It’s been so fun this week to hear about different ministries that are near and dear to bloggers’ hearts! If you’ll remember, my birthday post, A Birthday Giveaway: On a Mission, asked the question, “if you had $500 to give to a Christian charity/mission organization of your choice, to whom would you give it and why?”

There were all kinds of ministries nominated, and my sweet Aunt Mary Ellen (the giver of the original birthday money that was given to me as “blessings to produce fruit”) prayed over each one. I did the same. When she told me who she felt God was leading her to choose, I smiled, as I had felt the very same leading! Don’t you just LOVE a confirmation??

The recipient of a $500 gift is:


(nominated by Elaine at Peace for the Journey, and “Anonymous”)

Of course, the other nominees are all wonderful organizations, completely worthy of any and all gifts of prayer, time and treasure. I’m including links to all of them, in hopes that you’ll take a moment to visit their sites and see what they’re doing to further the kingdom. Who knows? Maybe God will give you a nudge to get involved!
