Planting Two Mustard "Faith" Seeds

I was born in February. I was born into a good home with a mother who loved me, cared for me, and fought for me. And while sexual abuse is part of my story, it does not define me.

For the entire month of February I am asking you to give the girls of My Refuge House the same level of love, support, and dignity that I was given. Not because they earned it, but because they deserve it as human beings created in the image of an almighty God. 

I want us to tell them they are loved and no matter how dark their story is, the love and light of Jesus will light up any room it inhabits. 

Jesus said, "I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." (Emphasis added)

People, if Jesus claims we can move mountains with our faith, we sure as heck can foster restoration and redemption in the lives of a broken and bruised generation of girls!

Are you with me?? We can do the impossible! 

Say it out loud. Together, with Jesus, we can do the impossible!

Our resources, whether financial or vocal, will plant seeds in them that we may never see the full effect of. But down the road, when a girl graduates from college and goes to medical school or runs for office in the Philippines or raises the next abolitionist or educates the forgotten of her own nation, we will know, whether now or in eternity, that we played a part in that.

There is something in each of us that yearns to be a part of something bigger. A movement.

These girls are a movement. They represent something bigger.

For the entire month of February, my birthday month, I am asking you to plant seeds two specific "faith seeds" with me.
