TD @ SCC Solo Tour Concert at The Wiltern – 4/12/19
SCC Concert at the Hsiehs’ for Show Hope
What an amazing time together at the Steven Curtis Chapman Solo Tour at the Wiltern! Thank you, Show Hope! Our family is so glad you got to hear his heart, his story, his ministry, and his music (and his ridiculous guitar skills!).
As I always say, when you have a chance to be around greatness, seize it. Though many of you had never heard of him (though he’s had over 50 #1 hits, has over 70 Dove Awards, 5 Grammy Awards, etc.), you were willing to see the big picture and be open to new experiences and opportunities. Many of you expressed how unexpectedly blessed you were.
As SCC was sharing about his family’s own adoption journey and the work at Show Hope, like many of you, I had tears in my eyes. Helping kids that don’t have families is a work that God wants us, His church, to be involved in. At TD, we have done that through Voiceless For the Voiceless (V4V), visiting the orphanage each month, serving at summer camps for orphans in China, and with our monthly sponsorships of 4 boys in Africa (through Rafiki) and 3 Show Hope sponsorships in China (many of you are behind in your pledges. Please bring them up to date).
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
Please seriously pray through how God wants to use you to help reach kids without families. It’s not whether He wants you to help (He does); rather, it’s how He wants you to help. Please talk with your small group leaders to discuss the opportunities!
