Win a trip to the Dominican Republic!

Things you take for granted:

That’s you can just drive up and get gas in 10 minutes, compared to what’s going on with those of us in New York City, waiting in line for hours.

Your toothbrush. If you have your own toothbrush you’re blessed.  I heard this story about an orphanage with 30 kids, and 1 toothbrush, they shared it. That’s why each of those shoeboxes you’ve heard us talk about or you might be packing for Operation Christmas Child has a toothbrush.  You might think it’s a lame gift, but it’s a luxury for the child that gets it.

You could be the one to give it to them, in person this Christmas. You have chance to win a trip to the Dominican Republic with me and Operation Christmas Child to be on the team that delivers the 100 millionth shoebox this December.

To win, just tell us why you want to go here!

Live in Vision

It's easier said then done, to  let your circumstances get you down. Here’s a guy that is a living example of how to do it. If you're a football fan, you know who Chuck Pagano is, and what he's going through right now.  If you don't know. here’s his story: (Watch the video of his speech)

It’s his first year as the head coach for the Indianapolis Colts', but he was recently diagnosed with Leukemia, and he's been away from the team getting treatment, but yesterday, he came to visit the team in the locker room after a big win. He said, "But you refused to live in circumstances, and you decided consciously, as a team and as a family, to live in a vision. And that's why you bring things home like you brought things home today. That's why you're already champions, and well on your way."

Whatever circumstances you're facing today that are less than ideal, refuse to live in those circumstances, live in the vision.

God's vision for you is this:  

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans for hope and a future."

-Jeremiah 29:11.
