This winter, orphaned children in Moldova will freeze solid in the night, never to wake up again.

I found this out in a phone call from a friend, who sent me an e-mail, which directed me to this website, where I learned that I can actually DO SOMETHING about it.

Can my little acts ensure no more orphans will die from the cold?  No.  Can I save at least SOME of them? Probably.

First Assembly’s  Kaio Student Ministries is coordinating the coat drive to send clothing (coats, boots and hats) to a ministry to Moldova that is trying to help.  We can donate a coat or donate a dollar; every little bit counts.

More information on the problem and solution in general can be found here.  More info about our local community’s opportunity to help is on the flyer posted below.  If you’re a part of Gateway Baptist Church (or are just in the area) you can bring coats by our Gateway offices any time before November 10th. I’ll take whatever we have over to the Kaio offices that afternoon.

Will you help, or ignore the opportunity?

Mat 25:34-46 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  35  For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,  36  I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.‘ 37  Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?  38  And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?  39  And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’  40  And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ 41  “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  42  For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,  43  I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’  44  Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’  45  Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’  46  And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
