the most important number is 1...

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something:
Yet, just because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can!” – Helen Keller

My dear cousin @ Thomas Lindsey Hooppaw commented on my last post where we were collecting clothing for local elementary children in need, he said “Just so sad that there are that many needs tho.”
It’s true, it is so sad…

But the exciting thing is you can help at least 1

For example: This is a video we did at XC a few weeks ago to raise awareness of adoption.

We have several families at XC who have adopted children from all over. The family @ 3:33 adopted little Faith from Ethiopia a few months ago.

That is 1.

Another family just recently adopted two brothers from Africa.
That is now 1 + 1 + 1
See how that works?

This week we are helping 86 children at a local elementary school in need of basic clothing…
That is 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 +
You get the idea!

The needs of this world seem so overwhelming,
We cannot do everything
But we can do something
Of all the statistics, the most important number is 1
It only takes 1 person to the life of someone forever.
But, the most important number is 1

What is God calling you to do?
Is He calling you to help?
You cannot do everything.
But you can do something….
What will YOU do??
