I told you all last night about HopeChest's efforts to put together a rescue team for ten girls being held in sexual slavery in India. As I thought last night about what I could give, the Lord began convicting my heart about the "treasures" I have in my life. And this morning, Tom Davis posted an article about what you could give up to help someone else.
My mom bought me a Coach purse a few months ago. I LOVE this bag. It means something to me, it's a gift and I've NEVER used it. It still has the paper stuffing inside. I drug my feet all night. "NO Lord. Please not my purse. My mom gave it to me. It's a gift...." Blah. Blah. Blah. All night I gave God my excuses. But He was asking for my obedience. It's not just a really cool purse, it's my testament to Him that I will do what I am asked. I can give it up and help someone else.
Do you want it?
For $20, you can buy a chance to win this amazing accessory and give a girl in India the opportunity to be rescued, healed and restored. All you do is go to the Paypal button and donate $20 for each chance you want to enter. Make sure to put in the notes section "India rescue".
But this giveaway just gets better. Once we've raised $350 from this purse, my friends will donate purses of their own ranging from Coach, Bramin, Louis Vitton, Kate Spade or Prada. You won't know which one is coming next, as each one is a surprise and we'll continue auctioning them off until you are sick of buying. Please spread the word! We still need about $7000 to complete this rescue.
Women love a good deal and when a good deal combines with the chance to save a life: well now that equals FABULOUS!
