:Making reservations for another Hotcakes for Humanity event! I'm so excited for this event this year because it promises to be bigger and better with more representation for other missions including African Inland Mission and 31 Bits.
Our first little dinner proved to me that even a few people can make a difference. When our church of almost 2,000 people recently raised money for a well known charity, the amount was substantial. But when I compared it to what our Hotcakes dinner was able to raise with only 8 donations, I realized that proportionately we outgave an entire church six times over!
With all the injustice and overwhelming need in our world, it's hard to imagine how your or my contribution can impact anyone. But when you pool together your resources with a few friends and keep expanding on that every year, in our lifetime that can amount to hundreds, even thousands of saved lives!
One thing I hope to highlight more this year is people like you and me who are making an incredible impact all over the world through their dedication and passion for others. Because when we hear and see and know for ourselves what is possible, it inspires us to want to get involved, too!
