Pray through these scriptures as God prepares your heart to serve:
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Acts 6: 1&7
widows advocates (1 Timothy 5:3 & 5:5)
#1. Pray for them and visit them regularly
#2. Lead them in Bible study, prayer and devotion regularly
#3. Send them cards and treats
#4. Prepare a meal for them
#5. Share Holidays and Birthdays with them
#6. Raise money as a family to financially sponsor their care each month through Abiding Hearts Ministry
#7. Participate in a service day when your widow has a big need that requires a lot of helping hands
#8. Help them take care of their home and yard
#9. Look out for health care or social needs that they have
This is a wonderful opportunity for families to serve together. It provides a very practical way for you to disciple one another & to nurture each other's hearts to reflect the Defender of Widows and the God of all comfort. Be creative: send pictures or crafts with your monthly letters, have a bake sale or a lemon-aid stand or let your children earn money around the house to help raise money to take care of the widow.
Remember that most of these people have no family or they have families who are not involved in their lives. They are lonely and forgotten, and in most cases we will be the only other people reaching out to them.

I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me....whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.
Matthew 25: 35-40
