The Impact of Lunchbox Notes

When I was in the first grade, I remember an interesting story that occurred in my class about lunchbox notes.  We would bring our lunches to school every day and eat at our desks, while our teacher would eat at her desk.  One day, a girl named Emily went up to our teacher with a small folded note and asked if she would read it to her. The teacher looked over the note and began to read it in front of the class.  It was a sweet note written by Emily’s mom. Emily beamed while the teacher read her note and proudly sat back down at her desk to finish her lunch.

Ming Family Highlight: Serving After Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey brought devastation to much of the Houston area with flooded homes, buildings, and loss of basic resources.  An abundance of help was needed, and many felt led to go out and serve those in need.  One of those families was the Ming family.  With eight kids and a new baby, they had every excuse NOT to help, but because they are a family that prioritizes serving others, they put their kids to work and found ways to bless those who needed assistance.

Erkmann Family Highlight

A year ago my family was blessed to meet the Erkmann family when we attended a World Vision walk to raise money for clean water. As we drove up to the race, we were delighted to find a family of smiling kids passing out necklaces and race bibs as others prepared for the walk.  The Erkmanns have SUCH a heart for the poor around the world and involving others to make a difference.  Our family was touched by their servant hearts and the overall mission of the walk!

Rollins Family Highlight: Hope Family Care Ministries

The Rollins family has been very dear to our family for the last few years, and we are always touched to  learn how God uses them to share God’s love with others in the most difficult of times.  It amazes me how even their kids take initiative and find ways to reach out to hurting kids through the ministry!  I have asked them some questions to find out more about their ministry and how kids can get involved in serving through it.
