Making a difference...

Choosing to make a difference is something that is near and dear to my heart. Last night James & I had the opportunity to attend a dinner with our friends L.C. & Sarah. Sarah's friend Martha Marie recently joined a group called Caroline's Promise. They are bringing their ministry to South Carolina. Their mission is to spread the word about adoption.

“Your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.” Matthew 18:14

The keynote was given from Robby Mitchell. He was abandoned at the age of 3 and lived in an orphanage for the remainder of his childhood. It was interesting to hear his story as someone who was not adopted and has succeeded in life. He started following Christ shortly after leaving the orphanage. If you'd like to help share the vision of Caroline's Promise they do have a group on Facebook or you could sign up to brown bag it ones a week to help fund this ministry.

Something else I wanted to bring to your attention. Have you heard of TOMS shoes? This is a company that for every pair of shoes that are purchased a pair of shoes is given to a child in need. So tomorrow (4/16) they are asking everyone to go without shoes in an attempt to bring more attention to their company. I'm going to go without shoes but I don't run into too many people since we don't typically leave the development. I can however spread the word through the blog. So check out their site and if you're in a position to go without shoes, do it and help spread the word about One for One.
