$6 FOR 1 Challenge TAKEN!

A couple of months ago, Angela Wells, contacted Into the Streets of Ethiopia about using our new $6 For 1 campaign in their upcoming Vacation Bible School.   What an honor for us to be highlighted at Graefenburg Christian Church's VBS!  

"June 27th - July 2nd, 38 children attended Graefenburg Christian Church's High Seas Expedition Vacation Bible School.  During the week, we learned that God's Word is true, comforting, surprising, life-changing, and for everyone.  With their adult crew leaders, the children discussed that one way to introduce others to God's Word and His love is to meet their physical needs.  The children didn't just talk about how to demonstrate love to others but through their hands and giving they truly got involved.  Twenty blankets were made to be given to the boys involved in the Children's Future Ethiopia program.  The children gathered with their crews and prayed over each blanket and for its recipient to know and feel the warmth of God's love.  In addition, the children collected $451.15 for Into the Streets of Ethiopia and many committed continual support through the $6 for 1 campaign.  We enjoyed a fun, wonderful, blessed week on the High Seas, but most importantly, the children learned that they could truly be the hands and feet of Jesus and minister to others.....  even those far across the sea!!!!

URGENT Need in Ethiopia!

 "To be happy with God on earth presupposes certain things:  to love the way he loves; to help the way he helps; to give the way he gives; to save the way he saves; to remain in his presence twenty-four hours a day; to touch him in the poor and in those who suffer."
Mother Teresa

Dinah Monahan, is one of America’s greatest pro-life leaders. Besides setting up more than 30 maternity homes in America and her first in Ethiopia, she is using her pro-life warehouse to ship formula into the suitcases of people traveling into Ethiopia. It is saving the lives of precious starving babies in four of Ethiopia’s orphanages, some in remote areas.  

Dinah is running low on formula and that’s where YOU come in: There are hungry babies in Ethiopia and we can help them.

30, 000 children will die TODAY of hunger and preventable diseases.

"If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
Mother Teresa

Your donation of formula will make a difference to one.   The gift of formula can be a life-saving instrument to a lonely, vulnerable child.

Would you give?

For the next 24 hours, Into the Streets of Ethiopia, is partnering with We are That, in efforts to raise awareness and support of formula and/or financial donations being sent to Arizona (then on to Ethiopia!) 

Here is how you can get involved:

Please leave a comment with how many of the large cans of Wal-Mart (milk based only, no soy), you can send to this address:
Heritage House ’76, Inc.
919 So. Main St.,
Snowflake, AZ  85937
If you do not have a Wal-Mart near you, you can purchase a Wal-Mart gift card online and have it sent directly to the address above. Please make sure you make a notation that it is for formula in the Notes.
{from Dinah: "We will send the formula with work crews and adoptive parents as they go over.  We have shipped close to 400 lbs since April but are running out.  Check out the Post Office one price if it fits and see how many cans can fit in a box}
You may also give a financial donation to Into the Streets (via our donation link) and we will send the funds directly to Heritage House.
Into the Streets of Ethiopia is starting this off by giving the first $500 from our feed the children budget.  *** What a great summer family project this could be!  Take your kids to Wal-Mart and explain what one can of formula could do for a child living in Ethiopia.  Give them a tangible opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus!  ***
