J. T. OLSON OF BOTH HANDS MINISTRY

Living Life with Lauren | Saturday, July 22, 2017

This week Lauren brings us into the living room with J. T. Olson of Both Hands Ministry. (bothhands.org) It’s outreach to widows and financial aid for families wanting to adopt – a win/win for the body of Christ.

Almost ten years ago, J. T Olson served on the board for Bethany Christian Services in Nashville and was responsible for an annual golf fundraiser where letters were sent asking for sponsorship for the golfers. A few days before the event, his friend sent his sponsorship letter back to him and scribbled on it, "JT, if you were working on a widow's house I might sponsor you, but you're just golfing. Nice cause, but not my money."  J.T. says, “I'll admit I was a bit surprised, but I called him and we had a good laugh about it. His idea never left me. A few years later, one of my friends came up to me in church and told me he was adopting four orphans from Moldova. Since I had adopted, I knew it was expensive. I asked how much he needed to raise. He replied, "About $65,000." He had no clue how he was going to do it, but knew it was God's calling.”
