Preach on!

I just wanted to post a big THANK YOU to our church's wonderful preacher Mr. Tommy Poarch for preaching an excellent sermon on helping the orphan today!  I have been asking him to do this since about October when I realized that Orphan Sunday was coming up and, as he told our congregation today so emphatically, I loaded him down with tons of information!  But today was finally the day he chose to preach on this topic and he did a great job. 

There are 40-something verses in the Bible, most in the Old Testament, that talk about the widow and the orphan and the way God wants us to treat them and care for them.  That is a lot of verses, and he went through quite a few to emphasize his point that God does not take the plight of the orphan lightly.  He wants us to be His hands and feet on this earth, taking care of His children and being physical fathers and mothers to them since He cannot be here in the physical form.  He expects them to be looked after by His people, and Tommy did a great job of expressing that.  I am very grateful to him for speaking on this subject today and making others in our church more aware of the needs of so many across this world who do not have a loving family!

As a result, I have had others ask me about how to donate to our Lifesong matching grant, so I wanted to put the physical address in this post.  You may mail checks to this address below or use Pay-pal as I mentioned before on their website by  going to their donate page and putting Rowe family in their purpose line.

The physical address is:

Lifesong for Orphans

PO Box 40 / 202 N. Ford St
Gridley, IL 61744

You can put Rowe Family Grant in your memo line of your check.

Thank you again to everyone who is supporting us, physically and emotionally on this journey!!!!  And thank you to our wonderful preacher for trying to further open the eyes of Christians to this incredible need across our world!
