I don’t have much, but I have found if I give my little to the Lord, HE will make it much. Reminds me of the story of the feeding of the five thousand. The little boy only had two fish and three loaves of bread, but it fed everyone and enough left over to feed the disciples as well. I have always thought that was amazing.
The Lord has burdened my heart for the country of Bolivia. I was very ignorant to the needs there, and as I looked into it, my heart broke. As in many third world countries, children as disposable. Can you imagine? Leaving them on a doorstep, or at ten years old putting them in the street to work. I really had my eyes opened to these “street children”, and how God is moving through the streets in Cochabamba, Bolivia. DaRonn and Angie Washington have a ministry that they not only do the administrative work, but are also living and working the ministry, in an Orphanage. Rehanna is a friend of thiers and is also working in Bolivia, and reaching out to the street kids. There stories are a beautiful picture of God’s grace in action.
Please consider joining me in giving (even just a little), visit the ministry website here. Jesus said to let the children come to HIM. Be a blessing this holiday season, remembering that we do not go to bed hungry, we know that we are blessed…but blessed to be a blessing. Peace

So many people hurt, so many people going through trials, so many confused people, so many misled people. Its not hard to see them, just look around where ever you are, and its there. Some may never speak a word to what they are going through, but the eyes are a window to the soul, and its there..darkness, hopelessness, rejection, shame, loneliness.
I know how this all effects me, from time to time, I just have to cry out for them…I feel their pain. Thinking of how much more our LORD sees and hears and looks into thier darkened hearts, and what that must feel like to HIM, the Creator, knowing that HE created a way for them to come to HIM and have the darkness turned to light. Either it has been rejected or….we the body are not doing our job in letting HIS light shine through us. SAD. Don’t believe for a second that all have heard the Good News and have made a choice, I don’t believe that.
Lord, the ones of us who are trying hard to work in the harvest fields are tired, we get weary from friendly fire(that by the way is not so friendly), we are becoming desperate for the lost to hear and know you, please send help…encourage us…minister to our wounds, and give us strength. Help us, we are so selfish, so self centered in all we do. We need to be emptied fresh and refilled with more of you. I know you know, and I know that nothing escapes your eyes, refresh us. Your grace is sufficient for us, help us to remember it always. Everything is about you, and nothing is about us.
