Passion FOR Christ!

I want to introduce you to some sweet friends of mine.

Michael, Alecia, Gabriel and Naomi Corbin have turned everything in their lives over to serving the LORD and those that cross their paths in the ministry He has called them into.

In an e-mail interview with Alecia recently she told me this:

“Our passion is marriages and families. It is extremely difficult to have a Godly, healthy marriage in today’s society.

Being in the Early Childhood field and both of us being involved in children’s ministry we became so acutely aware of the impact of today’s marriages and families on children. We also have never had an easy marriage ourselves. Over the last 13 years we have encountered health issues, battled infertility, struggled with finances, and dealt with all of the stresses of a dual working family. We have also had some close friends who have given up on their marriages.

The truth is that over 50% of marriages end in divorce and every year in the U.S. over a million children experience divorce. We find that staggering and unacceptable. There has been no time more important than now to fight for families as God designed them. Our children are so important to us and that is part of the driving force behind us seeking God’s will for our lives. When it is all said and done we want to leave a Godly heritage for our children.

This is our passion: Making sure that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus Christ, and equipping marriages and families to spread the love of Jesus one home at a time. We believe that if you equip families here in the states one home at at time with the practical biblical tools, they in turn will spread this message to their friends and family.”

Located in their blog, you will find their full testimony. I highly recommend that you visit them and read all about their “weekend to remember” (located on their sidebar under testimony and calling). I know that everyone’s finances are probably the same as ours. Stressed and strained to the very last dime. However, after talking to the Lord about what we should do, we felt led to make some budget adjustments and bless their ministry in a small way. It is small, but the LORD can take anything you offer Him and make it go further!

I wouldn’t post this if I didn’t believe in this young family. I am very careful about what I share with my readers. This family, I know personally and love and share with you wholeheartedly!

Whether you choose to sponsor them or not, please be in prayer for them daily. The Lord is about to show up big time in their lives! The enemy is fighting them and trying to discourage them, but GOD is still in charge! He will be glorified through all the difficulties they have endured of late. AND—their strength, faith and testimony is growing!

God bless you all! Have a blessed week!
