we have the tools

Our church is taking part in “Self-Denial” at the moment to raise funds for the poor around the world. Each family has a little toolbox to put the money in.
They didn’t all come with wax seals;-)

This week we had vegetarian dinners so we will be able to donate our *meat money* and today we are eating rice. Rice for breakfast, rice with soy sauce for lunch and rice with veges for dinner. We will be able to give today’s food money too.

While we waited for the rice to cook for breakfast, we talked about and prayed for the people who have to collect their firewood from the forest and water from a well or river before they can even start to cook.

We are doing our dishes in a bowl outside to help us remember them more.

We have done other things too – but Mama said we have written enough – when you give, you should not let your right hand know what your left hand is doing! We didn’t know that.

    I’m very excited to read this! You’ve given us some neat ideas to try too. We’ve been reading a book called “Finding Ajuna” about a sponsor visiting his World Vision sponsored child in Tanzania and we’ve just signed up for their Water Matters programme and got our resources!
