The first thing to know: don’t be afraid.
It can all seem overwhelming. How could I come up with all those funds? That’s what we thought when Shevet Achim first started. But all it took from us were a few simple steps of obedience to the words of Jesus. And if we don’t limit God by our unbelief, he’ll amaze us with what he chooses to do.
First step: Give to those who ask of you. Don’t pass by on the other side of the road due to the risk of getting involved.
Second step: give what little we have. Five loaves and two fishes fed a multitude.
Third step: pray. You have not because you ask not.
Fourth step: share the word. Almost everyone will agree that we should come together to help save a child’s life, and bring Muslims and Jews closer together in the Middle East at the same time. If we step out in faith, we’ll find ourselves in new life-giving relationships that we would never otherwise experience.
