WE ARE FULL WITH CHaRA – JOY!
THANK YOU FOR A BEAUTIFUL SUCCESSFUL BIRTHING HOPE CELEBRATION
As I read Anne Voskamps statement in One Thousand Gifts I felt it best explained the depth of our thanksgiving to each of you for joining us to Birth Hope in the lives of outcast girls. “In the original language, ‘He gave thanks’ reads ‘eucharisteo’. Jesus took bread and saw it as grace and gave thanks. He took the bread and knew it to be a gift and gave thanks. Eucharisteo, thanksgiving, envelopes the Greek word for grace, charis. But it also holds its derivative the Greek word chara, meaning joy. Deep chara joy is found only at the table of euCHRISTeo- the table of thanksgiving. Is it that simple? Is the height of my chara joy dependent on the depth of my eucharisteo thanks?“
Every dollar goes a long way to help us build the Birthing Hope Center and then to care for young women and their babies that will be born at this Center. Our mission is to provide a loving home and education or vocational training for young women who are victims of rape and abuse. Left alone they will be homeless and their babies often abandoned. The Birthing Hope Center will position them for a bright new future. They will leave filled with joy. You will share in the blessing of saving lives and God will receive all the glory, honor and praise.
Sharing the Birthing Hope Dinner Celebration with friends and family was a wonderful evening that we will never forget. Ten years ago we started with a quart bag filled with clean birth supplies. Now we are building a Center to birth babies and care for abandoned girls. God keeps surprising us with wonderful adventures to help others. Thank you from the depths of our hearts. We are simply filled with CHaRA!
Love, Ron & Carol
