Send #scripturedoodle to Thailand

$3,000 of $3,000 goal

God gave me the idea about three years ago for #scripturedoodle- a quick illustration of a bible verse. I first thought it was just for me, but God has shown me #scripturedoodle is not just for my artist heart but it is for everyone, for people wanting to explore God's word in a creative way. As we are all allowed to sing in church we all have the freedom to try art in worship. Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Three years later God is using #scripturedoodle to put hope in the hearts of children in Thailand. Here's a story about a little girl called "Hope" and her #scripturedoodle shared by a missionary:
"She wrote Ephesians 5:8 (in Burmese). It says "for once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light!" She told me that God put a dream in her heart to start a "Jesus home". When I asked her what she meant, she said, "I want to start a home for children who are unwanted and show them how Jesus is our Savior! At my home they will learn that Buddhism can never save them, only Jesus gives light and life!" And she is only 11 years old!! 

Hope, like the 149 other children, is an orphan. She is part of the Mercy home orphanage where she receives care from missionaries. Sending her a #scripturedoodle starter pack will not save her life, it won't even feed her, but it will bring her hope. It will be hers and it will help her dream, and as a child, I think that's a need, a treasure, a sweet privelege of  being young. And if she can learn the hope of Jesus at a young age it will carry her through the rest of her days. 

Our goal is to raise $3000 to send 150 #scripturedoodle starter packs to the children of Mercy Home and the Life Impact Centers. Please consider giving today.

Thank you to everyone who has given to help send #scripturedoodle to Thailand! What I love about this initiative is that it takes many hearts to make it happen. This week translators in Thailand will be rewriting the #scripturedoodle study card in the native languages and I will be working with a few gals to silkscreen all 150 canvas bags. Supplies are coming in and it makes everything so real- over the weekend a twenty seven pound box, full of colored pencils, was delivered to my door! Your prayers especially, and your generosity are such an important piece of the puzzle so thank you!

So far we've raised $1910 of our $3000 goal. We'd love to be fully funded by the end of November so we can ship the packs in time to reach the Mercy Home by Christmas. Please consider giving and sharing our story!
