Giving Tuesday is upon us! Over the last few weeks, we have tried to lay the groundwork for today by relaying both stories of how God is using US (YOU the supporter and US the Harrods) to bring Czechs to himself, as well as outlining specific needs that we need to fill in order for this ministry to continue uninterrupted into the future.
As Advent is a season of waiting and expectation, we are excitedly waiting to see what God will continue to do through us and you, especially as we enter the Christmas season. Personally, I love this season more than all others, but as I’ve grown older the paradox of it has grown, while I love it and love to watch the wonder is my sons’ eyes, I’ve lived more life and experienced more hurts. So my heart longs for what we prayed over my grandmother when she passed this fall, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
As I’ve grown older, the longing for Jesus, his return and for him to make things right has only increased. This is why every advent season I listen to Isaac Wimberley’s poem, GOD WITH US.
He washed it white as snow
So now we, as His bride, are the ones waiting
Like the saints that came before, we’re anticipating
He has shown us that this world is fading
And He has caused our desire to be for Him
So church, stay ready
Keep your heart focused and your eyes steady
Worship Him freely, never forgetting
His great love for you
Immanuel, God with us
In the midst of Advent sits Giving Tuesday, and it’s our goal for Giving Tuesday to kick off the Advent giving season. Our teamHARROD Advent Blessing campaign is well underway! We hope and pray that you would consider helping us reaching our goal of seeing $80 of new monthly support come in every one of the 25 days leading up to Christmas.
Our target for new support during this campaign is $2000/month. $2000 a month to help us continue to do the work God has called us to in Prague and in the Czech Republic. Monthly support allows us to have longevity here. Monthly support not only allows us to put food on the table for our family but also for so many others. Monthly support allows us to feed not only our two-year-old son, but also the homeless man and his two-year-old son we see every month when our MC serves Prague’s homeless. Monthly support allows us to have a flat that we can open up for those who need to weep and grieve, and also for those who need to celebrate! We were also able to open up our home to our coaches and their significant others multiple times this fall, which helps us to build those relationship!
Would you prayerfully consider joining our monthly team for the first time?
Would you consider being one of our faithful monthly givers, who are lead to increase your monthly support?
