I trust you all have been blessed by folowing Davids’ story. I know I have been. I hope it has helped you to understand how very important it is for every child to have a family. Tears streamed down my face when I saw the picture of Davids, his arms raised in victorious praise. With your help, we can make this happen for countless orphans who dream this very dream.
Today I want to tell you about some teens in Texas who sincerely want to see this happen. Shortly before Christmas I received an email from a girl named Abby Jo. In her email she told me how excited she was about the FIG program. She was eager to be involved, only as a teen, she had no real way to meet the financial commitment. She asked if there was anything she could do, would it be okay if she prayed for the kids? Not only that, but she had many friends who wanted to pray and advocate too. She organized her team and each of them chose some children to pray for. Since then, I have received a steady stream of emails from girls introducing themselves and informing me which child she was praying for.
Through this contact, the Junior FIG program was born. If you or a teen you know would be interested in becoming a part of the Junior FIG program, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the program outline along with a parental consent form to be signed and returned to me.
As seen through Davids’ story, prayer changes things.
Psalm 66:19-20 But certainly God has heard; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God who has not turned away my prayer nor His lovingkindness from me.
