Just Change

Just Change… Where Family and Missions Collide


“One home at a time” conjures pictures in our minds of suburban families seeking to lead the next generation biblically. We think of our children and our homes as we walk the path of Legacy Milestones. In order for the world to know the justice of God we must also think of other children and other homes.

Kingsland’s Go Beyond Missions Ministry has established a partnership with a safe house in Kolkata, India. This safe house is a place where girls who have been rescued from forced commercial sex are taken to live. The girls receive counseling, are given help to get off the drugs given to them by their oppressors to make them compliant, and are given education and taught a vocational trade. The staff of this home works to return girls to the families from whom they were kidnapped and to relocate girls sold into slavery by their own parents.

Kingsland’s Legacy Milestone Ministry is partnering with our Go Beyond Missions Ministry to raise the monies needed each month to provide for the safety and needs of these young girls. If every family gives “just change” each week we will be able to fully support these victims of injustice.

Legacy Milestones will provide a bank for each family to use during their weekly faith talk. At each faith talk encourage your children to bring change to help the girls in India. Included is a series of faith talks you can use to help your family understand the issue in an age appropriate way and to teach the Scriptures concerning our role as promoters of God’s justice in the world today. In this way we will teach our families to think of others who so desperately need our help.

Pick up a little red bank home on February 7 at Parent Summit. When you see it, remember the safe house and the young girls that will be rescued and rehabilitated. Put it in an obvious place and encourage everyone to deposit “just change.”

Let’s go beyond … one home at a time.

    Great idea! For future reference, I have a way to cut out small, paper milk cartons that can be used for banks. They have to be put together, but are cute for this type of project.
