The Reason Why

This morning, I opened my Inbox to an update from Pastor Kumar. In it, he included photos of the new water cooler the orphanage bought so that the children can have clean water to drink.

Thankful for clean water.

It was a timely encouragement. My life at the moment seems a little over-full, and a good chunk of my time, thoughts, and energy at the moment are bent towards fund raising for these precious kids. Seeing the result of that hard work was a total blessing.

On October 18, the orphanage's advocacy team (me, included) has organized a Comedy Night to benefit Faith Children Home. I am excited, nervous, and hopeful, as this is the first time I have done anything like this. However, I believe that it will work out just the way God wants it to--His hand has been so apparent in every step of the way so far. And these kids have been his responsibility all along--he has only brought me and my team alongside to be his hands and feet to help them.

Check out this fun promo video for the Comedy Night by a couple of the performers:

I hope you have received an unexpected encouragement today, friends. And if not, be encouraged with this:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
