- help the people of Mozambique and Tanzania with seeds, training in modern farming techniques and access to clean water all year round so families can grow their own food, have a more nutritious diet and be less vulnerable to disease and drought.
- provide assistance to families living in poor countries that are hurt by emergencies with food and medical supplies and support the Global Rapid Response Team who get to emergencies around the world within 12-24 hours.
Thank you to those of you who sponsored my famine (which I reported previously in my blog here, here and here). Re-reading these past posts made me realise once again how gracious and merciful our dear Lord is =)To my surprise, I received World Vision's 40 Famine Award - Apple iPod mini music player, which was given to the top 25 money-raisers in Australia. And the interesting thing was, it got to me a day before my birthday. And THAT was the best birthday present! I am VERY happy....it's not because I won an award. It's because many kids were helped as a result of the money raised. I'm really humbled by this great experience from God. It's certainly greater to give than to receive.
I encourage you to STIR your world!
