  1. I went on a mission to Guatemala for my church in 1980-1981. It changed my life. I was able to serve those beautiful people and it was a privilege. Although I grew up in a home where we served others all the time (my mother made sure of it!), I was able to do this 24/7 and it really changed me! I have lived other places around the world but that experience really meant a lot to me because it was so unique. My husband and I make sure that we contribute to charities on an ongoing basis AND we donate time and goods. It is something that we decided on when we got married and we involved our kids when they lived at home. Linda, I am so excited about your book! I love this series and can’t wait to continue with the characters! It would be great to win it too!

  2. Erin, I covet your prayers for the ministry trip next summer. Ukraine is not an easy place to be. Communism and darkness still reigns, and the poverty, alcoholism, street children, and human trafficking are rampant. Oh, and they don’t much like Americans. 🙂 But those kids are His Kids, too, and we want to be His hands extended.

  3. Lacy, one of my sons has done missions work in Mexico and Haiti. He says the poverty just across our borders stunned him. Bless your church for caring!

  4. Terri and Julie,
    Compassion International, the City Rescue Mission, and the Humane Society are all great charities. That there are so many wonderful groups doing good, it just shows the depth of kindness and caring in people, something that is often overlooked because of the “bad” news on TV.

  5. Hi Robin,
    I’ve volunteered at the Regional Food bank before but had never heard of Project 66. It still shocks me, though I guess it shouldn’t, to know there are people in America without enough food. You are awesome for sharing Jesus, as well as food, with those in need.

  6. Battered women shelters are wonderful places. I am so thankful that women have a place to go to get out those situations today. In the past, they just suffered in silence. Thank you, Melissa, for caring!

  7. I like to help battered woman and children shelters. I do not like to see women in situations that they feel they cannot get out of.

  8. My charity would be Hospice because they helped so many of my loved ones during the end of their journey.

  9. Great post, Linda. And that sounds like a great charity. Lately, I’ve been volunteering a couple of times a month at the food bank in Arcadia, OK, called Project 66. One day every week, the food bank opens its doors to anyone in need. I have the great pleasure and privilege of visiting with and praying for the guests when they come in the doors. While many of the stories are heartbreaking, there is hope in these folks’ eyes, hope because the people who started P66 had the desire to not only distribute food, but to share the gospel of Christ. It’s a little place that does a lot of good.

  10. Linda – what a great charity! I hope you and your daughter enjoy your missions work next summer. My favorite charities are The City Rescue Mission and The Humane Society. I’m impressed by how City Rescue provides meals, housing, and ministry to those in need. And as an animal lover I admire HSUS’s work.

    No need to enter me in the drawing. I already have a copy of this fabulous book!

  11. Linda, you are a sweet and amazing woman of God. I love your heart for orphans! Thanks for sharing about HK2. I pray God blesses that ministry in mighty ways.

  12. Don’t enter me – I’ll be buying a copy of the book. You have an inspirational story, Linda, and I’m excited you got to share about it today. Will be praying for your trip next year! Although it isn’t really a charity, my church does a lot for the needy. One of my favorite programs is sending small gifts to kids at a sister church in Mexico at Christmastime. Great post, Linda!

  13. Sounds like a wonderful organization. I love supporting Compassion International. They do great work all over the globe helping children who live in poverty.

  14. My favorite charity you ask That is easy It is helping the people around me, showing Gods light to them. God bless you and what you do
