Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! I enjoying sharing updates about the ways your partnership helps the Living Word Foster Initiative touch lives.
May is foster care awareness month. We, along with, The Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents, tied over 17,000 ribbons in downtown Phoenix for the growing number of children in foster care. This event creates bridges with entities that serve as sponsors to help us be a blessing in the community. Our primary goal continues to be creating an awareness of the need in order to increase the number of good, loving people willing to open their homes as foster parents.
Also in the month of May, Pacific Scientific Energetic Materials Company held an underwear and diaper drive to help with our foster care initiative program. The collected items will be donated to various Child Protective Services (CPS) offices in the east valley area. We are always looking for new sponsors and partners. I greatly appreciate that you share the positive things this ministry is doing to help spread the love of Jesus Christ. Please let us know of any businesses willing to help support our cause to provide resources to the children in foster care. One of our goals is to have a supply closet filled with clothes, diapers, toiletry items and other necessities readily available in the CPS offices.
Here’s what’s ahead: Back Drive is coming up in July. This is a special outreach event that we host each year to ensure children have supplies to start the school year with confidence. Each child receives a back pack with supplies such as pencils, pens, markers, paper and other age/grade appropriate items. Your continued contributions help to make these events possible.
But we can do more. How? We can spread the word of the need to get others involved. As a faithful partner, will you help us gather more people who will support the Living Word Foster Initiative? Will you share with others all the great things we do for these children and the positive impact it has on their tomorrow? We know that God is faithful to supply seed to the sower and multiple the sown seed (2 Corinthians 9:10). Please share the wonderful blessings that God continues to manifest in your life as a result of your partnership.
May God bless you and keep you. Make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you (Numbers 6:24-25). His blessings will overtake your life as you continue to help care for the orphans and widows (Deuteronomy 14:27-29 NET).
In the fullness of His Grace,
Pastor Jason Anderson
