Compassion International sent five prominent bloggers to India (where they are now) to blog about their reactions to the poorest of the poor and the work of the 'church' in desperate situations. I think, like me, you'll be amazed. Humbled. Motivated to do something.
Here are the bloggers:
Melissa Fitzpatrick (Beth Moore's daughter)
Pete Wilson (a pastor from Nashville, TN)
I had the privilege of going on a similar trip last year - to Ethiopia. I was scared. I was overwhelmed. And I know someday I'll go back. But honestly, it was not a pleasant trip. It was the hardest thing I've ever done. Yet I know it was God who loved me so much that He knew I needed Ethiopia.
I'm helping with this wonderful ministry - Adoption Ministry of YWAM Ethiopia - where I am a small part of making a difference in the lives of widows and orphans in that destitute part of the world. We just last week completed our first international adoption and the Youngs have a new little boy in their family! A boy given a family to love and nurture him.
We're always looking for people to join us - either in sponsoring a child, going on a missions trip or committing to pray for one of our children waiting to be adopted. I'm not at all ashamed to ask you to get involved - somehow - in the lives of the neediest in our world.
That We Might Be Adopted... from Ethiopia.
