The ECHO Project

It's been a while since I posted about The ECHO Project, our new non-profit that we started to help meet the physical needs of those we work with, but God has done some amazing things through people who have joined us in being a voice to those in need.

*Creek Kids on Mission, from Sugar Creek Baptist in Houston, raised over $4000 by collecting change to help a young boy in need of an operation.

*A sorority from the University of Texas donated over $1400 to help put a young woman through trade school after finishing high school in Zimbabwe.

*An apartment manager donated in the name of all of his renters for Christmas.

And the list goes on. We are so blessed by the generosity of those who have given and who are helping to make a difference.

Just recently, we were able to give $900 toward uniforms so some of our orphans in Zimbabwe could go to school.

But the needs continue.

Yesterday, Scott spent the day out in the village and while he was there he met a young boy who was ten, but looked about five or six. He clearly needed better nutrition and help with his physical needs. This is exactly who we want to help. To make a difference in the lives of people we come in contact with who have needs, both spiritually and physically.

We've recently started a blog in connection with our website where you can sign up (on the top right hand corner) for the posts to come directly to your mail box. I'll also be sharing updates from time to time on this blog as to what God is doing through this ministry.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” Proverbs 31:8
