T-shirt Giveaway!!!!

Do you ever feel lost when you are without your laptops, computers, phones, and all other things gadgety? Well, I have felt that way over the last couple of days. My laptop's system board had to be replaced. It was only gone for a couple of short days, but within it's little plastic casing was all of my precious photos of the last 4-5 years of our lives, my emails, some important and some not-so important documents, and all the email addresses to my friends. Thankfully, my laptop is still under warranty and they came out to our house, fixed it for free, and I am back up and running!!!! Ahhhh, feels good!

In the meantime of my computer being down, I was able to spend some much needed time studying and was also able to write 13 letters and get them sent off. Now I only have 4 more to write and then I will be caught up!

I will be updating more soon, but right now-I want to tell you about a GIVEAWAY!

You might have read in my previous post that me and a few others will be fasting on November 27th and will spend the day in thought and prayer for the children and their families living in poverty. I am aware that November 27th is Thanksgiving-a day that usually consists of A LOT of eating! Yes, this would mean no turkey, no stuffing, and no apple pies, but what a great day to spend giving thanks by being in prayer for those who have little to none.

Please consider joining us! In no way am I trying to say that if you don't join us, you should feel guilty or that you don't care about these families. I understand that fasting isn't for everyone. Maybe you have to eat for health reasons and you would like to give something up (like that apple pie) for Thanksgiving. Maybe you want to be in prayer with us that day. What I'm talking about is being thankful for the plentiful amount that God has given us by giving our time, thoughts, concern, and prayer to those who don't have enough.

One of the things that I would love to do is to encourage everyone joining us to purchase THIS shirt (I LOVE mine BTW-my husband says it's slimming!) and wear it on the Fast and Feast day to show that we are united in fasting and prayer for these families.

Sign-up by making a comment to this post and I will add your name into a drawing for one of the t-shirts compliments of me. You will be able to pick one of the 4"Please" shirts in either Bengali, Amharic, Portuguese, or Creole.

I will draw a name on November 19th to insure it's delivery to the winner before Fast & Feast day!!!

Although I can not fast all day due to nursing, I will commit to setting aside part of my day to focus in prayer on this subject!

I will join you! Thanks for putting the idea out there; I have become more aware of the Global Food Crisis through Compassion's website, but this is a wonderful opportunity to truly focus my prayers on this crisis.

What a fabulous idea! Count me in to join you in prayer on the 27th, and add me in for the giveaway too.
