“A Common Stew For an Uncommonly Good Cause”
I have been following this fundraiser pretty closely. It is a very ambitious fundraiser, sponsored by a family that rescued their son from one of the worst institutions, the first little boy ever to be adopted from where he was! What a precious family and what amazing trust they have in Him. They have seen the pit of hell that the least of these are sent to, and everyday they shout and they blog and they share their hearts, all in the hopes that through them people will know the truth, and that hearts will be stirred and moved for the fatherless.
Mulligan Stew started with one 17 year old girl’s desire for a family. Her name is Masha. Most would consider her unadoptable. Miraculously, God has not only provided a family for her, but her three younger siblings as well! But of course, adoption is expensive, especially adopting FOUR children, and their family needs help raising $35,000. WOW.
And because the Nalle family has trust in the ONE who can do more that we could ever ask or imagine, this fundraiser has also been extended to over 20 other children! Once you have donated to sweet Masha’s adoption fund, you can donate to anyone of the other listed children for additional chances to win some very cool prizes.
You know how sometimes you get a song stuck in your head and it becomes so closely associated with an event that whenever you think of one, you hear the other or when you hear one, you think of the other? As I have been following Mulligan Stew for the past several weeks, the song “All Is Grace” by Shaun Groves keeping playing in my head.
“You have given
You have given all
You have given all so
We give all”
It’s a beautiful song. Such a reminder of the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf, and the sacrifices that we are called to make on behalf of others.
I know that I am not very good at this advocating thing, and that this may or may not have been a garbled mess, but my heart is so full for these children, especially sweet Masha, who is so ready to lay down the burdens of being a parent to her younger siblings and simply rest, and to have a chance at life. Without this adoption her future is very dim.
So, please, please, please consider stopping over at Micah Six Eight to learn more about this amazing Giveaway/Fundraiser! You will have a chance to win almost $5000 worth of prizes. (You can find a list of them all HERE.) And best of all, you will have a chance to bless the least of these.
