Community Outreach - Letters, Linus and Helping Hands!

As I've shared before, our kids are taking on a weekly community outreach project in our homeschool! This has been a lot of work and a lot of fun, as well. It's very rewarding when we can see the fruits of our actions, as is often the case in our abortion mill family ministry, but that is not always the case with every community service project. Above is a photo of the children around a get well card that they composed to a man who underwent surgery to repair a torn rotary cuff. We became aware of him through our monthly support we send out via Samaritan Ministries, which is our family's healthcare provider. We plan on making this a monthly community service for our family, as our Christian brothers and sisters really do need encouraging words, especially in times of sickness!

Our girls (and even Judah!) were able to help sort a TON of baby clothes that were lovingly donated to Annalise's new ministry, Helping Hands Saving Lives, which helps enable those who minister at abortion mills to offer long term resources to moms who choose life! She hopes to be able to provide these moms who choose life for their babies with clothing and other items, that are much needed. From what she receives in donations, she also is able to donate to another ministry - Truth for Mercy and Life - that provides baby showers and 2 years worth of clothing and baby items to moms who chose life and would appreciate such items! This is such a wonderful blessing to see Annalise's ministry taking flight!

Another fun project the kids have done is when they made Linus Blankets! Project Linus provides love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."Above are photos of the children working on these blankets!
"You, my brothers, were called to befree. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love." ~ Galatians 5:13
