One Day-One Lunch
Ever since I went to the Adami Tulu Preschool, I haven't bee able to get the kids out of my head. At first, I didn't know what I could do to help, so I asked my mom if I could send my lunch money there. She said yes, and so every day this school year, I have eaten a small bowl of the African soup, that I tried at the feeding program in Ethiopia. God even sent me a friend to help me, and double the gift. Which got me to thinking, what if more people would be willing to do that same?
Don’t worry, I am not going to ask you to do something you can’t- I am asking you to do something you can. The Average American spends between $2.00 and $8.00 a day on lunch. If everyone who reads this blog post would simple choose- on February 3rd to give up their ‘lunch money’ and then donate what they would have spent on lunch that day to Lifesong For Orphans for the Adami Tulu preschool in Ziway, Ethiopia. Can you image what Jesus could do? A mere $3.00 feeds a child for ONE MONTH. Can you imagine the impact we could make- simply by giving being willing to make a small sacrifice for someone else?
So mark your calendar for Feb. 3rd and spread the word about the One Day- One Lunch Project. Put it on FB, add it to your blog- ask your friends, coworkers and church family to join in. Let’s make a small sacrifice- to make one big difference.
