12 Kids and Pennies

a need: A typhoon hit the community where Rodean lives (our youth group's sponsored child.)

a lesson: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was the real deal for the Israelites, except with Manna. Today, God provides for us so that we may provide for others. (Our Children's Church lesson 1st-6th grade)

a response: 12 children + 6 weeks + pennies = $73.64 + $73.64 (our church board matched their total- yay for them rewarding a child's faith!) = $147.28

*the best is that these kiddos gave what they had and for some it was just a quarter they found at McDonald's and nickels from school*

Yeah! The students almost tripled their goal with their Compassion Cups! I wish you could've heard their cheers (and little happy dances!)

The total was sent electronically last week, so it may be in his family's hands now.
Looking forward to hearing how God continues to supply Rodean's family's needs...
Thanks to all the kids, their parents, Pastor Charles, and the board for allowing us to do this.

i know! they were so excited!

i take it you've seen the movie? i almost took selah, but decided against it. she is really sensitive about stuff and a giant meatball squashing someone might send her over the edge.

you liked it though? maybe when she's older...
