I wanted to let you know about a program that Sophie will be participating in this summer, from June 1-Aug. 1, and let you know how you can help. She will be doing the Reading for Refugees program (find information on it here: http://www.hisvoiceglobal.com/?p=2050) created by the missions organization His Voice Global (http://www.hisvoiceglobal.com/). She has lots of books to choose from as her reading material, but she now needs sponsors who will commit to a PER PAGE price they would like to donate for her reading. We will keep track of the pages she has read and let you know the total. The money is due to His Voice by Aug. 15, so those of you who do not live in Hannibal, we will total the pages before Aug. 1 so you would have time to send your check.
I am personally excited about this because it fits in with what our family has been doing the last few months as we have been fasting from some of our excesses and attempting to follow Isaiah 58, which instructs us to use our time of fasting to help others in need. In June, we will be giving up the TV, so this is the perfect way for us to fulfill Is. 58 while we are not watching television.
If you would like to help us with this program, just reply to me and let me know what your PER PAGE READ pledge will be. (FYI---she's a great reader and loves to read!) Please do not feel bad if you cannot participate in the financial end of this program, but we would still love to have your prayers! Thank you so much for thinking of us and for praying for us as we tackle this amazing project.
