We have 600 kids slated for new sponsorship in the next 2 months!!! Oh Jesus! Some of them will be through an online sponsorship community with RLC. . .want to partner with us to feed a seriously hungry child? Leave me a comment. . you can even take a group of 20-25 for your community group, neighborhood, or small church
5For50 is getting a facelift. . and I get to be a small part of the team! This is going to be seriously cool. Asking people all across the world to give just $5 a month. . which will be used for emergency food, water and education relief!!! Oh yeah. . and its going to have an entire event just for youthgroups!!!! Does your youth group want to be involved?
iFast58 is the amazing cool grassroots movement that I haven't even told you blog readers about yet. . .but it all started with a few of us learning about fasting. . and becoming quite obsessed with it. . .and now 50 of us are giving up our Wednesdays for prayer and fasting for the poor, hungry and oppressed throughout the world and meditating on Isaiah 58. . and we'll have a website soon!
Greg's trip is coming together for September in Uganda. . and mine is gearing up for February/March. I already have 4 churches interested! In fact, I think we are going to open up a trip to Swaziland too! It'll be either right before or right after my Uganda trip. Want to talk to your pastor about joining me in one of those countries?
Yeah. . .as you can tell, I'm floored. . .I'm humbled that God would choose to allow me to be a fly on the wall for ANY of these organizations much less friends with the wicked cool, smart people who are running these things. . .and yeah I think God is going to change the world through this stuff. . .draw people to Him. . feed the hungry. . .rescue the oppressed. . .and completely woo me in the process. My yesterday was spent largely in worship and I just get so overwhelmed! He is sooooo Good!!!
