Fun Way to Bring Hope to Bring Me Hope! (and see Calvin & Daniel in action!)

Where Love Found Me Movie Support.jpg

Hey TD!

As is the case with many small businesses and small non-profits, our friends at Bring Me Hope (BMH) are trying to find ways to pay their bills.  They have already begun to make budget cuts (including salaries) and are already donating extra time to the ministry.  As you know, they do great work and have been instrumental in helping us at TD work towards defending the fatherless.

Please get the word out and make the most of the opportunity that is before us to still help vulnerable children in Jesus’ Name, even in the midst of being quarantined!

Here’s a fun way to help them out.  Remember the moving movie we watched on V4V Saturday? Well, it’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime, and BMH will get PAID for every minute that is watched.

So, if each of us hosts a movie night for our families, we will be helping BMH keep its doors open to help orphaned children in China.  And if we ask all of our friends and family to watch the movie, we can be an even bigger help!  Pop some popcorn and enjoy!

Please get the word out and make the most of the opportunity that is before us to still help vulnerable children in Jesus’ Name, even in the midst of being quarantined!

Meet Calvin Tong!⁣ ⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐨 𝐯𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐩𝐞?⁣ ⁣ I first considered orphan care when my youth group leader started preaching on the importance of reaching the least of these. As one adopted into the family of God by the blood of Christ, I could not deny the reality that God cared for the voiceless and the defenseless. If my Heavenly Father’s heart was so fixed on the misplaced, the lost, and the helpless, how could I not love them? I saw orphan care as an opportunity for me to extend the hand of Christ to one that was looking for hope and peace in this world. Thankfully, around that time, we became acquainted with Bring Me Hope and eagerly went out to their summer camp in Zhengzhou.⁣ ⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐲𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐞 𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐬 𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩/𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞?⁣ ⁣ Having been to camp for the past 3 years, I can say that the need for positive male role models is huge for these kids. They are crucial in discovering one’s identity and avoiding unhealthy/ delinquent behavior. For you to be there is big for some of these kids because sometimes the only male relationships they have are with fellow peers who can be terrible models for them. ⁣ ⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩?⁣ ⁣ A great memory that I have a camp was 3 years ago when I met these two brothers from a private orphanage. They were aged out and no longer able to be adopted. Though their situation was undoubtedly depressing, it became apparent to me that the brothers held tight to the faith communicated to them by their caretakers. One night, by God’s providence, we were able to sing a worship song together. Reflecting on the lyrics, I realized that though these brothers were deprived of the love of earthly parents, they had experienced the comforting love of their Heavenly Father. Though they had little to lean on this world, they were confident that they were in the powerful hands of Christ. That moment reminded me of the power of the gospel and it’s ability to heal even the most broken hearts. We were able to connect so deep

Meet Daniel Hsieh ⁣⁣⁣⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐨 𝐯𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐩𝐞?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Some friends from my church went to BMH one summer, and when they came back and shared about it, I remember thinking, I gotta go to camp. I knew they experienced something special. Sure, they talked about the challenges and messiness that sometimes accompanies caring for orphaned children and children in general. Sure, there was a language barrier. Sure, it was expensive. But there was an unmistakable smile, a "but it was so worth it" look in their eyes that was bursting from them. Their sharing changed the very energy of the room. I remember feeling chills of excitement just hearing about their time at camp. I was experiencing second-hand joy, and I knew that I wanted to taste it for myself. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐲𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐞 𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐬 𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩/𝐢𝐧 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ So much of life is "caught not taught." Our mirror neurons do a lot of the heavy lifting in our development. For young boys especially, a living role model, an older bro who can affirm them and tell them, "You're a cool kid. I believe in you." — these figures can make deeper impressions than we imagine. They can help tip the scales of self-doubt and feelings of worthlessness. They can be an antidote to messages of shame. If the Chinese saying is true that "a picture is worth a thousand words," imagine the influence exerted on a child by the presence of a positive male figure embodying tangible care and trust.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭'𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐩?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Hector and I were having a lot of fun at the water park in the kids' pool, but I thought it was time he try something more challenging. I pointed to the water slide some fifty feet away and asked him if he wanted to try it. He turned away and said "scary" — fair enough, considering that, compared to him, the slide was huge, and Hector does not have use of his legs. CONTINUED IN COMMENTS

TD Vlog Update #2 – TD Bringing Hope Overseas to Orphaned with Special Needs!

BMH Summer Camp Update from Anabell and Megan

Hey TD!

All summer, TD leaders continue to serve our Father overseas in the Big Country by ministering to orphans with special needs at Bring Me Hope Summer Camps. As you can see, it’s been an amazing time. Please continue to lift them up to our Good Father and pray about what you can do on your end.

Here’s a vlog update from Anabell and Megan who have been moved by the Spirit.

 

 

 

TD Vlog Update – TD Bringing Hope Overseas to Orphaned with Special Needs!

BMH Summer Camp update from Calvin, Daniel, Angela (and Sandra)

Hey TD!

“A Slice of Heaven” – that’s the phrase I have most often heard from those who have served at the Joni and Friends Family Retreat through the years.  These last few years, TD has experienced Family Retreat on steroids with Bring Me Hope’s Summer Camps, where we’ve not only served those with disabilities, but orphaned children with disability … and we’ve done it in the Big Country!  The description used? You guessed it … a slice of heaven.

Here’s a vlog update from Calvin, Daniel, and Angela (interviewed by Sandra), who have had a phenomenal, moving, life-impacting time.

 

You Can Help Bring Hope to Orphans in China This Summer

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2Cor. 9:6-7

Hey TD!

As you know, we have a team (Calvin, Megan, Sandra, Daniel, Angela, Anabell) going to China this summer to help serve orphans (many of whom have disabilities) and share God’s love with them at a summer camp run by Bring Me Hope (BMH).  Our team will be doing just that, bringing them hope, real hope, God’s hope.

At camp, there will be therapy stations to help kids express themselves and help improve some of their motor, cognitive, sensory processing, and play skills.  The camp is in need of the materials to make this happen.  That’s where you come in.

Even though you won’t be physically going to China yourself, your heart, prayers, and tangible support can go!  Here’s how.

1. Click on the shopping list below and purchase items for our team to bring with them:

Bring Me Hope Summer Camp Wish List

You can bring the items to TD or Sunday School and give them to Megan or Calvin any time in June (the sooner the better).

2. You and your family (or a few fellow TD’ers/friends) can chip in and sponsor a child to go to camp.  The number of sponsorships  are down so far this year from last year, so your help would make a difference for a child!

Sponsor an Orphan

Let’s go and make a difference, TD!  Let’s bring God’s hope and let’s love and give in His most generous Name! It’s not only our duty, it’s our joy!

 

Summer Trips Deadlines Approaching

***TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. INQUIRE VERY SOON!***

Hey TD!

One thing that made Los Angeles Lakers legend, Magic Johnson, one of the best basketball players of all time was his resolve to continue to get better each year; and the summer is when he went to work on adding new dimensions to his game before each new season.

Summer is an awesome opportunity to for you to “up your game” too. Whether it’s going overseas or staying in the US to serve others in Christ’s Name (and growing immensely in the process) or going to a special conference focused on helping to equip you better for the journey ahead, prayerfully consider how you can make the most of this summer to grow in honoring the Lord.

Here are some trips to consider that some fellow TD’ers and TD leaders will be participating in – Bring Me Hope’s Summer Camp, RZIM’s ReFresh Conference, and our very own Youth Summer Missions Project (YSMP). Check them out below:

Bring Me Hope Summer Camp 2019

Week 1: July 8 – 12 (Hsiehs, Calvin)

Week 2: July 15 – 19 (Calvin)

Week 3: July 22 – 26 (Megan, Calvin)

Week 4: July 29 – August 2 (Megan, Calvin)

TO LOVE

Our five day summer camps center around bringing forgotten children out of orphanages to experience a week of fun, love, and attention. This often includes many firsts for the kids—their first time swimming, eating ice cream and hearing “I love you”. Demonstrating God’s love in action is what camp is all about.

TO DEFEND

Most overseas trips end when you fly home, leaving you with only memories and pictures. However, our desire is for you to continue to have an impact long after you’ve left camp. Through our advocacy program, you can bring awareness to your child’s needs and even help find adoptive families. Our goal is to equip volunteers to defend vulnerable children.

DAY 1: The kids are coming! Today, you become a proud “parent” as you and your translator(s) are paired with 1-2 children to form a family group. Spend the day getting to know each other before you begin an amazing week of camp!

DAY 2-4: Let the fun begin! Camp is filled with activities for your family group to enjoy together. From arts & crafts to talent shows to dance parties, this is a week for your child to explore new experiences in a safe environment. You will have the unique opportunity to empower these children and show them unconditional love during camp. These are the moments that Bring Me Hope Camp was created for!

DAY 5: Today is the day that the children go home to the orphanage. It’s a bittersweet celebration of the relationships you’ve created and how far your family group has come in just 5 short days. It becomes more than just the last day of camp; You are left with memories and passion to do something about this orphan crisis.

AFTER CAMP: Bring Me Hope will provide you with the skills and training to make a greater impact on these children’s lives when you fly back home. You will be given the privilege to be an advocate for the children’s needs and help them find adoptive families!

If you have detailed questions about the camp, you can ask Megan, Calvin, Rebecca, Elissa, Sissi, or Abigail, who all have been.  Check out BMH Summer Camp and contact a TD leader if you have interest in going this summer.

“ReFresh: Ready For College?” Conference for High School and College Students

Image result for refresh: ready for college?

Hosted by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM)

July 18-21, 2019 @ The Zacharias Institute in Atlanta, GA

“I’m lost. I’ve gone to find myself. If I should turn up while I’m out, tell myself to wait here.” These words, written on a sign in a bookstore in downtown Atlanta, capture the feeling of displacement that High School and college students across America are struggling with today. We don’t know who we are anymore. In a world swept up in identity politics, our own identities, both as individuals and as Christians, can feel less secure than ever.

This summer, at our annual ReFresh: Ready for College? conference, we will be addressing the question that Jesus himself once asked his disciples: “Who do you say that I am?” This was the most important question that the disciples had to answer, and our response to this same question remains just as critical for our own lives. Truth, justice, morality, sexuality, freedom, meaning, love, identity: everything that we care about, everything that we live for, all of these are grounded by the answer to that one question. To know Jesus is to know ourselves. Only when we are confident of who he is can we be sure of who we are, and what he has called us to.

So if you’re a junior or senior in High School or a college freshman, then don’t miss the opportunity this coming June to get time away with each other, with members of the RZIM speaking team, and most importantly of all, with God.

 

Check out ReFresh: Ready For College for more info and contact a TD leader if you are interested.

YSMP 2019

ysmp 2

YSMP is our youth short-term mission trip to the Native American reservations in Arizona. The dates are July 5-13, 2019 and the cost is $170 per person. Our two-fold purpose and prayer for this mission trip is:

1) To participate in the proclamation of God’s glory in the gospel by bringing annual short-term support the local church pastors and congregations within the Native American Reservations in Arizona. Our aim is to hear the needs and vision of the local church pastor and assist the church with our team.

2) To provide a learning experience for our youth and other church members who want to explore cross-cultural missions. We desire for participants to get a sense of the devotion to Christ, training, focus, and flexibility it takes to be on mission, to be challenged to share their faith, and to have their eyes opened to the need for the gospel in less-reached areas.

Each year the YSMP coordinators touch base with each church in the reservation sites to see what kind of support they would like from the STM team. Generally, what that support takes form in:

1) VBS and Youth Camp

2) Visitations and Evangelism

3) Adult Bible Studies

4) Work Projects and Harvest Night

Prayerfully consider joining us on this short-term mission trip! If you have any questions, contact Robert at bobert.chan@gmail.com.

You Can Be a Bring Me Hope Intern!

Intern Openings (1)

Hey TD’ers!

Is God calling you to … grow deeper in faith? … do more for Him with your life? … equip yourself with more ministry skills? … If so, a one year internship with Bring Me Hope may be for you!

Last year, Angela, Sissi, Megan, Calvin, and Aileen spent a year interning with BMH. It was a year well-spent and much more productive than most internships.

Here’s what Angela and Calvin have to say:

“Heading into Senior year, I was wondering if my schedule would allow me to participate in this internship, as it takes commitment and dedication of time and energy. Yet looking back, I am very thankful I did so. It was an enriching experience that opened my eyes to the larger vision of orphan care as well as the practical aspect of nonprofit work. Being able to do hands-on work and take ownership of the ministry, become apart of the Bring Me Hope team, and further what God’s already doing is a priceless opportunity. One of my favorite parts was being assigned a specific child from camp (for me, a 10 yr old boy named Zander) and then learn how to go about advocating for him/her to be adopted.
This internship has given me the chance to step out of my comfort-zone for the benefit of another, and for that I am grateful. I pray you will be open to God’s leading, and will actively participate in this sacred work – caring for the the fatherless – in whatever capacity you can.”
-Angela
—–
“Being the only intern with a Y chromosome, I was afraid things would be super awkward for me. However, I was totally welcomed into the BMH family. I was super encouraged by the heart my sisters had for God and for orphans. This internship is a commitment, but so worthwhile! It gives you so much insight into a non-profit and grows your heart for the orphan crisis. Moreover, it gives you a way to help tangibly and empowers you not just now but for the future! This is stuff that you won’t learn in college or high school :). Don’t miss out on it! “
– Calvin

TD Vlog/updates – Bringing Hope to the Orphaned in China

Thursday BMH Summer Camp update from Megan

Friday BMH Summer Camp update from TD’ers (missing Rebecca & Tammy)

Hey TD!

Some of our team from China have returned from serving the orphaned at Bring Me Hope’s Summer Camp at Zhengzhou, while some are still on their way. For Megan, Calvin, Sissi, and Elissa, it was their second straight year serving these precious children in our Father’s Name and love. It was Rebecca’s and Tammy’s (a TD alum) first year. Again, it was a life-impacting trip.

Here are a couple of updates:

“My heart breaks over these kids, seeing how trauma has affected the way they sleep, interact, and play. One kid won’t go anywhere without his water bottle. He would have a cow if his translator takes it away; and I wonder … is he like this because there was a time in his life he went without water for days …? One of my girls gets violent when she’s happy/excited … I spun her around and then she bit my ear!!!! I see potential of so much growth – if only they had families!” – Megan

“Having dealt with all types of behaviors and disabilities at work, I was not expecting anything too surprising for the first day. After lunch on the first day, one of my girls led us to the convenience store and started grabbing a snack and a drink, but we said she could not have them. She fell to the ground and had a tantrum. That was surprising to me. She also did not have verbal expression so she communicated by vocalizing and gesturing. With the language barrier, I had a harder time being firm with her. By the third day, all the volunteers were pretty exhausted and various difficulties have come up. However, that afternoon during break, I read Mark 4:35-41 which was the story of Jesus calming the storm. It reminded me that God is sovereign over all things, even nature, our hearts, and just everything happening at the camp. For these children as well, their lives may be a storm and there is so much uncertainties for their future. What will happen with them after the camp? Will they ever be adopted? Will they have a good family? Will they be ok in the future? Will they come to know God? Will they recognize His love for them? Yet I can hope in the fact that God is sovereign and compassionate over their lives. Being a little bit older, I tried to view things more as a parent. Usually, at work, I would want to have the kids do things as independent as they could – like dressing, putting away their dishes, picking up their trash, etc. But I thought about, what would a parent do? Maybe they would want them to be independent but maybe they also would show love by serving them by dressing, putting away their dishes, picking up their trash, etc. I am thankful that we got to spend the time in China for a week to “visit the orphans”. We may ask, what does God want us to do and what can we do? This camp was an active way of obeying what God wants. It is His grace to have commanded us to visit the orphans. He has not forgotten them.” – Tammy (TD alum)

 

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” – James 1:27

2018 ReFresh Graphics_Screen2

Hosted by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM)

July 24-27, 2018 @ The Zacharias Institute in Atlanta, GA

 

Are you a high school upperclassman or a college freshman? Then don’t miss out on ReFresh. As students, you know what it’s like to be surrounded by questions. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed. In the face of so many questions, how can you keep your faith strong? Are you prepared to answer the questions and objections of your friends and classmates? At ReFresh, no question is off limits, whether questions asked from within the Christian faith, or questions from those without faith. We want to give you the space to think through some of the toughest challenges to Christianity and equip you to live out your faith at high school and on campus. You will have the opportunity to interact with and learn from Ravi Zacharias and many other members of RZIM’s Global Speaking Team. ReFresh is designed for students, youth groups, and their leaders.

Video – TD’ers at Bring Me Hope Summer Camp 2017

Hey TD!

Here’s that great video our Bring Me Hope team showed at TD on Friday (thanks Megan!). I’ve been singing this song all day today (ok, maybe not singing, since I don’t speak Chinese, but definitely humming!). Study the faces of the orphaned children and consider what their lives may be like.  Look at their joy, pride, … and dignity, and then please say a word of prayer for the millions of orphaned children they represent.  Then begin praying what future part you will have in His story in the lives of some of this world’s orphaned.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27

TD’s Final Summer Meeting – Look Inside!

Image result for end of summer

Hey TD!

Wow, summer has swept by! Come join us for our final summer TD meeting! In addition to worshiping our God in song and having fun with each other, we have more:

  • Praise God! Most of our Bring Me Hope team is back from the Big Country after serving orphaned children at the Bring Me Hope summer camp! Come hear their stories, see their pics and videos, and catch their passion as they share with us what God is doing for orphaned children through BMH in the Big Country … and what He may be leading some of you to do in the future.
  • Aileen and Ashley have also returned from Taiwan after living at an orphanage for most of the summer.  They too will be sharing what God did in their lives and what He’s doing for orphaned children in Taiwan.
  • Last, but not least, Friday is our last time to hang out with Clara at TD before she defects … errr … moves on to serve at BASIC :), so make sure you come and sit next to her this week!
