"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)
