Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
You have an opportunity to put this scripture into action this week – to help a widow in need and to raise money for the adoption of Olevia and her sister! Two parts to this project. Details below…
Part 1: Tomorrow (July 12) at the Hyppo Café in St. Augustine (1765 Tree Blvd) from 4:00 until 6:00, there is a support letter mailing party. Bring your addresses. $100 prize for the person who brings the most addresses. Form letters are provided!
Part 2: July 18, work at Mrs. Corin’s house. Her husband died unexpectedly in January and her home is in need of repair.

Below is a letter from Crystal…
I hope you have your calendars marked for this Sunday, July 12th at 4pm at the Hyppo Cafe. There will be music, food, and someone will win a $100 Amazon gift card!!! That’s right, whomever sends the largest amount of sponsorship letters will win! Side note – all you need to bring is your addresses. Letters, Envelopes, and Postage will be provided unless you feel so lead to bring your own.
We really can’t thank you enough for partnering along side us to bring little Olevia and her little brother or sister home. I know they’ll be excited to meet each and every single one of you and learn of how much you guys rallied to bring them home.
We do still need supplies in order to finish the projects at Ms. Corinn’s house. We’ve visited and followed up with 10 home improvement places and are having a really difficult time. If you know of anyone in the industry that could help us get our foot in the door that would be awesome. Both Hands is a 501c3 non-profit so they will receive a receipt for their donations. I’ve attached a supply list and a donation request in case any of you have any contacts.
Above all, please be praying. As you enter those addresses into your spreadsheet or jot them down in your notebook please being praying that God will be preparing their hearts for your letter. Pray for Ms. Corinn, that she will truly feel the love of Jesus on that day as we attempt to be His hands and feet.
Again, we are super pumped for Sunday! Get your addresses ready! We are hoping you’ll have at least 50 each!
Grace & Peace,
Darren, Crystal, & Olevia
