Following God’s Call to Care for Orphans — Part 2
“[G]ive, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38 ESV
Generosity is one of the characteristics of ICC donors like you! And as the text above indicates, as you give generously, so God provides generously for you. In this way, you are being a Difference Maker in the lives of “His Kids.”
Everyone within the ICC family is a Difference Maker — each person in their own way. Whether it’s through generous financial gifts that help provide for Christian caregivers, food, and clothes, or through prayer support that helps shield and protect the children, your contributions are valuable and very much appreciated by the children.
Throughout the ICC family of supporters, there are many wonderful examples of what it means to be a Difference Maker. This includes Debbie McDonald who paints a beautiful picture of what it means — literally!
Debbie started painting after an accident resulted in a serious knee injury. Unable to work, or even walk easily, she took up painting. What started out as a simple hobby soon turned into a way to bless others.
Rather than just paint for herself, Debbie enjoys painting things that make others happy. She paints portraits for her friends to remember passed loved ones by, and photos to brighten churches and sanctuaries. Recently, she also painted an ICC child from one of the children’s villages.
As a part of the ICC family, Debbie has a heart for children. When she learned about how this child arrived sick and in desperate need of care, she felt inspired to tell others about the girl’s story. Yet, rather than use words, she used a paintbrush.
Now, Debbie’s painting speaks to the heart of all who see it, reminding others that there are orphans who need their help! It is an inspiration for others to step out in faith to give, and to become Difference Makers in their own way.
Again, each member of the ICC family of supporters is a Difference Maker. The children appreciate you very much.
