Picture It

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
- Margaret Mead

A world away ... India. They celebrate this season a bit differently. Poverty has no place for stockings and Christmas trees. Maybe it's not politically correct, but I believe in all of God's promises. Without a doubt I know that with God all things are possible. We can come together and make a difference in the life of a family this Christmas.

A crazy idea of all of us buying a water buffalo. An animal that will bring work, nourishment, hope and the message of Christmas to the poorest of the poor in India. Then again, I know of a man that turned the world upside down by being born in a manger.

I jumped in and began splashing. Getting drenched, I have been joined by others and I am overwhelmed by His goodness. Many have joined in via chip in and others are sending checks via the mail. Divine Mrs. D decided to host a contest entering everyone who donates to our water buffalo in a drawing for a $50 gift card of your choosing. (So make sure to head over to her site if you donate) Friends are posting it on their blog pages. And I even received this video in my email box ...

Imagine, we could be starting a tidal wave with our little splashes!


(I can almost smell the buffalo .... 59% woohoo! Let's keep going and see what this small group of people can do) Simply click on the chip-in button to donate as I will send all funds to Gospel for Asia and if you want to send a check, leave a comment and I will send you my address)

Good for you! So great to meet another with a burden for the poor. That is for sure the will of our Lord. We usually give through World Vision; this year perhaps the Bethany Gift Catalog. We can manage a goat, I believe. God bless you in this endeavor.

I just love this. It is amazing what we can achieve with our small gifts by joining together. Thank you for doing this.

I have posted this post on my Grace Overflowing page on FB. I hope it helps to bring more donations for you.
