I decided I would work on simply creating awareness, I would help get the word out. I wouldn't even really try to raise the money, after all I couldn't. So I started the facebook cause with the intention of simply offering a way for people to know about it, I figured knowledge is kinda like money and I could count that, right?
Then things started to happen. I ended up asking for donations for Christmas, and people gave! Family and friends gave to the cause. I gave to the cause on behalf of my family for Christmas. I was happy because I had done what little I could. In December I was contacted by my German friend Vanessa and she wanted to know if her youth group in Germany could do a benefit concert for the orphanage! So they dubbed over the video into German and planed a choir concert for February.
As of last weekend God, not me, raised $2,ooo that's including the facebook donations and the concert. I didn't think it could happen. In fact I was certain it wouldn't after all I didn't have that kind of money and how was I to get it?
Why did I doubt?
Why did I believe that God wouldn't work?
Why did I have such little faith?
"For all the animals of the forest are mine,
and I own the cattle on a thousand hills"
God sold some cattle on the hill for me the other day. I don't deserve it but I'm glad He did.
