The 30-Day Giving Challenge

Posted By Jessica Fisher On November 8, 2009 @ 9:28 am In Giving | 3 Comments


So yes, a week of November is gone – I’ve been stuck in my freezer – but it’s never too late to start giving. Alyssa at Keeping the Kingdom First [5] has a great challenge going to encourage others to give. Check out the details here [6].

The kids and I are reading, Obliged to Go [7], a biography of William Carey, the father of modern missions. He lived and preached in India back in the day (late 1700s/early 1800s) when others thought it was absolutely ridiculous to preach the gospel message to unreached people groups. What an eye-opener this book has been!

One thing that we’ve done this month is sponsor a child through Compassion International [8]. We’ve talked about it for years. The money has been there. Last night it took just a few clicks of a mouse to do something we had put off for far too long. Now we get the chance to help improve the life of a child on another continent. We have such abundance. There’s no reason not to help a child living in poverty. We’re looking forward to getting to know Joseph from Peru in the coming months and years.

So, anyway, pop on over to Alyssa’s blog [4] and be inspired by all the ways you could give to others this month.

P.S. And don’t forget to come back tomorrow and tell us how you’re getting a good habit going [9].
