More Jesus, Less Least of These

I try not to clog the blog with content about The 25 Group, the nonprofit I co-founded in 2014, because you can always stay in touch on the website, Twitter, or Facebook. But I’m geeking out a little bit about the direction we’re headed and I wanted to give you just a little bit of info and invite you to join in.

Last year we donated a little over $52,000 to three other nonprofits.

Already this year we’ve raised well over $30,000. We have retained our partnership with a village in the Dominican Republic as well as given significant donations to American Rehabilitation Ministries and Under the Same Tree.

We just began a partnership with Diamond Willow Ministries, a fantastic organization on the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. In all of our partnerships we are looking to make more of Jesus and less least of these. It all circles back around to our founding passion — to care for the most marginalized people on the planet. We give to groups who are in the trenches living alongside the hungry, thirsty, stranger, sick, imprisoned, and naked. Serving one of the poorest areas in the United States, Diamond Willow is certainly on the front lines. In particular, they do spectacular work with the children on the reservation, lovingly pointing them toward Jesus while caring for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

This is where you come in.

By giving $25/month to The 25 Group, you help us fuel missions like these. It’s a relatively small, manageable commitment for most of us, but it makes an enormous impact in the lives of many. In India, Iraq, the Dominican Republic, in prisons all over the United States, in the slums of Kenya, and now among the rural poor of South Dakota, lives are being changed. There’s more Jesus. There are less least of these.

If you’d like to read more about the work of Diamond Willow Ministries, check out some blogs I posted after visiting a couple years ago:
