the midst of blessings there is pain. There is so much tragedy around the globe
that I can’t keep up. Bombings in
Ankara, Turkey, murders in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, the
persecution of college students grounded enough to say they are “Christian” as
they watch the student next to them get shot for declaring the same thing and
more shootings of unarmed everyday people than you can “shake a stick at.” I am overwhelmed with emotion. I find myself more emotional lately. It is difficult to celebrate my favorite
rugby team the New Zealand Blacks making it to the semi-quarter finals when
just above the screen is a video of 86 people being murdered at peaceful rally
in Turkey. How do we say sensitized in a
world that promotes de-sensitization through the reoccurrence of unthinkable
violence? I pray for your prayers as my heart, as many others, has the
compassion to be moved toward the advocacy of peace, healing and righting
wrongs. Please pray for the girls that you have decided to bless me to be your
“hands and feet” on the ground in Frankadua, Ghana.
I recorded a video outside Emanuel African
Methodist Episcopal Church in
Charleston, SC several weeks after the shooting which took the lives of 9
people serving and worshiping the Lord. Click here to view the video, which is also located on my "Pictures & Video" tab.
Please become “1 of 100” people, if you
haven’t already, that makes the commitment to bring about peace, healing and
love to the girls in Ghana who are changing their lives and learning about the grace
of the LORD! Prayfully consider a tax
deductible commitment of $13.54 a month for 4 years or $162.48 a year.
Warmth, gratefulness and gratitude!
