It Is All In How You Look At It …

Each day serving, working, crying, or laughing with 147 is a joy and honor … We remind ourselves and others daily, "IT IS ALL IN HOW YOU LOOK AT IT."  … I believe there is two ways to look at any one situation and both are good - it just really depends on what your heart needs and how God is trying to move you to his greater GLORY …

For example - The LOVE+1 MEDICAL CENTER in Haiti - You can look at the 6500 sq foot building with all its amazing medical equipment and the doctors/nurses that will be busy at work daily treating people or you can think about the first lil sick boy/girl that walks through the doors with a worried mother …

or

You can take a breath taking look at the village in Honduras where 28 homes are being completed or you can take the hand of a little boy on a rainy day as he brings you into his new home and grabs you a chair …

or

Our newest "Love+1 Madrina Project" that will send young adults aging out of a children's home to college and provide for their daily needs or you can picture a young woman walking her first day into college w/ her new bag, computer, and phone knowing she has hope and someone in her corner to believe in her …

Whether you are more bent toward the big picture or the small picture doesn't really matter … WHAT MATTERS IS THAT YOU ARE BENT to serve God's people and share HIS PROMISES with whoever he puts in front of you … We have always been thankful at 147 that God continues to put ONE in front of us to love, meet their needs, share the word with, and WATCH THEM go with HOPE to begin a RIPPLE EFFECT that can only be traced back to JESUS !!!

Help us make that RIPPLE EFFECT BIGGER … 147millionorphans.org   check out all that we are doing and find a place to join us … HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLESSED NEW YEAR !!!


my heart misses these two !!!
