40acts: Act 26 – Without Borders

Today’s act was written by Emily Holden She says:

The crisis isn’t over. Refugees are still in drastic need of help. The good news is there are many ways that we can get involved. But first, we need to choose to love without borders.

Today’s verse:

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

(Micah 6:8 NIV)

I think “Love your neighbour as yourself” Matt 22:39 works equally as well.

Today’s Options

GREEN OPTION:

Look up the Welcome Churches website and send the link to your church leader.

YELLOW OPTION:

Donate to a refugee charity or a local program that helps refugees find work in your area.

RED OPTION:

Serve with a charity helping refugees. You can sign up to a volunteer trip online, or serve in other ways (like spreading the word at home).

What did I do?

Today is parent teacher conferences at school before the Easter break. Teachers have back to back meetings for two whole days whereas parents can come in for an hour and see everybody they want to and start enjoying their holidays.

When we arrived in school my @40acts email had just been delivered. As I was reading it my daughter was buying homemade soaps from a stall raising funds for Rohingya refugees. I looked up and called my daughter over, gave her a large donation and told her to give it to them and explain why. They were delighted! My daughter shared about @40acts, what today’s challenge was and they were helping us complete today’s challenge. A win win situation. Yellow option complete.

  1. What a fabulist act of generosity. Lovely that you could reach out in this way.

    Have been watching on C4 news about the plight of this community as it runs from ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.

    My daughter is aware of it too. I think that young people should know about these things.

    Blessings to you ❤️
