A great online blogger friend donated three tshirts to our adoption fundraising goals and I had three books that never got to their originally intended "receivers" a while back, so I will be putting up one tshirt and one book together as a set to be auctioned together.
Up first, the book, Red Letters by Tom Davis. If you have not already read this book, it is a MUST read! It's amazing!
Here's the product description...
In many Bibles, Christ's words are set apart with a red font. It should be obvious, but this distinction helps remind us that when God becomes Man and that Man speaks - it's probably something we cannot afford to miss. So why doesn't the Church take these "red letters" to heart? Why aren't we doing more to be Christ's hands and feet to the poor, the disenfranchised, the weary, the ill, the fatherless, the prisoners? It's all there - in red letters. Why has the Church shirked its responsibilities, leaving the work to be done by governments, rock stars, and celebrities? The Gospel wasn't only meant to be read - it was meant to be lived. From the HIV crisis in Africa to a single abused and lonely child in Russia, the Church must seize the opportunity to serve with a radical, reckless abandon. Author Tom Davis offers both challenge, encouragement, and resources to get involved in an increasingly interconnected, desperate modern world.
Tom Davis is an author, consultant, and the president of Children's HopeChest (www.hopechest.org) a Christian-based child advocacy organization helping orphans in Eastern Europe and Africa. His first book, the self-published Fields of the Fatherless has sold over 60,000 copies. Tom holds a Business and Pastoral Ministry degree from Dallas Baptist University and a Master's Degree in Theology from Criswell College.
I have three softcovers of Red Letters. If you have read it or already own it, what a wonderful gift and/or special something to pass on to someone in your life.
And finally the tshirts...
These AMAZING hope/Africa tshirts are so great!!! I am so appreciative of Annie from Adding Members! Thank you thank you thank you for your donation! Each shirt is on a light yellow tshirt. Two are size large and one is extra large. I simply love the design!!!
Since these items are already "here", every penny will be going straight into our adoption fund! There will be an additional cost of $2.50 for shipping added on once the auction is over. Please consider one of these sets for yourself, a friend who is beginning an adoption, two loved ones... they are truly awesome! :) Good luck!!! Each set will be posted separately...
This auction will end on Saturday, September 18... happy bidding!
