URGENT: this IS caring for the orphan!

Update 4 pm CST: When I posted this morning, Morning Star Foundation needed $17,000 in order to remain in China and care for the precious little children in their care. The glorious Church rose up in a mighty way today and right now only $4,000 needs to be raised! Over $13,000 has been raised so far in just a few hours! Seriously! God's astound me with your generosity and extravagant love poured out. THANK YOU for sowing such precious seed which has been multiplied by our Father! How He ADORES the orphan!

Please keep sharing...we are so, so close to seeing Morning Star ministry continue on with the vision God gave them to care for the most weak and the abandoned in China! No weapon formed against them shall prosper, in the name of Jesus!


This morning I opened my e-mail and read a plea which ripped my heart out!

For the last few years we have followed the journey of the most amazing American missionary couple (and their two children) as they have loved and passionately served the children of China. Their faithfulness in the face of so many obstacles has inspired us beyond words. Bill and Lynsay know what it means to follow God with reckless abandon...and never, ever give up.

It was such a joy to finally meet Bill at Summit last week. He touched our hearts so deeply with his love for orphans, his willingness to go where God sends them, and the sacrificial life they live. These precious people live on the absolute bare essentials (we were shocked to find out just how little they survive on!).

The MORNING STAR FOUNDATION has cared for the least of the least of these in China for many years. And now they are serving the people of Uganda too! It's sacrificial love poured out for the sake of saving one child at a time!

Today, this incredible ministry and the children who have profound medical needs whom they serve in China desperately need a helping hand from the body of Christ! In order to continue providing life-saving medical treatment, food, shelter and a place to belong for these children, the Chinese government is requiring a large sum of money to keep their operation running. And they need the money today!

Would you prayerfully consider sowing seed into this ministry, please? Bill and Lynsay take in the neediest orphans--the ones who will surely die if left in state-run orphanages. They are so committed to these precious ones and love every child who enters their home as one of their very own. Knowing them and their humble hearts, I know that having to ask for help is very, very difficult. But that's what the army of God does, isn't it? We give and we help out when there is a need. This is just one way we care for the orphan in their distress! In this case, it's a lot of children!

I am so grateful for your help with this.

From Lynsay:

Rarely do we share our financial needs but we have run into an extremely urgent need. You probably know about Grace being in the hospital, this need is not about her! We are so thankful that her bill has been paid in full so far, more than $20,000 worth!

As you also probably know prices in China have skyrocketed recently making running MSFH extremely expensive these days, specifically with rent and salaries. This cannot be helped but does put a significant burden on us every month. This month has been tough but Praise God we have been able to pay salaries and bills.

The issue comes in that we had been told that we needed about $4,000 USD in capital for the business we are registering. In order for us to stay here and work we must register this business. Unfortunately today we were told they have rejected our application, even though we have already spent $4,000 in the registration process. They are now requiring nearly $17,000 to open the business.

We need this money TODAY.

I wish I was joking, but I am not.

The good news is this money will go into the capital fund of this business and will be able to be used for MSFH's expenses, specifically expenses related to the "LOVE PROJECT" as this is within the scope of the business registration. In many ways it will be a blessing to be able to have funds available when needed for the LOVE PROJECT once the business is approved.



Tax deductible donations can be made RIGHT HERE.

Every single dollar you donate will go directly to the MORNING STAR FOUNDATION!

Let's rally, friends! Calling upon the ONE who is exceedingly, abundantly able to do so much more than we could ever ask or imagine.

Show us your glory, Lord Jesus!
