IT’S A BIG GIVE!
But how wrong I was!! To my shock (and shame), instead of asking me to give away my $10.00 bill, my Pastor walked right up to me and gave me ANOTHER $10!
Then he challenged each of us to multiply our original bill, be it a $1, a $5, or a $100 bill… Multiply it with the help of my friends, my family and everyone that I come in contact with.
He challenged me to multiply my money until Dec. 17th – and on Dec. 17th, it will be my charge to take all of the money that I’ve raised and help another with it. It could be an organization, a charity or a stranger on the street that I just walk up to and bless!
How cool is that? I love the idea and now, I’m asking you if you would like to help me out and help me multiply this money.
All I need is a $10.00 match (or what ever you can give) – and I promise you that every cent will be given to someone (or more than one) in real need. And I just know that through this, you will be blessed just like I am!
I don’t know yet how the Lord is going to have me use this money, but I continue to pray over it and know He will reveal exactly how he wants it used. My heart continues to think of the children out there - and I remain patient on God's direction.

My husband has accepted the challenge as well, and together I think we are over $285 with payments and pledges! Will you consider helping me multiply it to $500 or maybe even more?
I’m only asking for a $10 match, and only if you have it to spare…
If you would like to be a part of it, just drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please remember I will need to have it by the 17th of Dec
Thanks so much!
PS: I will keep you posted each step of the way - and would you also pray with me that God will give us clear vision on how to make the most of this blessing for others?
