Light the fire....

...and the fire was lit!

Well, not sure how to put the event into words...(but I'll try!) ...the most important thing was that God was glorified and people's hearts were moved...and some were even moved to action!

"And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your LIGHT will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday." Isaiah 58:10

Our Called2Care's goal for the evening was simply to bring awareness to Ordinary Hero, the needs in our own community, to support Kelly Putty and Jami Kaeb, and to spread the word about the 240 children who are orphaned PER HOUR!!!!

We wanted people to know that there is ONE (or two...) out there waiting for them....needing them....not only to be taken care of...and to have their physical needs met...but to share with them JESUS loves them and died for them!

Isn't that our ultimate goal as believers...to share God's Word?!?!!?

We are excited to hear how God has/and will touch hearts for the fatherless and those in need as the days and months go on....

We've already heard of one family that had adoption on their hearts....and after the event they left saying, "who is our one?", they then got a call on Wednesday(4 days later...)

and NOW HAVE THAT LITTLE BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

How GREAT is our GOD?!?!?!

We've heard of a few other families that have said they will be starting the adoption process! I can't wait to watch God guide these families to their little one! :)

If you weren't able to make it to the event...I pray that God will give you a burden for those in need. That doesn't always mean....ADOPTION....as much as I would love to bring one home in July for myself and every other family.....I don't believe that is what God has for me right now:)....but yet, He can still use me and YOU to serve others in the same town we live in!

I'll be posting pics in the next few days...:)

Well, I don't have a lot of time to blog right now...but just wanted to post a picture that I took at the event!

We thought that it'd be awesome for our church family(and kids) to get involved before the event arrived. So, we asked those in our church to bring in shoes for children in need to jump-start our event! We then had the children bring them up to the stage the Sunday before the event.....to show that 240 children per hour become orphans! 240!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HUGE reality check!

It also was a great way to get the children involved and for them to realize the need right in our own town and around the world!

Thank you to those that brought in shoes! :)

We already gave some shoes to Jami Kaeb. Jami said that Lifesong could use them for a missions trip that was coming up! So yay! We also will be looking into giving some of the shoes to some area missions/shelters around here and I will of course be taking a lot to ETHIOPIA! I can't waittttttttttt! :) Ok, more pictures to come about the Ordinary Hero---Light the Fire event we had last Saturday! What a great evening it was....listening to Kelly Putty and Jami Kaeb! :)

Oh, and my friend Whitney sang...so talented!
