Ways to Love and Help Vulnerable Kids/Families – Rebekah Weigel (CarePortal)

CarePortal presentation w/Rebekah Weigel (video)

Hey TD!

Here’s the video of V4V Friday’s presentation on how we can start getting involved in being the hands and feet of the Lord by helping vulnerable children and families in our communities.  It’s practical, doable, and impactful, and will allow us to further fulfill our calling and mandate to help the vulnerable in Jesus’ Name!  It can be done by any fellowship group, small group, or group of friends.

Rebekah Weigel has a strong passion to see the Church return to the front of child welfare, and has been working to educate and mobilize churches in LA County to care for vulnerable children and families.

She also works with her husband, Josh, in the entertainment industry as a producer and writer.  They have been married 23 years and have fostered and adopted 3 of their 6 children.

CarePortal (a platform of The Global Orphan Project) is a technology platform that connects vulnerable children and families to people who have something to give. Social workers uncover the needs. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond.

Thank you, TD, for such an amazing surprise last week!  Wow, we were blown away and totally taken aback by your kindness, generosity, creativity, depth of thought, and … sneakiness!  We had no idea!  It was a real blessing and real ministry for us.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  We feel humbled and loved.

Now let’s get those girls over here and let’s love ’em as a TD family!  See you at TD!

TD’s Opening Night: Frumpy Friday

Hey TD’ers!  I’m excited to begin our new year together this Friday!  I’m going to open up with a powerful message from Luke 3:1-14 called “John the Baptist: Paving the Way”; we’re going to have our first skit, some honest and real sharing, and a great time of worship.  We want you to join us!  Listen to this invitation! (you’ll have to go on the blog to listen)

But, we need you to come … frumpy.  Yep, frumpy.   Please come in ugly, frumpy clothes.  Don’t do your hair, don’t gel it, no hairspray, don’t blow dry it, don’t shave, don’t put makeup, no bows, no hair clips, no jewelry.  Wear your glasses, not your contacts.  Wear flip flops or old shoes you’d normally only wear around the house when nobody’s around.  We’ll explain at TD!

This will be a great night to bring a friend.  See you Friday!  – Arthur
