I’d like to introduce you to my friend from college Boone Bureenok.
I met Boone when I was in Bible College.
He returned home after school and is now pastoring a church in his homeland which runs an orphanage.
They provide a home for children whose families are unable to care for them for a variety of reasons.
Boone’s heart is heavy.
He needs help to save their church, property & orphanage.
There is much going on Thailand at the moment as we can see from a distance via the news.
Firstly, he has asked for prayer. The dream he has to provide a home to orphan children is under threat.
The weight of responsibility in itself will be great.
Secondly, the bank has required that he meet a $3800 payment by 21 March 2014.
To many this does not seem like an overwhelming amount but for a small orphanage in Thailand in might as well be millions.
To date they have raised $2000 and they still need $1200.
Another college friend, Dora Walker, has put together a plea for help from fellow Tomlinson College Alumni.
Dora and I talked the other day and we concluded that maybe we as individuals can’t do everything but everyone can do something.
It is this simple. To raise the remaining $1200 by the deadline it would take:
100 people who could give $12 each.
In NZ, that is less than the cost of a meal out.
Boone has a pay pal account set up and everyone can use his email address if they are able to give.
Many of us around the world are blessed to be able to hold our children close and feed them their favourite meal today.
I think we could honour that blessing by taking advantage of this act of kindness opportunity and sharing with children who do not have what we have today.
I have been blogging now for almost a year. My heart’s desire was to be able to reach out to the hurting hearts of this world.
Although, I am not known to ask for money, I am asking today that you once again…
look inside your heart…
does this situation speak to your heart and can you help?
if you can please give generously.
you can contact Boone via email to donate directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, no act of kindness, no matter the size, goes unnoticeable or unrewarded.
