For the Love of Music
Music. It soothes the soul. And, now is serving as a soul soothing link between children enrolled in Love Without Boundaries Believe In Me Schools and the families that adopt them.
Thanks to the Fields of Grace adoption ministry of the Hill Country Baptist Church in Austin, Texas and the big hearts of Sunday School children there, money has been raised to buy music CD’s that are f requently played for children in Love Without Boundaries Believe In Me Schools. When a child is adopted, their new family receives a CD of music that their new son or daughter is already familiar with to play in their new home. Each CD is presented to an adoptive family with a label that reads: Fields of Grace/Believe In Me: Musical Memories. A Gift of Familiar Music From My First Home In China.
Through a “red envelope” campaign, the Sunday School children raised enough money to buy CD’s for children adopted for the next two years. And, additional funds were raised by the kids to purchase school supplies for Love Without Boundaries future school being planned right now – Believe In Me III. One young Sunday School student was so moved by desire to help orphans that he donated all the money he had been earning for a new Nintendo to the school children of LWB’s Believe In Me students.
We are touch and inspired by the love children have for other children. Way to go kids!
