"When you do something for someone else, don’t call attention to yourself. You’ve seen them in action, I’m sure—‘play-actors’ I call them—treating prayer meeting and street corner alike as a stage, acting compassionate as long as someone is watching, playing to the crowds. They get applause, true, but that’s all they get. When you help someone out, don’t think about how it looks. Just do it—quietly and unobtrusively. That is the way your God, who conceived you in love, working behind the scenes, helps you out." Matthew 6:2-4 (MSG)
It has been amazing to watch this happen and to see many of the families on our site be the benefactor of such amazing and humble people who just want to help and do it quietly and unobtrusively.
Kim Mol was one of the recipients of an anonymous gift at the end of 2014. Here is what she had to say about Village to Village Intl.
"When I was first told about Village to Village International, by a fellow church member, I never imagined the impact it would have on me...not only financially, but spiritually as well. I was grateful for an opportunity to help offset some of my adoption expenses but never fathomed that my $10,000 goal would actually be met. I was just hopeful that enough money might be raised to cover the cost of airfare to Ethiopia. But God knew my needs were greater and He provided in the most amazing way! In addition to the generosity of family of friends, a significant donation was made to my account by an anonymous donor...on THREE separate occasions! Each act of generosity was an answer to prayer when it was needed most. This whole experience has had such an impact on my faith...confirmation that God is orchestrating every detail of this adoption. I am beyond grateful for each individual who has allowed God to work through them & am humbled to receive such an abundance of blessings!"
