Dearest Friends of the Heart,
As most of you know, Love Ministries has recently started the Love Ministries Federation. This is a Lovebased, cooperative communion of small, independent ministries which care for orphans in the poorest countries on earth.
Many of these orphans have had homes, brothers, sisters, and parents torn away from them through military violence. Some have had their homes, all possessions, pets, and even family-members burned before their little innocent eyes. This is in turn supported by greed, commercialism, and religious bigotry.
These do represent the poorest people on our little planet. The Way of Love is often marked by how we deal with strangers.
As beautiful spring grows into summer, what is the very greatest, the most fundamental, gift that you can give to another?
It is the gift of continued life. We now have a great and wonderful opportunity to give to God's children this very special gift. For only the amount that you would pay for one cd, or one hamburger, you can make the ultimate difference between life and death, survival and perishing. We are accepting donations of as small as three dollars. Due to an almost complete absence of response to this fine program, we are
canceling it for now, as of 033109.
As of 040109, we have collected and/or donated the following:
New Anonymous Donor: $50
Jim and Maureen Dwyer: $50
Friend from New Hampshire: $5
Barb and Dale Siler: $100
Total 040109: $600
The only reason that we were able to meet our relatively tiny financial goals for the Federation was that Love Ministries USA (lmiusa) added the missing amount. So, as of 040109, we have sent $100 to each of the Federation ministries/orphanages.
Since we have six ministries in the Federation, i.e., Love Ministries of India, Love Ministries of Kenya, Love Ministries of Pakistan, Love Ministries of Rwanda, Love Ministries of Sierra Leone, and Love Ministries of Uganda, our goal for this month was $600.
While donations to larger charities are often ending up in the files or accounts of service-providers and solicitors, phone-bills, electric bills, etc., one hundred percent of all donations to Love Ministries Federation are guaranteed to go straight to the children in need.
Love, from the Heart,
shi and the staff of the Love Ministries Federation
