Tuesday Tally…… 5157 balls

I am so blessed that balls and funds have been donated to the tune of a total of 5157 balls.   God never ceases to amaze me with his accounting which never makes sense.    All this out of $100.      I am trusting that the last half will be provided for.    Thanking Him in advance for His faithfulness and you for your partnership. All for His Glory!

Why Balls and Not Food and Shelter?

Imagine living in this….

 

I know what your thinking.   Thats  a very good question and one my mom challenges me on.   Well, its an easy  question to answer because it is not an either or scenario.     When I go to the Dominican Republic I serve in many areas.    I have provided food to hungry villages and left my clothing behind bringing home an empty suit case so they have clothes to wear.  I have snuggled alongside families and just befriended them and prayed with them in their time of need.   In January, my plan is to go to Village 50 where living conditions are devastating.   I will be joining a construction team and we will be building new shelters that the termites will not invade. Oh, and I think I will take a few balls with me too for the kids.   The 10,000 Ball Challenge for Haitian Villages is just one of many ways that I reach out to touch others and be a difference maker.    Just curious, where is God calling you?

3615 Balls About to Bring Smiles to Kids in the Dominican Republic

We are 1/3 of the way there.  10,000 Balls is still the goal.    Who would have thought that a phone call to find how many balls I could get for $100 would turn into this.    There are going to be a lot of priceless smiles as kids receive their balls.  A ball is just the beginning of what skills kids learn in sports that will help them navigate through life.
