Many of you have been blessed by Delonna’s words here on GSD.com, she is a wonderful addition to our team and has a HUGE servants heart. In fact as you read this she will be boarding a plane or in flight on her way to South Africa for a mission trip!
Today is an extra special day because it is the one year anniversary of her non-profit organization “Clothed in Love“.
Delonna has a heart for the orphan and here is her mission in her own words: “I want orphans and abandoned children to know that someone loves them and God has not forgotten about them. I want to show them TONS OF LOVE by visiting orphanages, sending care packages, provide shelter and supplies, and making donations to families so orphans can find their FOREVER FAMILY. Those desires gave birth to my God Sized Dream of starting an organization called Clothed in Love .”
Delonna makes beautiful jewelry that she sells at her Etsy shop and uses the profits from her sales to sponsor children each month, she also has a desire to one day visit each of her sponsored children in person to love on them in their environment!
I have watched as her numbers have grown and she now sponsors 15 children with a goal of 40! It is a big leap of faith to trust God, each month, that the funds to cover these sponsorships will come in. And I think even Delonna would admit that she has doubts…
Oh this God of ours is Big and Faithful and Amazing! (<=== Click to Tweet)
Delonna is planning a second trip to Africa in July – she was accepted as a part of the Baby Watoto Global Team to travel and visit one of the very orphanages that she sponsors children at! But these trips come with a cost. Delonna has to raise a total of $3500 to cover her expenses. As of today she has $700. It seems a large discrepancy…..
I LOVE how God uses other people to show us how much we are loved…
Delonna was contacted by a donor that wants to remain anonymous. This donor has agreed to match funds up to $1000 for her trip – BUT only for the 24 hour period of April 10th, her one year anniversary!!
If we can help spread the word and raise $1000 for her – that will increase her $1000 to $2000.
I know, you totally get the math – but isn’t it exciting?! If we can help her do this she would be so close to her goal!!
Today I am asking for your help – Delonna won’t have access to the internet for most of the day today…what that means is when she lands in South Africa tomorrow she will be able to see how much God has moved. I have a feeling it is going to be BIG!
If you are able and want to help – find out more at her Pure Charity account. There you can donate away. EVERY dollar counts – every one!
Thank you for loving on my friend here, for being an encouragement and a support to her God-sized Dream.
You are a blessing and are enabling her to be a blessing to orphans….it doesn’t get much better than that does it?!
