$40 For 40! Happy Birthday Jesse!

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!)

As Founder and Executive Director of Abogar International Ministries, a nonprofit organization, I am excited to share with whomever is interested about the great and mighty work that God is doing through Abogar all throughout Latin America to impact, improve life, and advocate for orphaned children, street children, and youth at risk! Having come from a very hard childhood and being passed through foster care myself, God has caused me to have a tremendously loving and empathetic heart for so many children who find themselves in very horrible situations! For some reason God is drawing my heart and the focus to Latin America specifically.
