Recently my youngest child has taken a mission trip overseas to India.
This trip has changed all of our lives.
We've say we've seen poverty, we've been on short term mission trips, we say we know there's a need, we say we have a heart for missions, BUT, I can say I really had no idea how hard life is for some.
I've been ruined, broken, and can see that nothing else really matters.
God is changing our hearts. Things that I thought were so important a few months ago, really don't seem significant now. Homes, cars, furniture, leisure time, hobbies, none of that matters so much right now, when I see and hear of the needs of those who struggle each day, those who don't know what it's like to have a full stomach, a blanket to warm themselves, or even a roof over their head.
I can't imagine never experiencing a hug, being held, kissed, talked to. We've fallen in love with an amazing family in Sarahs Covenant Homes, a family that shares God's love with special needs orphans, a tough but rewarding life. Please read of an experience Sarah shares on her blog. Please consider giving to SCH, and definitely keep them all in your prayers. Sarah, I do admire you and all of those who spend time giving love to those who have been thrown away and abandoned. May God richly bless you!
Plea from India re: orphans
