Mission Trip posting

July 18, 2008

The poverty i saw really struck me too, and it made me feel no hope for the kids i saw and worked with. Most of them didnt have a lot of food, stable parents, or a good home. They all needed a place to go where they would feel loved, cared, for and needed. As i worked with some of them i saw that they were very open to affection, singing praise/worship songs, or asking questions. They didnt act like spoiled little kids who just take and whine. Instead, they were thankful. I realized that there is hope for them, because they are needy and they’re coming to a place where Jesus is at the center, and so He can work through their lives by other christians there. I believe this because i saw a verse that said this: Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh! luke 6:20-22. Because they are poor they will want to follow God, unlike the rich who are filled with earthly pleasures and money and have no desire for God. They have real, everlasting treasure that most rich people will never get. So its WAY BETTER to be needy on Earth because you’ll recieve eternal blessing. I am also praying for the kids because as they go through pain and are in need, and i just want them to follow Jesus so they wont be in the darkness.
