• A sweet night’s sleep

    Today I was surfing the blogosphere when I came across this post   http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com/2010/10/sweet-sleep.html which stirred my heart.  Angie Smith writes a beautiful blog and often shares opportunities to serve others.  As I’ve mentioned before, God has been deepening my desire to serve orphans and the less fortunate.  Particularly in Africa!   Sweet Sleep (www.sweetsleep.org) has been working with ARC- the American Refugee Committee to provide a bed, mosquito net and bible to children who are returning from their refugee camps to the villages of their ancestry.

    I encourage you to reed Angie’s post about this life changing ministry and then prayerfully consider donating.  Chris and I have intentionally cut our Christmas spending WAY back the past few years to allow us to give more generously to those in need at Christmas time.  This may just be the ministry that receives our gift this year!

    James 1:27
    Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
