Birthdays, for many, are a joyous occasion of celebration! It’s a time to celebrate the completion of another year of life! There are some specific birthdays that have added significance for us as well… a first birthday, a sweet sixteen, turning 18, the first quarter of a century (25th), over the hill (40th), half a century (50th), the 75th, and some even live to the very special 100 year mark!
I am not 100 years old, but I shall soon be going over the hill… That’s right! I will be turning 40 on November 27th! WOW! That guy is getting up there in age! Hehehee!
As I think of birthday wishes and what I hope for this year, I really have one longing for my birthday! I want my birthday to be a day when I can celebrate the victory of helping a newly widowed Guatemalan woman, Brenda, and her three precious children, to be able to have a home and property that will truly be theirs!
We have a Help for Brenda Campaign to raise support to enable Brenda and her children to have a home and place of safety to live. As I do not, myself, have a family, I generally do not receive much in way of gifts for my birthday. But, as this will be my 40th birthday, I am asking any and all, who would find the kindness in their heart to do so, to give a special birthday gift to me by donating $40 to Abogar and noting that it is a birthday gift that will be directly applied to the Help For Brenda Campaign! You will receive a tax receipt for your donation, and if we can raise the ~$8,800 that we need to by the end of the year, and then ~$2,500 before the end of April, 2019, we each will have actively participated in helping the widow and the fatherless (James 1:27)! This is my greatest desire for my 40th birthday!! Maybe someone would even donate generously, above and beyond, to enable to give a birthday party for the whole family too!!
Would you be willing to say ‘Happy Birthday Jesse!’ by donating $40 to help me help Brenda and her precious children? Please visit abogarim.org/support today to make your donation! Please specify that it’s a birthday gift for Jesse and we will be sure that it gets directly applied to our Help For Brenda Campaign! (You are not limited to $40, as any amount will be greatly appreciated!)
