For the past 4 years, we have helped over a dozen families by using donations widgets through Chipin. We set it up this way so that you could see what the giving was and give directly through them to each individual family. It worked well for these past years. Now, however, Chipin has discontinued its service, and we will be going thorugh Paypal for the time being.
While we get their individual accounts set up and their personal donation buttons on, please give through the one below or on the sidebar …

Recently, Karen’s dad had surgery and complications, and she has been taking care of him at his place for over a month. She is in need right now, because this …

“Wash yourselves, make yourself clean.
Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes;
Cease to do evil. Learn to do well.
Seek justice, Relieve the oppressed, Judge the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.”
Likewise James 1:27 tells us that:
“The religious observance that YHVH the Father considers pure and faultless is this:
to care for orphans and widows in their distress
and to keep oneself from being contaminated by the world.”

Gleaning the Harvest is an online ministry for families who do not have local help and for us to give and to care for them as we are able, but we also want this to become a more local project. We would love to see people look for families in their area to give to personally and build relationships if possible instead of just dropping it off somewhere. How can you be a part of helping?
