Thankful Thursday

This month's host is Laurie and she chose HOPE as the theme. Head on to her site if you want to join us and see more thankful hearts.

This week I want to share with you what I am thankful and hoping for.

* I thank God I have HOPE that someday I will be blessed with a child. We've been praying for almost 3 years now. The doctor I went to said I have PCOS and that it would be hard for me to get pregnant but I am thankful I have GOD who can open and close a woman's womb. I remember Sarah and my Hope gets high that there is NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE FOR OUR GOD.

* I am grateful for the opening of our literacy and feeding program in one of the urban poor areas here in Makati this Saturday. I pray that this program can give hope to these kids and their families that life is beautiful with God.

* Thank God for friends who helps us hoping for things we are praying for.

HAve a nice day everyone!


ITEAMS ITeams Darfur Emergency Relief
April 1, 2009


Sudan has expelled 13 relief and humanitarian agencies that previously met 60% of the needs of displaced people in Darfur. Over one million people in Darfur could go without food within two months if new aid agencies cannot assist.

An ITeams worker just returned from a four-day trip to northern Darfur. He reports:

“People are suffering in the desert and have nothing to eat or drink. They are searching for food, water, and shelter. They eat what few leaves they can find in the merciless desert. One of the displaced people told us: ‘I would rather die than see my wife and children starving and crying out for food and water’. In the midst of the difficult situation, God is at work, drawing people to Him. We met many believers during our visit. The people study the Bible, pray, and worship in their own languages."

The Sudanese government is allowing Sudanese churches to help people in Darfur. We need to do everything we can to resource these churches for this purpose. Our friends in Khartoum have a strong history of serving the people in Darfur. They are well-connected to churches in Sudan, through which they can serve the suffering people of Darfur. They are trying to raise $28,000 to cover the costs of an emergency relief trip to bring wheat, dry milk, beans and sugar to the people of Darfur. As soon as the funds are raised, these supplies can be taken to Darfur.

You can help!

  1. Give a gift to our DARFUR EMERGENCY RELIEF fund
  2. Pray for the people of Darfur and for those trying to help them
  3. Spread the word about this opportunity to help
