Contagious Generosity Doubled!

I am deeply humbled and pleased to share the most exciting news from Lift Up the Vulnerable: 

 A committed family partner to the mission has been moved to issue a $100,000 challenge grant! 

This donor family has witnessed the work of transformation begun in Sudan and South Sudan and wants to continue to be part of God’s movement to extend hope, health, and education to the vulnerable children and women served by Lift Up the Vulnerable.

 This is an opportunity to give a gift that really matters to a part of the world that has been largely forgotten.  Consider the children whose lives are restored and how transformation of these lives will expand love exponentially.  Lives like John Gar Lual who is a junior in New Life Ministry’s (NLM) high school, along the border of Darfur in South Sudan:

I am J   ohn Gar Lual   . I was born in a village called Ayath-kou in Nyamlel, South Sudan. My father was killed in the year 2000 by the Janjaweed. I was left with my mother but after two years my mother died and I was left all alone. I went to the market to look for food to eat; leftovers that were discarded. I spent five months trying to survive in the market. One day    James Lual Atak    (director of NLM) came and invited us to his new school under the trees. He gave us soap to take baths in the river. The next morning he called us to go to the market to buy clothes & shoes. He even bought for us sweets. I came to NLM in 2004.    From that time up to now James took responsibility for me. And I thank him, with your collaboration, for protecting our lives. May God bless you all for the support you gave to us as orphans.

John has been receiving love, hope, education, shelter, security, encouragement, and a place to belong for over fourteen years.  The gift he receives from your generosity has transformed his life and is now transforming the world through him.  After school and on weekends, John works with the youngest boys at NLM and teaches them how to read, instructs them in stretching and sports, helps them with washing clothes and hygiene.   He is living the change, compassion, and generosity that was extended to him.  This is the power of Love, the transformation of one life, and the hope for a brighter future in war torn lands.  John’s story of love triumphing over adversity inspired our donor family to encourage others to take a step of faith and support LUV. 

Join John and our challenge grant family in the movement of LUV!  We simply can’t do it without you.  Your support will make a real and lasting impact in the lives of the most vulnerable children at risk to human trafficking and oppression. 

Every gift you make by December 31 will be doubled! 

John shows us that generosity is contagious!  Our prayer is for every recipient of this message to generously support the work of Lift Up the Vulnerable.  LUV protects, educates, shelters, feeds, and provides holistic healing for 1,500 children in Sudan and South Sudan.  Double your love this holiday season so that each child knows how precious he or she is in the eyes of God.

As John writes, “May God bless you all for the support you gave to us as orphans.”
