Can You Be A Monday Morning Christian Today?

As most of you know our family is grateful and supports the tremendous work done by the ministry of Reece's Rainbow.  If it were not for them Dima would not be here right now.  He would most likely be residing in an adult mental institution wasting away and absolutely miserable.  Instead he is here in his brand new pajamas from Carol watching cartoons snuggled up with his little brother, Sammy.  He has a full belly and a smile on his face.

Each year from November 20 - December 31 Reece's Rainbow has the Angel Tree for their little ones with Down Syndrome up to age 5.  The goal is to raise $1,000 in that time for each of those children.  This has been an amazing year for the Angel Tree thanks to the coverage Reece's Rainbow received by ABC Nightly News!  So many little ones have reached their goal of $1,000 or exceeded it by so much more!

But there are 49 little ones who have not yet met their $1,000 goal.  The Angel Tree ends at midnight tomorrow night.  How can you help?  What can you do?  Can you donate $5.00?  $10.00?  $100.00?  More?  Can you help set in motion a way for these little ones to be adopted into a loving family?  Can you help be a part of an amazing story of redemption?

Here is a golden opportunity to be a Monday Morning Christian.

A Scripture verse that frequently comes to mind when I think of all of the children listed with Reece's Rainbow is Proverbs 24:12.  You will see the verse at the top of my blog under the title.  My favorite version of this verse comes from The Message:

"Rescue the perishing; don't hesitate to step in and help.  If you say, "Hey, that's none of my business," will that get you off the hook?  Someone is watching closely, you know-  Someone not impressed with weak excuses."

In this paraphrase it is pretty clear that if we have knowledge of someone in need God holds us responsible to DO something about it.  What are you going to do with the knowledge I just shared with you?

If you wish to make a tax deductible contribution to one of the 49 little ones who have not yet met their $1,000 mark, please click HERE.  That will take you directly to Reece's Rainbow's Angel Tree page.  Here is your chance to be a Monday Morning Christian on a Friday morning!
