Olivia’s journey has known the joy of being baptized into the family of God. I remember when she decided that she was ready to give her life to Him..she was so determined and so happy. She cried tears of joy as Tim shared with the church that she had decided to accept Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior…..her little head barely peeking over the baptistry as Tim spoke.
Olivia’s journey already includes deep grief. She misses Nick so much. Only with a strong faith in Heaven has she been able to regain her smile and joy.
Olivia’s journey has embraced Nick’s foundation, and she longs to play an active role in its ministry.
I think the fears over the past few days regarding Olivia’s health have been a catalyst in awakening within me this dream I have had for some time.
I realize daily that millions in India need to know about God, Jesus, and “Spirit.” (The Holy Spirit!) How can I and how can you help these people?
Well, here’s my dream:
Olivia “Faith” has a journey.
At the same time, each of us are on our own journey of faith.
So, my dream is called “FAITH’S JOURNEY.”
Olivia Faith’s Journey……
Your Faith’s Journey……
My Faith’s Journey……..
If you are willing to join me and Olivia on this journey, I am asking that you please consider cleaning out your drawers, closets, sheds, and garages. Then save all of your items for an opportunity to join in a nationwide yard sale month for Mid-India Christian Mission. I am going to have posters made through Nick’s Foundation so that you can print them out online. These “Faith’s Journey” posters will tell about the work in Mid-India and explain how our yard sales will help the people there learn about the love of God. You can decide if you want to give all or part of your yard sales’ profits to the mission work. I will give you the address for Mid-India’s forwarding agent so that your donations will go directly to them. I’m hoping that everyone will take pictures at their yard sale and send them to me so that we can put together a power point to share on YouTube…the power of Faith’s Journey.
I am praying that we can raise at least $50,000 for the Mid-India Christian Mission Orphanage. Just imagine the hundreds of kids who would then be better equipped to share the love of Jesus with their country. By stepping out in faith that God will use our time, energy, and money in ways we never dreamed possible (much like the Bible story of the boys’ fish and bread that fed thousands), I believe we will begin a journey in our faith that is life-changing. Who knows? This project may begin reaching a different country every year!!!
Please pray for the people of India and start cleaning now!!!
By mid-August we sh ould be ready to launch
I believe we will all be blessed as we step out in faith, willing to give so that others can know God’s love.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Thankful for a God who stretches me to the point of waking up to His dreams,
