Ukraine Crisis Disaster Relief

April 20th, 2022 No comments

The conflict in Ukraine has left many people vulnerable and in need of aid.  As we continue to pray for all that are impacted by the invasion and unrest; there are organizations providing opportunities to lend critical support.

MCC is accepting donations for a response in Ukraine.  From their website: “MCC’s response will be focused on longer-term scale up of existing programs that support vulnerable people and extending those services to internally displaced populations. It will likely include psychosocial support and trauma healing, temporary emergency housing, emergency distributions of locally purchased emergency supplies such as blankets, and distribution of food packages. MCC also plans to resume shipments of material resources once the in-country conditions are stable enough to do so.”

Samaritans Purse is operating multiple medical facilities in various parts of Ukraine and providing food and non-food relief items through church partnerships in both Ukraine and Moldova.

Hope International has created a Hope Ukraine assistance fund

World Vision  is on the ground in Eastern Europe preparing to meet the needs of vulnerable children and families who have been forcibly displaced due to the escalating crisis in Ukraine.  Your donation can help provide children and families searching for a safe haven with protection and psychosocial support including Child-Friendly Spaces in neighboring countries in the Middle East and Eastern European region.

Mission Eurasia    Has established a Ukraine Emergency Relief Fund to help provide for the urgent, immediate needs of Ukrainians still living in the country, as well as refugees who have fled to neighboring countries.  Hear Fred’s interview with Don Parsons, Director of the Unreached People Groups Initiative here

Barnabas Aid   Sending funds to churches in the neighboring countries as they care for Christian and other refugees.  Barnabas supporters in the United Kingdom are donating food items, blankets and winter clothes, to be transported by van or truck across Europe to the borders of Ukraine to supply the local churches caring for the refugees from Ukraine.

A specific focus of their ministry is on safety and provision for orphaned children and their caregivers.

WJTL Christmas Open House

December 3rd, 2019 No comments

It’s almost time for WJTL’s annual Christmas Open House drop in. You and your family are invited to stop by on Tuesday December 17th anytime between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Come say hi to the WJTL team and visit the studio. There will be cookies and beverages to enjoy (some Chick-fil-A of course). Kids can bring by their KCB tree ornaments to hang on the studio tree if they haven’t sent them in, yet. It’s also a chance to save postage and drop off your end of the year donation if you’d like.

We love this annual tradition and hope you’ll make it yours, too.

A little encouragement can go a long way. Today we received a one sentence note in the mail and it made my day. It was a very simple thank you that was jotted down on a piece of note paper and sent along with a donation. It brought joy to our staff.

Sometimes when we think about being being an encouragement or even a good neighbor; we get visions of a huge time investment or imagine having to bake cookies that live up to some Instagram worthy photo. The reality is that a word, a smile, or a sentence can be enough. I have some thoughtful coworkers that leave post-it notes on my desk just to let me know they were thinking of me.  😀 Those “little” things can make a persons day!

Sometimes we receive encouragement from others and sometimes we need to encourage ourselves! Tough days sometimes stack up more frequently than we like. Reminders of truths from God’s Word, scriptures, songs and even beautiful art or things from nature can inject life into dry bones on any given day.  Recently I jotted a few very simple sharpie written reminders onto some scrap paper and hung them where I could see them at my desk.

  • be positive
  • be joyful
  • be encouraging
  • be thankful

Don’t discount your “little” attempts at bringing light to the world around you.  Each one of us is a difference maker.
