I hope this email finds you well. As the cases for COVID-19 increase around the country, and in some places dramatically (like where we’re based in the Tampa Bay, FL area), it seems we are all grasping about trying to find our way in this “new normal” of masks, social distancing, and quarantining.
With all of the navigating, the reality remains that the children removed from their homes due to abuse, abandonment, or neglect are doing a navigating of a different kind, as they learn what their “new normal” is away from their biological mom and/or dad.
Later today our team will be handing out over 800 meals to foster families in the Tampa Bay area. In partnership with the Grace Family Church (Lutz, FL), World Vision, and the USDA, we have secured boxes of fresh perishables that will help keep these kiddos fed.
For the next 8 Mondays, we’ll be handing out these boxes of fresh food to families all over the Bay area (seriously, if you saw the map of we’re they’re coming from, it literally covers hundreds of square miles!).
Will you please take a minute to look over the below list and pick out a name or two and for your #PRAY127 commitment today, just say a quick prayer? Prayer for them, pray for their biological children, pray for their foster children…pray that God gives them strength and wisdom to endure tenuous times.
