Impact the world, today

How great is it to see that we can impact the world, today, from right here in Denver!

I particuarly like that “they see mom & i on daystar here” and was convicted to follow Judi’s advice and went online here to make sure that those called to go, can go and that TV and technology continues to help develop good soil for when they get there.

I feel somehow more connected with what is going on in Ethiopia on this trip than I have in the past when we would get an “after action report.” How about you?

Why this excites me

I may not feel any call to go on a missions trip, and I don’t, but One Green Bracelet has me very excited because:

1) I can be involved just by leaving a comment or posting in my blog about it even while I’m in Las Vegas for a meeting.
2) I can be involved by giving and yes you can do that online here.
3) I am involved because my church is involved, so yes Judi, a church can “be growing, thriving, and global too!”

Just wait

“I think it can be so hard for me to be patient and just wait. Not that I was thinking that God wouldn’t provide but I was getting worried. God just wanted me to trust him.”

As Elissa is learning; when strife, doubt or fear arise it is good to take time to “be patient and just wait.”

Live blogging Ethiopia

I am excited to read the posting from Ethiopia as World-Child takes it’s One Green Bracelet campaign overseas.

If you have not checked out One Green Bracelet yet, I encourage you to do so. The “reality” of the blogosphere meets the reality of spreading God’s word. Powerful stuff!

Confident peace

I think Sue echoes an important set of life lessons for every Christian that Pastor Reece brought out in his powerful message Sunday.

“To survive the wilderness, you must get your eyes off the circumstances and onto God.”

It is so easy to let distractions and very real life circumstances keep us from the real peace of God’s will. When we focus on what God would have us do, take time to hear God’s voice and accept His grace in our lives, we can have confident peace in the midst of every real, but temporary, challenge we may be facing.
