Dear Friends of the Dream Center,
It’s that time of year. The holidays are fast-approaching and the Dream Center is gearing up to make a difference in the lives of at-risk children and families in the Wichita area.
I can’t remember a time when the world felt so disjointed and confused. We are trying to solve the world’s problems with an empty tool box. Pandemic, politics and presumption seem to rule the day.
I’m so glad that the One with all the answers is still on the throne. Jesus Christ hasn’t changed. His message is still the same: “Love God and love your neighbor.”
Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their adversity and to keep oneself unstained by the world. -James 1:27
There is nothing ambiguous or confusing about this truth…and it represents the mission of the Dream Center perfectly. Here’s what we know for sure. When we remain focused on this one mission, the confusion subsides and the peace resides. The Dream Center has decided to focus our efforts to spread more love and peace than ever.
This Christmas, we decided not to back off…but double our efforts.
Dream Kids Christmas: The pandemic won’t stop us this year. On December 16 we will host 20 foster families, representing 80 children. We want to honor the sacrifices these foster parents make to keep at-risk children safe and secure in their most difficult crisis. We also want to honor the children for their courage and strength. We will cater a first class dinner, share gifts with each child and gift cards for each of the parents. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there, as well as a family photo booth and other activities for the kids.
We are thankful to DCCCA for reaching out to us for this partnership.
Christmas Food Drive: We also have been asked by Goddard Schools and the Goddard Lions Club to help with a great Christmas outreach by providing a large delivery of groceries to struggling families just before Christmas. This effort will cost approximately $1500.
As you can see…WE ARE ALL IN! We hope you’ll be all in with us!
We estimate that the cost for the Dream Kids Banquet will average $100 per child.
Total = $8000.
The Christmas Food Drive will cost $1500.
It’s a heavy lift, but together, with God’s help, we can make this happen!
Will you help us?
· Will you sponsor a child for Christmas at $100? Can you sponsor two or ten?
· Could you or your church completely cover the Food Drive for $1500?
Any gift: $5, $25, $50 will be a tremendous help!
God has never let us down yet! Let him speak to you about being part of the miracle this year!
Wichita needs us.
Wichita needs you.
Let’s offer the sure answer of Christ’s love in a time when very few other things are sure. Let’s offer love where confusion and frustration are far too real.
