26 Sep 26Together: Movin’ Right Along
Does anyone remember The Muppet Movie from a while back? The one where Kermit dreams of going to Hollywood and making it big on the silver screen? Along the way Kermit picks up other Muppets with the same dream and they form a band of friends who eventually make it there and accomplish what they set out to do. In the end they have a motivating story to tell.
In some ways that is a ridiculous example of what this movement is; however, there are some similarities. We are on an adventure together! We are moving along trying to gather as many people to join us and go with us on this crazy ride and see where it goes. 26Together is trying to bring people together to raise support for the kids at Amazing Grace Children’s Home in Northern Uganda. They are in need of a new kitchen after a recent inspection by local official condemned the current one for health reasons. So, we are setting out with the goal of raising $13,200 to build a new kitchen for them! We are motivated out of love for these kids, and for the rest of the ones who need someone to stand up for them, around the world. Love pushes us to reach out with a tender hand toward God’s little ones
Now the question is: what can you do? How would you like to join us in this adventure of love? The first thing you can do is make a video or take a picture of you and 25 friends doing something exciting, interesting, or just plain awesome. Then you can make a team on the 26Together website and donate the funds you raise online. Another thing (possibly the biggest thing) you can do is spread the word. We want everyone to know what is going on and how they can be a part of this exciting endeavor. Can you imagine how incredible it would be to have thousands of people gathering, making videos, and loving on the family of God in Northern Uganda? It sounds beautiful to me.
