Serving in Pajamas [Choosing Joy by K. Albers]
This week we are all snowed in. Streets are white, schools are closed, and the weatherman says it’s only going to get colder as the week continues. But, it’s February and my family made a commitment to do a service project each month. How can we serve the Lord, but stay safe and warm from this winter storm?
Praise God because this Friday, February 20th, Mentor Kids Kentucky is asking us to stay inside with our families and spend quality time together while supporting their mission to love at-risk kids by pairing them with Christian adults as mentors. Mentor Kids Kentucky is sponsoring their very first “Unbanquet” fundraiser. Rather than a fancy fundraising dinner banquet as they have done in the past, Mentor Kids is asking donors to purchase a Family Night package and then stay home for a movie night in honor of their program. Donors will receive a special treat in the mail and the option to put on their pj’s early! What could be better?
"Pure and undefiled religion, according to God the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their distress." James 1:27
Choose joy this week and cherish the beauty of the seasons!
