Down at the Carwash

One of the latest projects we are working on is a carwash. It is to raise money for the Blacks in their ministry to the Ethiopian churches. We have been privileged to send eyeglasses with them on one of their trips. That was a "hands-on" need that we could do. The kids got to help pick out eyeglasses at the dollar store. Then we packaged them up and sent them to Virginia to our friends that distributed them. It was great to get the pictures and updates from that trip. It is a great way for our children to be involved with our brothers and sisters in a different nation. Hopefully, it will stir their hearts to be compassionate and giving. It is also great to let the churches in Ethiopia know that we remember them in prayer and in tangible ways. It is so personal and we are thankful for this opportunity. So for a "hands-on" way to earn some money we are washing cars two Saturdays from now. I will take pictures to send and also to post. We are praying for good weather since it is prone to rain here anytime.

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. I Cor. 9: 1-11 Amen.
