taking the words of Jesus seriously


Recently, Red Letter Christians has established a symbiotic relationship with Feed the Children. If you don’t know about this program go to www.feedthechildren.org . This is a program that recruits sponsors for children in developing countries so they can be fed and educated as well as being introduced to what Christianity is all about. For $34 a month – that’s a little more than $1.10 a day you can feed and educate a child in any of the following countries: El Salvador, Haiti, Kenya, Nicaragua, Tanzania, Guatemala, Honduras, Malawi, Philippines, Uganda.


Feed the Children runs a multi-functional ministry. First of all when you support a child in a village in a developing country, Feed the Children makes a commitment to provide a feeding program for all children of that community. More important, it does not limit sponsorships to children who are from Christian families. Feed the Children believes, and we agree, whenever and wherever children are hungry, that all are fed regardless of whether or not they are in churches and are under the influence of Christian families.


I hope that you agree with our stance. I am speaking on behalf of Feed the Children movement because I believe in it. And rather than receiving honorariums for recruiting sponsors, I have asked Feed the Children to contribute to the RLC movement.


This is a wonderful opportunity for you to do something for children in the developing world with confidence, since 92 cents out of every dollar contributed goes directly to a sponsored child. It would mean a great deal to me personally and would support the Red Letter Christians movement if you would agree to sponsor a child, and, if possible, even more than one through Feed the Children. If your answer is YES!, please email your name and address to [email protected] and you will receive a packet with a photograph of your sponsored child and further information about what is being accomplished through this ministry. Thanks for considering, and regardless, let us remember these children as we pray.
