Give Me 5: What Are Five Causes You Wholly Believe In and Why?
Here are the FIVE causes I wholly believe in and why:
Cause: Compassion International
Effect: Compassion International is an organization which exists and functions as a Christian child advocacy ministry that frees children from spiritual, financial, social and physical poverty. Additionally, it enables them to grow into responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
I’m blessed to be a Compassion International Advocate and Blogger.
Cause: MANNA Worldwide
Effect: MANNA Worldwide is a Christian ministry organization founded in 1991 by Bruce and Pam O’Neal. It focuses on caring for children in poverty worldwide. They strategically fight GLOBAL GIANTS such as disease, widespread poverty, rampant issues with reading and writing skills, and spiritual vacancy.
My husband and I have partnered with MANNA since its inception.
Cause: LIFT Ministries (our ministry)
Effect: LIFT Ministries is a high-energy, heart changing, life experience where true friendships are made and students are inspired to know, love and follow Jesus. To date LIFT has ministered to nearly 60,000 students nationwide. LIFT has seen more than 8,000 of those students come to know Christ as their personal Savior and hundreds surrender their lives to serve in full-time ministry.
Effect: The mission of OneVerse is to speed up Scripture translation. We (I’m a OneVerse partner and blogger) long to get the Word of God into the hands of those without God’s Word through Great Commission partnerships.
Cause: St. Jude Children’s Hospital
Effect: As some of you know, I’m a nurse by profession. Long before the diploma landed in my hand, however, I longed to care for children. Although I’m not practicing nursing now, we believe in and support St. Jude.
“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Ranked one of the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the country, St. Jude is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.”
