This morning I got up and thought, “What will I eat today?” There are many in the world that woke up this morning and instead of asking, “What will I eat today,” they simply asked, “Will I eat today!”
Welcome to Santa Ana, Honduras. A place so poor that people live in shelters made of sticks and garbage bags at the city dump so they can find scraps of food to eat. One person witnessing this for the first time said, “I gotta tell you that I wasn’t prepared for this experience. The smell was what you would expect only stronger.” Another said, “These people were filthy and smelly. Some of their hands had so much black filth on them that I cannot imagine them ever being clean again, no matter how much scrubbing was done. Small boys, about 8 – 11 years old, were there alone with no family.”
If you have read my blog in the past month, you know I’ve asked that this Tuesday you consider making a donation to the “Dump Fund” to help feed the people who live and eat at the dump. Although I haven’t officially asked for money yet, a few of you have already sent some. You guys are amazing. In fact, one person has contacted me and said they’d match dollar for dollar anything given over $2500 (up to $2500). That means if we raise $5000, this very kind person will write us a check for $2500 to make our total $7500. I’m praying that this happens. This Tuesday I’ll give you all the details how you can give, and please understand that 100% of what you give will go to feed hungry people.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Make a donation.
- If you have a blog or a website, promote or link this on Tuesday.
- Ask your Bible class/church/work place to help.
- Pray for this work.
Jesus said, “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…?” And when the people asked, “Jesus when did we see you hungry…” Jesus said, “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.” Read more about what Jesus said about feeding the hungry … here!
How about you? Are you willing to share? Did you know as little as $20 will feed the people at the dump for a day? Twenty dollars!!! That means you can give up cokes or expensive coffee for a week and with that money feed all the people in the Santa Ana, Honduras dump for a day.
Stop back by on Tuesday and we’ll spend the day raising money for the “Dump Fund.” Plus I’ve got some giveaways I’ve love to give you.
