Touched By a Miracle What we decided to do...

The "Touched by a Miracle" Contest is over and we have sent the check to World Vision as our winner Laurie Winslow Sargent had requested. Laurie asked us to donate the $100 to www.worldvision.org and chose the "Horn of Africa Food Crisis" as the target for the donation. As it turned out the donation was multiplied 6 times in matching funds!

This was a difficult choice for us because there were so many heart felt stories that came to us, and we were overwhelmed reading these and witnessing what God is doing in people's lives.

We want to thank Kathi Macias for sponsoring this contest and I want to encourage everyone to check out the Series she wrote.

In getting to know Laurie Winslow Sargent ( Read her blog about her submission to the contest here ) We realized that she and her daughter are going to the Philippines and will be teaching classes there. We really felt the urging to support them on this trip, in that her daughter, who will be teaching two classes, was seeking support for the tickets for the flights.

So we decided to send them $100 and told her we would let others know about the need here on TCBN. If you want to know more about this mission trip you can contact Laurie on her page here on TCBN.

 

So WOW! We have had a series of contests that have been exciting and there are more coming your way very soon.

On the 21st of this month we will be giving away $150 in gift cards in an online, interactive chat. It will be a scavenger hunt. There will be two books to give away and five $20 gift certificates to Novo Ink as well as two $25 gift cards to Life Way!

Watch for more details.

What a very special blog. I love hearing about stories like this when people pay it forward. I am such an emotional person, so this story got me a bit teary eyed. Another glimpse into a good heart! Wow! I know our God is pleased!

Thinking of the ministry that this will benefit excites me as well. I will go check out their blog. Thanks for sharing!
