Our Both Hands project is in full swing!Yesterday our Team gathered to stuff envelopes, and tomorrow there will be nearly 600 letters hit the mail!
It's an incredible Scriptural concept to extend a hand to the widow and the orphan, based on James 1:27.
The family (us) selects a widow (the project) to lend a hand to. In our case, we have two widows (meaning two projects!).
Then we recruit a Team. We have 12 Team families.
The Team commits to do 2 things ~
1) Send letters asking friends and family members to sponsor them as they work on the project. It's sort of like a charity golf tourney or a walk for the cure, except our project is extending one hand to the widow and one to the orphan, as Scripture commands us to do.
2) Spend one full day working on each project.
How does this benefit the family?
All funds raised go into our account at Lifesong, to be disbursed as we need them for the adoption of our two Treasures, Kasidi and Kennah.
What does our project consist of?
We will spend a day at the home of each widow. There is an extensive list of tasks, all coordinated by our project foreman, Brad. We will trim trees, landscape, plant grass, replace a garage door, replace eves, replace two sinks and counter tops, build a patio cover, install a porch swing...among other things. It's going to be amazing, and we are so blessed to have the opportunity to extend a hand to two beautiful women who love the Lord!
