Alice sent me two letters this past week from two of the orphans - Deborah and Phyllis - we have sponsored and sent off to boarding school. I just love reading these letters for several reasons. When I was young, my mother made me sit down and write thank you letters, similar the ones the girls wrote (that is a lost practice I am afraid). What's more, I know these girls and I know what they have been saved to and what they have been saved from. Without Alice and without their education, they would be reduced to street children being shamelessly abused and used by unscrupulous men and women.
I ask you to read these two letters (click on them to enlarge) and think of your own children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, family friends or children in your neighborhood. Thank God for their protection and provision, and then pray for Deborah, Phyllis and all the children we are helping. Finally, please send a year-end gift to help these girls and others like them. Their school fees will be due in January and I am going over with a team in February - and they will need our help then as they do now.
As always, you can give through my website or by sending a tax-deductible check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882. You may wish to sponsor a child to send them to boarding school for a year or you may wish to do something special to honor your own family or the memory of someone gone on to be with the Lord. I will honor any request you may have - just please help the children today, now during this Christmas season. Thank you for your help.
