Serving with Both Hands
We have an exciting new fundraiser planned for this fall! We are more excited about this than any other fundraiser that we’ve done. This fundraiser provides a way to not just raise money for our adoption, but also to support a widow in our community.
James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world”. We are partnering with the organization Both Hands (www.bothhands.org) to raise funds to adopt while also helping a widow with home repairs. Basically, we are forming a team to commit to work for one Saturday on a widow’s home doing basic repairs and maintenance (landscaping, cleaning, painting, etc.). As a team, we will all be sending out sponsorship letters (just like you would ask for sponsorship for a 5K race), and that money would be used for our adoption costs. One hand will be serving a widow in the community, and the other will be helping to bring an orphan into a home, thus, the name Both Hands.
International adoption comes from a loss. It usually comes from abandonment, sometimes starvation, and just a whole lot of unfortunate circumstances. We believe that God can take all of these things, the loss, the abandonment, the heartbreak, the loneliness, and he can weave them all together with His love and make them beautiful.
So, we’re asking if you can partner with us to show Christ’s love in a real and impacting way. Would you volunteer to be a part of our project team? Or, maybe you want to donate supplies? Or, you can sponsor our project online (and it’s tax-deductible!) at www.bothhands.org/project/lunde-219. If you want to volunteer to be a part of our team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our project will be taking place October 10th, and we will have a FAQ meeting at our home in a few weeks so you know what to expect if you want to volunteer. Take a look at our video below!
We’re excited to be able to show Christ’s love to a widow and to our community. We want you to be a part of it, too. In a world that focuses on the negativity of Christians, we want to completely shatter this view of the church. We are a bunch of imperfect people who want to show Christ’s amazing, life-changing, indescribable love. Let’s come together as a body of Christ and see what beautiful things that He can do!
