In November, Mrs. Diane, a missionary out of our church spoke at the ladies meeting. She was talking about several of the programs she has started in the Philippines. The one that really struck my heart was the one for feeding the children. She said for approximately 10 cents a day American money she can feed a child. As many as they feed, they just can't feed all the ones that are hungry.
I just could not get this off of my heart, I realized that for the same price as a kids meal that I think nothing of buying for my grands, you could feed one of these kids for a whole month. I knew I had to do something.
Then God laid an idea on my heart. I teach 4 & 5 year old in Children's church. We are called "Gods Little Froggies". I was at the dollar store and I found a green frog bank similar to the one above and it even counts the money so you know how much you have. My class has adopted a little boy and girl from the program and we are raising dimes and we want to raise enough money each month to feed them. For a 31 day month we only need to raise $6.20 and we can feed them both for a month.
Now will I still buy my grands a kids meal? Yeah, every once in a while I will but I sure look at it differently now. Next time you see McDonald's think about this and if the kids cross your mind, pray we can raise this money or more. God has blessed us so much and I just want to teach my kids to be a blessing back.
