God Multiplies

Kelly and Heather McGugan (a.k.a. Mr. and Mrs. McGoo) have been involved with The Forsaken Children since mid-2010. It hasn't taken long to get them hooked - Kelly serves as Sports Ministry Intern for TFC and Heather is a board member.

Although Mr. McGoo and I have not been called to adopt (at this time or never - who knows how God will lead), we've been led to care for the least of these through giving financially and being fully involved physically with The Forsaken Children (TFC) and its partner ministry, Onesimus, in Ethiopia. TFC works to care for the least of these in Ethiopia, the street children. Daily the ministry strives to care for the street children and the community around its compound, working to be the hands and feet of Christ while giving them lasting hope.

You see, too often as believers we either ignore the scriptures calling for us to do something, to care, to give, or to share our lives with someone else. Or we believe the lie that the problem is too big and my "help" would not be significant enough to matter so we stand idle. For too often I fell into the latter category - I felt the pull of what God was telling me to do, but felt trapped and insignificant in how to do so. The thing is, God has shown me over the last year and half that my "little" offering is all that He's calling me to give - Just like when Jesus took the small offering from the little boy of bread and fish to feed the multitude (John 6). He blessed the boys obedience and took the small amount of bread and two fish to make a whole lot! God simply wants our obedience; for us to do our part, answer His calling, and allow Him to turn our little into what He plans.

Bring what you have and let God take it from there!
