Dear Friends,

You can make a difference in children's lives near and far!

The kids at the Faith In Deeds Children’s Home have all been through tough times. Many of them have lost their parents or have lived on the streets. Now, by God’s grace, they have found a loving family at the Faith In Deeds Children’s Home. Here they make friends, have pets and toys. They love to play sports and do art. They are allowed to be kids, growing in a healthy environment. They are all getting a good education … especially about Jesus’ never-ending love for them.

With cramped bedrooms, and not nearly enough bathrooms, it’s easy to see that their current rental building is too small. It also means that when one child gets sick other children are much more likely to get sick. We’ve done our best with rental buildings for 13 years, but now it is time to build them a home. We’ve already finished the foundation. You can see the progress under the building video updates.

Will you consider contributing a little bit of your time and talents to help finish the construction of the new home?!

In reading the Feeding of the 5000, found in Matthew 14:13-21 and John 6:1-14, we note that:
  • Jesus felt genuine compassion for the people.
  • Jesus already had a plan to feed the people, but He still challenged His disciples.
  • The disciples felt overwhelmed by the need they faced.
  • A boy gave 5 loaves and 2 fish (which seemed insignificant).
  • Jesus blessed the boy’s offering and gave thanks.
  • All of the people ate until they were filled - and there was more leftover.

We give thanks to Jesus that He cares for us and that He is able to provide for our needs. Please begin with prayer and ask the Lord to bless your ‘loves and fish’, whatever you may have to offer. Pray that the people who participate would be blessed of God and that you and your children will also grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus.

Then have fun! Get creative with your own ideas for a lemonade stand, a bake sale, collecting change/pop cans, or a garage sale that will benefit these children. Make signs, share our website www.faithindeeds.org, and take photos and share on social media with #FIDKidsHelpingKids #faithindeeds

Whatever the outcome is of your event, we and all of our kids would love to hear about it! We pray that you will be blessed in your doing, and that Jesus name be praised! 

With Gratitude,
Thomas & Dana Mollhagen for Faith In Deeds
