What if...

Our family lives in Oklahoma and if you've been watching the news over the past 7 days, you've seen that Moore, Oklahoma was hit by a devastatingly big tornado. Lives were lost and thousands of homes were destroyed. There are many people in our state who have lost everything. What happened after the tornadoes hit and what is continuing to happen is in my opinion, a Church revival. Local churches are being the Hands and Feet of Christ and have completely stepped up to help these families who have lost everything. It is incredible to see. I have never been prouder of my state and Christ's church.

What if I told you that in Oklahoma there are close to 10,000 children who have lost everything? These children had to leave their house, their parents, possibly siblings and become a ward of the state, a foster child. Can we respond in the same way? Please? Can churches work together and post things on facebook about the needs of these children, birth parents and foster families? Nothing is impossible when the Body of Christ steps in and is willing to get their hands dirty and risk their lives for others. We have seen that this week.

"Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they're not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes..." David Platt
