Reece's Rainbow ~ five5five for families

In 2011, Reece's Rainbow graciously provided thousands of dollars for our adoption of Teague, Trenton, and Maclayne.  The adoption grant was made possible by PRECIOUS generous donors who saw the potential in our children.  This time around, RR will be providing thousands of dollars from NUMEROUS precious donors in order for us to bring Greta, Felix, and Romeo home.  Because of these lifesaving gifts, SIX orphans have a forever home and know the love of a family.  Teague, Trenton, and Mackie are flourishing in our love and we cannot wait to watch as Greta, Felix, and Romeo flourish!

Reece's Rainbow is a 501(c)3 Adoption Grant Ministry that provides money to families who are adopting orphans with Down syndrome and other special needs internationally.   (To read more about RR, please click on this link:  Why Reece's Rainbow?)  RR relies on the generous donations of people like YOU!  Their new campaign, five5five for families, kicked off a few months ago and directly benefits five different families each month who are in the process of adopting an orphan (or orphans) with special needs.

From the RR website:  "After 8 years, $7 million in grant funding disbursed, and more than 1500 orphans have found forever families, you KNOW how far your giving goes collectively through Reece’s Rainbow! Set up an auto-bill-pay donation from your bank, or through the PayPal link, to give just $5 a month for our adopting families!"

I just set up David's and my $10 recurring monthly donation to benefit these families and their CHOSEN children.  Although this is not a huge amount, it can be MULTIPLIED if more people will join us.  If you aren't able to do it each month, a one-time donation will also be greatly appreciated!!  Your amount does not have to be $10 ~ it can be more or it can be less.  Please give what you can.  I promise you, God will USE YOUR GIFT!!

Your gift is truly the gift of LIFE, HOPE, and a FAMILY for an orphaned child with Down syndrome [and/or other special needs].  Your support for this organization throughout the year is greatly appreciated.  Should you have any questions, or need to provide us with any additional details about your donation, please do not hesitate to write [or email].  Be sure to browse our website, and discover all the amazing ways you can be a Voice of Hope for our waiting orphans!"


GOD GIVES MOST ~ 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

6 Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;  9 as it is written,

“He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever.”

10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;  11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.  12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.  13 Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all,  14 while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you.  15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
