Children Lead The Way
Last month I visited the Amherst United Methodist Church and Buena Vista Methodist Church to give updates on One Small Drop activities. These two very small churches have welcomed One Small Drop and made us feel like family. Last fall when I introduced One Small Drop, the Amherst Sunday School (8 students) decided to support the Pig Project throughout their year. They even made t-shirts that said P.I.G.S – People In God’s Service. They did various fund raising activities, like pancake breakfasts and brat fries. I was blown away by their presentation of over $540 dollars for the pig project. WOW!
Last week I received a phone call from someone I met at the Portage County Cultural Festival. Her young young children are having a “piggy party” to raise awareness and funds for One Small Drop. Amazing!
What an inspiration these young people are! It reminds me of the Bible verse, 1Timothy 4:12, “Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” These children have truly been an example.
Do any of you have examples of inspirational children in your life? Please share with me.
