As we pray for God to transform India through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, this fundraiser will be a means for us to be a part of God's movement. It is not specific to a certain ministry, but it will be used for whichever ministry needs the financial help. Whether that is to enhance the orphanage or transform a whole village through a well, house church, and the very Word of God.
God's plan is so much greater than we can imagine and He asks us to faithfully take steps to glorify Him. As we pray for our brothers and sisters in India, I want to ask that we carve out some of the blessings that God has given us to bless others. The finances that God has given is not just ours to keep, but it is a means for us to be good stewards of God's money and practice generosity. I do not ask for gigantic donations, but I ask for prayerful donations.
Some of the ways that I want to encourage you to give is:
- Each time we pray for the kids, pastors, and the churches, give x amount
- Commit to giving monthly and pray each time a donation is made.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”[a]
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
Thank you for your partnership in India Adoption.
