Bryant and Rachel here. We often feel God calling us to certain people at certain times in our lives but with Days Of Difference the focus is and always will be PEOPLE. All people.
We traveled for the first two months of our marriage. We knew we wanted to travel but we didn't want to do it solely for ourselves to enjoy, we wanted our joy to be found in other peoples' smiles and happiness. We traveled Europe with the plan to make a difference in the lives of those we made contact with. God did some work!
Like the motto of Days Of Difference we want to do something different to be the difference to everyone we encounter.
It was an amazing trip and God did some amazing things. We do not have any big trips coming up but we still love to serve and love the people here in the states. Whether that is bringing packed lunches to homeless people, or paying for a strangers meal/gas/coffee, or even giving Christmas presents to an entire family that cannot afford to give their family more than hugs and kisses for Christmas.
We want to include everyone on this Days Of Difference Mission. Each donator can be 100% certain their money is going to a good cause by adding value to less fortunate people.
We ask God to bless every gift donated, we want each gift to be covered in prayer, and for it to be an act of love from each giver.
Spreading the love is what we are all about, but we are going to need the help and love of other lovers to help us more effectively spread this love!
You might say "This is just like the pay it forward movement." Well yeah it is almost exactly like that, the only thing that is different is that instead of doing these actions out of "niceness" and doing something "nice", these actions are done out of love to truly impact somebody's life forever. To give something of ours to somebody else, just like Christ would, with love. An unexplainable amount of love.
"The Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
If you do not have the means to donate, that is alright as well, but in lieu of a donation we ask that you share this idea of doing something different to be the difference. Giving is much more than giving money, it is giving time, effort, resources, smiles, laughter, love! So if you cannot give money, give whatever else you have to give, and give more than you think you can.
God Bless all of you!
