13 Jul Isabelle Redford a 7 year old girl saves Orphans
Last Friday ABC’s world news’ person of the week was Isabelle Redford a 7 year old girl here in Kansas City who stated to draw cards to raise money for orphans at an orphanage she visited with her parents.
Kevin and Kelly Redford participated in mission work in Haiti. After their trip, her parents encouraged Isabelle to do what she can to help them.
Isabelle started to make handmade gift cards, which she sold at $40 per box. She then began working with C3 Missions and the Global Orphans’ Project to speed up the process. She earned more than $10,000 — half of that was enough to build an orphanage in Haiti, where she visited last month
ABC news updated their report (7-13-09) saying she had now earned over $250,000 since they aired her story last Friday (that’s more than a 100x more than the average church gave last year to help orphans).
A seven year old girl was able to do this, just think what you could do if you chose to do something about poverty, hunger, and orphans, to be obedient to Mat 25:34-46
Perhaps Jesus was thinking of Isabelle when He said:
Therefore whoever shall humble himself like this little child, this one is the greater in the kingdom of Heaven. Mat 18:4
…..and said, Truly I say to you, Unless you are converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven. Mat 18:3
I think this on fits nicely too,
Pro 20:11 Even a child is known by his own doings, whether his work is pure and whether it is right.
