Lent and Missions!

What are you doing to observe Lent?  There are many ways you can give something up for Lent, and give something away for missions!  It's not just the fasting, but the new habit that replaces what you've given up.  Turn your self-denial into blessings this Lent.  Here's how:

  1. Declare a fast from Starbucks, Chick-fil-a, or any other fast food place you frequent.  Donate the savings to a missionary or project.  Choose a project from the Great Co-Mission Catalog!
  2. Fast from facebook and use the time you would have spent on facebook in prayer for missions or in writing a real letter or e-mail to a missionary on the field. 
  3. Sign-up for Blood Water Mission today!
  4. Join the majority of the world and eat one simple meal a day.  Put all the money you've saved on your grocery bill to sponsor a child, or give to missions. 
  5. Sacrifice sleep.  Choose to wake up one hour early every day of Lent, and spend that time praying for the world. 
Ask the Lord to lead you.  Don't be hasty.  Be sure to choose something that will make you more mindful of the Lord, and will be a blessing to others. 

Leave a comment and let us know what you're fasting this Lent.  We would love to pray for you!
