More and more missions has been on my heart. I have picked up magazines,books and read websites that will teach me more about what is going on around the world. I have my children raising money for the needy for the HEIFER organization and we pray for our church missionaries daily. The passion has caught on and my Hannah has "bonded" with an Indian orphan named GOSALIA.
I was on one of my few favorite websites and caught this awareness video. Be warned. Its not for the faint of heart. I got sick to my stomach. Not for the images before me, but over the fact this is happening this VERY second and we americans just go on about our life pretending it does not happen... or mostly, not even knowing. We (including myself) are too worried over the next sale, or where we are going out, to eat to sit back and take a second to pray for the persecuted. Or even better yet, to help. Whenever I see these videos or read about the persecuted, the missionaries risking their lives, it makes me want to just get on my knees and pray, sell my belonging and take my children and go help. I want to show them that life is more than physical wants. Gods love and mercy is needed desperately all over the world and we, as His children, need to go.
