I’m 33 today… so for this birthday I’m hoping that 33 of you (friends, family, colleagues, readers, and everyone) will wish me an extraordinarily joyous birthday by donating $10 to The Luke Commission — thereby being a part of saving 33 lives.
I’ve been privileged to be a part of fundraising for TLC with MVNU students and other universities. We take seriously our call and responsibility to help curb the AIDS epidemic in Swaziland, Africa. Sure… there are lots of ways to give to missions and other causes but I’ve been able to know about the difference that is happening Swaziland — a county that without help is slated for extinction due to the AIDS epidemic. This fall, I met with Harry Echo VanderWal who are on site in Swaziland. MVNU students have traveled to Swaziland to assist with AIDS testing and counseling. Lives are quite literally being saved and people are being exposed to the love of God and hope of new life.
One $10 gift provides one testing kit for one person. If more than 33 of you are able to give, then I’m hoping to use additional giving to outfit 33 Swaziland children with football (soccer) shoes. The VanderWal boys enjoy playing the sport but the children play without shoes or equipment. 33 players equals 3 teams of 11 and lots of hopeful smiles in a place that needs hope.
To give, you may use the link below or personally give me $10 and I will process the donation. If you give online, please let me know… it would be a great birthday gift!
33 for 33! Let’s do this.
