We have a chance to save Kiah's life!!!!

My friends, we have the collest opportunity!!!!!
How often can you do something that directly, without a doubt give a child a chance at life?
 
This is Kiah....


She is precious beyond words and she is waiting....and I KNOW this community can help!
She needs open heart surgery to save her life and give her a chance to find her family.
There is a place that is so clearly the hands and feet of Christ,
if you have not visited New Day Foster Home's site I encourage you to go and check it out!!!!


and they want to help Kiah...
but their surgery funds are almost gone. You can read more


Remember Lucy who we prayed for????


God answered those prayers and she has found her family! They are working hard to get to her quickly!!!

So let's get the word out for Kiah!
New Day is needing to have her surgery funded by May 1st..

What can we do to help?

PRAY
We can pray for Kiah and the other little ones that wait, pray that the Lord would multiply our giving like the loaves and the fishes!!!!


GIVE
We can donate to New Day to help with Kiah's surgery.

How?

Use the Chip In! Up on the right on my blog.

Or
Go to New Day Foster Home and use their Chip In! (They are the same and go to the same spot)

Seriously...what if everyone gave just a little bit? Wouldn't skipping a latte feel great knowing this girl's life would be saved?

GET CREATIVE!!!!!
One thing that I have learned lately is how amazingly creative this group of people is. I know that money is tight in my family but the Lord keeps nudging me to give of my money and my talents...so I give what I can and then use my writing to help. What about you? Can you sew? Then list the item (here or on your own blog) and give the proceeds to Kiah! Can you draw??? Bake??? Babysit? Got a blog...write about Kiah! Stand on your head on the street corner??? Ok...that might be creepy but you get the idea!!!!
Feel free to email me if you have an idea and I will help you figure it out!

GET THE WORD OUT!!!!!
We all may big able to give a lot or a little but one thing I know is that spreading the word does two things. It helps fund Kiah's surgery but it also gives people the chances to encounter one of the most incredible programs that is serving orphans in China for the Lord...how cool is that? Who wouldn't want to know more?

It is such a honor to be a little part of Kiah's story and to get ring side seats to watch the Lord work...will you help out????
