orphans eating a meal in Malawi because of my gift

Just before Christmas I received some gifts of money. This has happened before and usually I needed the funds for my own expenses. However, this time I had enough to meet my basic budget, so I decided to give away some of these gifts. I had great joy in passing them on to friends in third world countries, where they have taken in orphans into their homes. In two cases the Pastor/ House father wrote that there was not enough for food or clothing for the orphans. So my gifts were received enthusiastically.

This gave me great joy too! I wish the same for you!

May you discover that giving generously in 2017 will make you richer in many ways than you ever thought possible.

GENEROSITY AT LUNCHTIME

Floris Claesz. van Dyck 001.jpg

Have discovered a delightful mini-restaurant in a local hospital. The staff are friendly and the food delicious. Visiting it recently, I discovered that I had not brought any cash with me and the restaurant does not have a card-machine or accept a cheque. Suddenly a cheerful customer, part of  a delightful family group, offered me a £5 note. Somewhat overwhelmed, I explained I had the money but not to hand. She said they would be delighted for me to enjoy a meal on them as it is Christmas.

I then spent time sharing with the family about Elijah and the meals by Raven which he experienced. They were very attentive…not sure if they had heard or read the story before. I then explained about the Raven Fund which sought to channel savings to  those with financial challenges. I shared with them that their gift would go via the Raven Fund to refugees in Kenya. They were delighted.

Generosity at lunchtime for sure….
