Advent Study Starts MONDAY!

 

Our Advent study is almost here!!! I can’t wait for Monday!!!

For those of you who are wondering, “What materials do I need for the upcoming study?”…..this post is for you!

What materials do I need?
1. A Bible

2. The Advent Reading Plan/Bookmark that is available at the bottom of every emailed post for blog subscribers. The Advent bookmark is the S.O.A.P. reading plan we will be following these next 4 weeks. I always have mine printed out and in my Bible…….as a bookmark! I love to check off the verses as I read them!

3. The Advent eBook- I personally like to print the eBook out each session and have it spiral bound at either Staples or OfficeMax. You can also use a 3 ringed binder or regular notebook to record your S.O.A.P. observations, applications and prayers. Do whatever works for you!

4. 4 Candles- we will light one candle for each week leading up to Jesus’s birthday!

Not up for printing the study guide? Then try this resource! Check out: SOAPstudy.com

 

 Don’t have the Advent eBook? We can fix that!

1. Make sure you’re subscribed to our blog.(At the bottom of every email you receive from GMG, the links to the eBook and reading plan will be listed there for you to download.)

2. Check to make sure the GMG emails are not going into your Spam or Junk email folders.

3. After doing steps 1 & 2, if you still haven’t received the Advent eBook, leave a comment and I will contact you.

 

Looking forward to you joining us as we “Keep Our Hearts Focused on Jesus” this Christmas!

 

Love God Greatly!

Giving The Gift Of Water {A Christmas Challenge}

God has a wonderful track record of using ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

I believe God is calling us to do something EXTRAORDINARY this Christmas! Today I’m inviting you to join Good Morning Girls and change an ENTIRE NATION in the name of Jesus!!! This Christmas I am issuing a very special Christmas Challenge,  a chance to partner with us and help provide clean drinking water for millions of men, women and children who are without the very basics…..clean water!

For our Christmas Challenge we’ve decided to partner with THE LAST WELL, a Christian organization with a God-sized mission: To provide clean water to the entire nation of Liberia- border to border and share Jesus with every person they serve!!! So far, TLW has reached over 200,000 men, women and children in Liberia with water and the Gospel. Their goal: To reach every Liberian with water and the Gospel by the end of this decade! I believe we can help them meet this goal even FASTER and thereby help save more lives in the process!

I had the wonderful opportunity this week to meet with Todd Phillips, the founder of The Living Well, and talked with him briefly about his ministry and our Christmas Challenge!

(Note: Click here if you can’t see the video.)

Why this organization?

  • It meets a basic need. Clean water. Men, women and children are dying because they don’t have the very basics…..clean water.
  • Local men and women in the communities are trained how to dig, maintain and repair the wells that are created through this organization.
  • The money we raise is MATCHED!
  • We are able to track how much money has been raised through GoodMorningGirls from our own personal site! (Check it out)
  • Jesus the “Living Water” is shared with the people in these communities as their need of physical water is met.

Why water?

  • It’s the first physical building block in helping a community become healthier. Everything else like health, food and livelihood builds upon it.
  • Unsafe water is the world’s number one killer…..it kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war!
  • Of the thousands of people who die daily from this problem, 90% are children under the age of five. As a mom of 3 girls ages 6,5, and 1,  I feel compelled to stand in the gap for these children and do something about this issue!
  • The hard truth: These deaths are preventable….with access to clean water.

Why Liberia?

Make sure and check out Todd’s video on why the country of Liberia was chosen.

 

How much does one well cost?

  • ONE dollar gives ONE Liberian clean water for ONE year.  How many people can you help?
  • Purchase a water well for a community in Liberia for $3000.  The average well serves 1000 people!
  • Purchase a bio-sand water filter for one family in rural Liberia for $102.  You can give an entire family clean water!

How Can You Get Involved?

  • Add The Last Well to your Christmas list.
  • Talk with your family about The Last Well and give a family gift.
  • Give up a Christmas gift(s) and instead donate the money to The Last Well.
  • Invite your children to give up a Christmas gift(s) and donate the money to The Last Well.
  • Have a “Happy Birthday Jesus” party with your friends and their kids. (I talk about this idea in our Advent eBook on page 40) Instead of having children bring gifts to donate, have them donate the money online and learn more about the need for clean water in Liberia, building awareness of how other children live around the world.
  • Tell friends about THE LAST Well by sharing this graphic on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, informing more people of this wonderful organization and the great need of physical water and the “Living Water” in Liberia!
  • PRAY! Pray God will use us mightily in this nation for HIS GLORY!

Please join us as we strive to make a difference in our generation for Christ by serving one of the poorest countries in the world. Imagine what 16,000 Good Morning Girls could do by giving just $10 each. We could provide clean water and the Gospel to thousands of Liberians, saving lives now and changing eternal destinies as well.

Let’s be women who not only read God’s Word together, but CHANGE God’s World TOGETHER!!! I believe, we are here for “such a time as this!”

Please join us this Christmas and help change a nation in the name of Jesus, one water well at a time!

I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”- Matthew 25:40
