Every month, Be a Blessing looks for opportunities to bring opportunities! We strive to be a part of what God is doing across the globe through established faith-based non-profits and to participate in His vision to transform hearts, so that they may know Him! Each gift brings hope and love to hurting people and encourages organizations as they serve others. GIVE A LITTLE BACK TODAY… BE BLESSED ALL YEAR LONG!

We have a Winner!

Greetings to all new and old alike! This past weekend we had an awesome time connecting with women at a conference in St. Cloud, MN. I so loved meeting all of you and sharing with you the heart behind what God is doing through Be a blessing.

My great desire is for people to know that God needs them and they have a place to impact lives all around the world and that it doesn’t take much. When God gave me this vision to sow into faith-based non-profits to be a part of what He was doing through them, I didn’t realize how much of an encouragement we would be to the leaders of these organizations as well. I wanted to gather a group of like minded-people to help push forth Kingdom things at a faster rate, by partnering with what God was already establishing and wanting to accomplish. Little did I know the feedback from the leaders would be so moving on my heart. We are an unexpected group of people that God brings to them out of no where… just so God can say “I see you, I’m with you, and I still believe in my vision for you“. Ugh… the hope that brings to the people in the trenches everyday is priceless.

One of these leaders, Diane, recently said to me… “wow, I’ve never heard of something like this before“. Then I immediately heard God say to me… “See, I am doing a new thing.” God is always doing new things and how grateful we are to be used by Him. People are hurting all around us… God is reaching out to them with His love, His grace and His healing… He just needs people to see what He’s doing and sow into it.

What is our ROI (return on investment) you may ask? Well, in the midst of the chaos, the back-biting, the negative reports, the demise of our culture and the brokenness in our own lives… we receive joy unspeakable as we learn about and invest in the beautiful things in this world that don’t get much attention. The thousands of ways that God is pouring out His heart on our lands.

Our heavenly Father hasn’t gone anywhere guys!! Lets look for the tree in the midst of the forest and we will see His powerful, yet very personal, hands at work.

Check out our “The Why. The What. The How” video!

A testimony from one of our own… “I am so happy to partner with Be a Blessing. I am grateful to the leadership that they provide in finding much needed relief in smaller ministries that I would not normally know about or be able to help. I mostly appreciate the touching follow-up stories that explain where the money was expended so that we know in a very personal way how we are touching other lives by the word of God.  – Amanda”

The Why. The What. The How.

One of my main goal’s this year was to ‘get out there’ more with the opportunity that Be a Blessing provides to everyone who wants to be used by God to help others. The joy of sharing in someone’s recovery, or building of their new sustainable business, or being a part of a life transformed by the love of God. It’s a privilege to come alongside so many amazing organizations all over the globe. To be used by God to encourage their hearts and tangibly support the work they do and the people they serve. What a super idea God had to gather all of us together to be His hands and feet directly where it counts! We are so blessed to be counted partners with God in what He is doing through individuals like you…. all over the place!

This year in a nutshell:

  1. This spring God opened the door for me to speak at a Christian Business Leaders organization
  2. He allowed us to finish our promotion video that share’s the story and heart behind the ‘why’ of Be a Blessing (see below)
  3. God opened the opportunity to be on TV in Colorado for foster care and adoption bags
  4. We’ve heard numerous stories from the leaders of these organizations of how getting our emails and support has encouraged them so much (after their surprise of who we were. 🙂 )
  5. Our information table went up at our Community event in August where I was able to share our vision with many
  6. October brings another new opportunity to be at a women’s conference with over 3,000 people where we will again be able to share our story and bring awareness to what God is doing through us all!

I just wanted to update you a little bit of what the year has been like, as well as ask you to pray for this conference on October 5-6th. I’m believing that God will move on the hearts of people there to want to join us in this new thing God is doing to support and encourage His vision for people to know His love and healing power. One thing I hear often is… “wow, I’ve never heard of a non-profit like this before”.  Yeah!… that excites my heart because God is always doing new things and that means we are in the midst of HIS new thing!

Check out our promo video and let me know what you think! I love you all and I sometimes can’t believe you have decided to join me in this venture, this opportunity to love on others…. JUST BECAUSE WE CAN! You inspire my heart more than you will ever know.

 

Blessings, Sandy

Foster Care Blessing Update

Image

I met up with Janet from Project 1.27 today in Grand Junction, CO. We donated over 200 backpacks to their back to school program which will be given out to foster kids in the county. Each child will be able to select a bag and fill it with new school supplies for the coming year. It’s such a blessing for these kids to receive something new that they can call their own. It brings excitement to their school year and provides much needed supplies. I was able to do a really great interview with Janet who shared a lot about what they do and thanked you so graciously for your heart to bless them…. but unfortunately when I got to my computer there was something corrupt in the video file so it won’t open at this point I am unable to post it :-(. BUT… the news channel in the area came and did a quick segment that I wanted to show you! Of course, I said so much more than what they clipped out 🙂 but I’m grateful for the opportunity we had to meet this wonderful organization and share what God is doing through us to touch others!

God is moving us forward one month at a time!! 

 

Make the Difference

Image

So here’s the nutshell… we each give $5, collect everything that comes in that month, and bless a Christ-centered organization by accelerating the work of their hands. So often, it takes far too long to move the plans of the Kingdom forward due to resources, volunteers, supplies, etc. Through this ministry, we are able to come alongside those who are already doing great things for God and help them do even more. Every month you will see your gift bless someone in a different situation than that of the month before. Some months we send supplies or volunteers, some months we’ll send financial gifts, but EVERY month, whether local or international, we will do more together than we could do apart. It only takes $5 a month for you to make the difference! Now, that may seem insignificant to many of us, but when given together with thousands of others it turns into a great force to accelerate the workings of the gospel. Our ultimate goal is $5 a month and 100,000 people! Can you even imagine what God can do with that? He makes the impossible, possible… what we could never dream, He will do!
