Battle and Blitz Day 19, May 7

Day 19 of Mission Boss Your Heart Memorial Blitz, Focus #3: Backing the Blocks (Missionaries serving orphans in Guatemala)

Day 19 of Chrissie's 31-day battle, May 7, 2010:  Post 1 (shingles confirmation), Post 2 (lungs bleeding), Post 3, Post 4, Post 5 (grrrrrrr)

Yesterday, the Blocks moved into their temporary residence, and we're praying that God will quickly raise up an army of 147 supporters who will back the Blocks with a monthly pledge of $25 so they can get to Guatemala sooner rather than later.  The Boss Your Heart Memorial Blitz, in memory of our Princess Chrissie, will be focusing on helping the Blocks with the "Back the Blocks" blitz through Monday, May 9.  That means we just have 3 days to get 120 more commitments of people willing to "Back the Blocks" with a monthly pledge of $25.

Will you please help us find the remaining 120 supporters?  I have a feeling God's already got them picked up, we just have to spread the word so every ear can hear and every eye can see.  God will take care of the rest.

When our Chrissie was in the hospital last spring, God performed countless miracles.  Some of those miracles were so crazy and radical that sometimes we felt like we were in a dream.  But it wasn't a dream, it was real.  God still performs miracles daily, and we experienced miracle after miracle first-hand last spring at this same time, as we sat by our daughter's side, as she fought for her life following her open-heart surgery.  Even though God chose to take Chrissie Home to live with Him, after she battled for  her life for 31 days straight, God's miracles during that time should not be overlooked, questioned, or doubted.  God is alive and active, and He undoubtedly performs miracles today.

Raising up a total of 147 families to back the Blocks with an ongoing pledge of $25/month may not seem possible to some.  Some might think there's no way that we could get that many families to make that type of commitment, especially in just one week!  Well, I say let's all pray for God to show His mighty hand and raise up an army of 147 commitments by Monday, May 9!  God CAN do this.  We must be His hands and feet to spread the word, we must pray diligently, and we ourselves must be an example by making our pledge to "Back the Blocks". 

Oh what a party of rejoicing it will be when we see God's army of 147 fully chosen, committed, and marching alongside the Blocks, backing them financially, and praying them to Guatemala!  Please join His army today by backing the Blocks!  Click HERE to make your pledge today!  (Donations are tax-deductible.)

Don't forget, if you make a pledge, it's super important that you click HERE to let me know that you pledged.  I am keeping a tally of the number of people who join the team to "Back the Blocks", but the only way for me to keep an accurate count is to have supporters leave me a comment when they make a pledge.  Also, when you leave a comment, you'll be entered in a giveaway!  Fun!

Praying you'll all have a blessed weekend, and praying that God's team of people who are backing the Blocks will grow abundantly over the weekend so that we can rejoice in His miracles on Monday!  Spread the word!  Pray!  Give!

"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."  ~2 Corinthians 6-8
