TD – Help With Supplies For Orphans



On Show Hope’s web site, there is a good, clear article entitled, “What Does The Bible Have to Say About Orphan Care?”  (click to check it out).  It lists 4 biblical mandates: defend, give, visit, and help.  These are areas TD will be growing in engaging in over time (but beginning immediately).  But there are immediate opportunities.

As you know, my family will be traveling with Show Hope to China, and will be visiting most of their care centers, including Maria’s Big House of Hope.  I would like to ask you TD’ers to continue to help with the giving portion of the mandate by getting some supplies for us to bring over.  But you’ll need to act quickly.  Thanks in advance! (also, please give your monthly sponsorship money to your small group intern!) – Arthur

“He who gives to the poor will never want, but he who shuts his eyes will have many curses.” — Proverbs 28:27

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” — James 1:27

Here’s what we need you to bring to TD this Friday:

1. Summer sandals for boys and girls – new or gently used – size 3 to size 9 (for 1-4 year olds)

2. Young children’s toothpaste that can be swallowed – “flouride-free toothpaste” (can use 50 or more of these tubes so great need)

3. Pigeon weaning bottle with spoon for cleft lip/palate babies (available on Amazon)

4. MiraLax Laxative Powders (name-brand or store brand – many babies have gastro issues so many bottles needed regularly)

5. Triple Antibiotic Cream and Antifungal Cream (athlete’s foot cream)

6. Johnson & Johnson Baby Lotion – pump bottles preferred if available

7. Socks for infants and preschool children – size 12 months to size 3T
