Give Till It Helps

I saw a sign the other day that read Give till it helps, and I imagined a world that really put that into action.  For many of us, we give because we want to make a difference, but our giving is based on what we don’t want or need, and that’s as far as it goes.  Imagine if all of us gave until it helped!  I’m so grateful for all those who give to SofL…they give until it helps, and it does make all the difference in the world to the lives we serve!

Our team in Honduras recently traveled to a distant area to reach a group of people who are trying to make a difference with little resources and training.  The deaf children in this area had never met a Deaf adult.  Imagine their fascination when they saw the SofL Deaf leaders with their moving hands and silly dramas that were in a language they could comprehend!  One of the parents of these deaf children commented to one of our staff members that he wasn’t sure what the future of his deaf son looked like until he met Orlan, and he was now incredibly hopeful! (Orlan is a SofL Deaf Honduran Missionary who is married to Amanda, another SofL Deaf Honduran Missionary, and they have a hearing son who’s almost 1 year old.) 

Give till it helps.  That’s something we are addicted to doing at SofL, and with our Lord’s help, will never stop!  Thank you to all of you who are a part of what we do, the hope we bring, and the difference we make.
