For the next 24 hours (through 12:00 noon on May 23, 2013), we at Abba’s House and Ron Phillips Ministries are asking our friends to help make a difference in the lives of those in Oklahoma. We know from experience how much every dollar means in times like this, and how important it is for action to be swift and decisive. Through the boots-on-the-ground assistance of The Southern Baptist Convention, as well as much needed supply lines set up by Operation Compassion, Abba’s House is raising money for these two humanitarian organizations to help ease the suffering of those affected by this tragedy.
Now is the time for all of us to step up and do something above and beyond – showing the love of Jesus in a real and tangible way to those who are frightened, hungry, tired, and hurting.
