Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
One of the many things I love about Good Morning Girls is how we strive to put God’s Word into ACTION! I think Courtney and I have touched on this topic every GMG session, last session was no different. This past winter we gave our GMG groups the following challenge: Decide as a group how you want to put James 2:17 into action by supporting the Mercy House. The Mercy House exists to provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya. The Mercy House aids these girls in nutrition, housing, prenatal care, counseling, Biblical teaching and job skills for sustainable living. For this challenge each group individually decided how they wanted to help the Mercy House. Some groups purchased the Mercy House t-shirts, others donated clothes and baby items, still others donated items off the monthly donation list. Each donation, no matter how big or small helped these precious girls in Kenya.
A few weeks ago I received the following email from Stacey who blogs at http://www.29lincolnavenue.com and http://modsquadblog.com/ and it so touched my heart that I wanted to share it with all of you! I LOVE how her group chose to meet the GMG Challenge!
This is the email I received from Stacey:
Thanks again Stacey, Amy, Stef and Tracie for participating in the GMG Challenge and for being so sweet and generous with your time, prayers, money and thoughtfulness! I LOVE how you put God’s Word into ACTION!
To find out more about the Mercy House and the GMG Challenge you can read the blog post and watch the video here! Kristen and Maureen’s story truly is inspirational! God is doing great things in Kenya because of these two women’s obedience to His call on their lives!
