A Great Way to Help

So many of you have been asking how you can help Greg, Joy and James in their time of need. You have been so empathetic and insightful with practical ways to actually put your love for them into action. Many of you have imagined the great financial stress that this diagnosis and treatment has brought into their lives. Those who know Greg and Joy well realize that it is in their nature to want to plan and budget for all of the expenses they will incur. Those of you who have experienced any kind of medical condition also know that it will be impossible for them to do so. One of the many life lessons they will be learning during these years is the lesson of humility. As you can imagine, it is very humbling to be in a position where you would even consider accepting financial help from loved ones. Yet, that is the position they are very unexpectedly in.

So, I have taken the liberty of adding a way for you who feel so led to donate money toward all of these unforeseen expenses that are mounting. I am adding a pay pal link to the blog. All you need to do if you are inclined is click the link and follow the instructions.

If you do not feel led to give in this way, please don't even consider it. The body of Christ has many parts. Each one has a job to do. I expect that as you walk with God, He will lead you to help in the way that is right for you. Along this journey we will need those who are prayer warriors, those who cook great meals to go, those who can mow a lawn in 30 minutes flat, as well as those who feel called to be a part of relieving some of the financial burden. Our gratitude is heartfelt for whatever role you play.
