Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Coincidence? I Think Not

I just want to record this:

I recently decided to sponsor an additional child (And if you want to sponsor a child, ask me where this is! 100% of sponsor money is spent on the child! That's very rare in any organisation!) I thought about what type of child I wanted to sponsor. I thought about asking if I could sponsor one of Joash's (one of my sponsor children - the only boy!) siblings. After prayer, I thought that I should leave it up to the team at the orphanage.

The child I got is Ingrid... Joash's older sister!

Truly, our God is an awesome God!
