We’ve had many stories over the years of Vision where children have felt led to give their hard saved pocket money to the work of God through Vision. Today we heard from two in very close succession!
A Childs Generosity
Jeannie from Western Australia shared with us earlier today
“My 8-year-old son, Zechariah was gifted a radio by his Grandad. Since receiving this radio he has had Vision playing 24/7. I sometimes must sneak in at night and turn it down, so he is not waking the other kids. He came to me with $20 yesterday and said he wanted to donate; he has been saving his money for a long time, so this was a big step for him. I could tell it really came from a place of sacrifice, when I asked him if he was sure he said, ‘Yes I think Vision can do more with it.’ Hearing him talk and recount things he is hearing on Vision has been so incredible. Thank you for your ministry.”
Jeannie shared that if anyone turns the radio off Vision, they get in trouble for it!
Zechariah was learning what it meant to be generous and trusting. He believed his $20 was going into good soil, and he knew it was doing something for him and his family. He’ll be able to see what God does with his sacrifice in the future – but we know he’s going to help people look to God through it. This incredible childlike faith leaves us all for dead sometimes.
