Two-thousand years ago the disciples of Jesus started a movement that changed the world. Are we still changing the world? We can. We can be two-thousand times more effective—if we only try!
Here’s an example. There are 145 million orphans worldwide. Nearly 236 million of us living in the U.S. call ourselves Christian. From a purely statistical standpoint, by ourselves, we have the wherewithal to house every orphan in the world. There’s enough food on the planet to feed the hungry! But the storehouse is locked.
God has given our generation everything we need to alter the course of human suffering. Change must start with us! With our transformation! Ours is the wealthiest generation of Christians ever! We can be more effective—if only we try!
We truly can be the change. We have been blessed abundantly so that we can in turn bless abundantly. As David Platt puts it, we need to embrace the notion that each of us is blessed by God for a global purpose—to make Christ’s glory known to all the nations! You don't have to go oversees to make a global impact, you can do it from right here in Nashville, or wherever you live!
If you are in the Nashville area, we would be honored to have your support on Saturday night. I am confident that God is going to work in a mighty way at that event. I'd love for you to be there to see what He has planned. To order tickets online, follow this link and use the code: ADOPTSHEAHEN. Or, you can buy tickets at the game. Just be sure to tell them you're there for the Sheahen Family! We will have some tables set up in the main lobby, selling our t-shirts and also some of 147 million orphans merchandise, who have been so kind to partner with us for this event! If you already have one of our t-shirts, please wear it to the game. If you don't have one and want one, check them out on this link and email me what sizes you need! We even found out today that a car will be given away to someone at the game on Saturday night! But that's not why you should come. (although it is pretty exciting!) :)
