It's funny how sometimes (ok almost always) life turns out just a little bit different than we imagined in our own plans. Today's challenge was to think about be prepared to be mobile, the gospel is mobile and we must be ready to follow and obey at a moment's notice. We've been talking a lot lately about obedience, surrender, timing, transition, etc...and that takes trust. It takes us surrendering our dreams and aspirations for His and in that we find a goodness deeper than we ever imagined. We become grateful because our "revised" version of life is richer, sweeter and more satisfying than our original plans. Our hearts move from being willful to being willing. Today's time in reflection was taught by Rosemarie Hanson whose family serves long term in Kenya.
My response to being mobile is to think about what I can do practically to be able to move and do anything God speaks at any given moment. What comforts, "necessities" and ties must I cut to be able to afford this level of obedience.

One Child Campaign is a ministry outreach of Faith Central Ministries. The vision of the Orphan Awareness and Vision trips is to create a united effort of ministries to give voice to the over 5.5 million orphans in Ethiopia and around the world. This will be accomplished through sponsorship, empowerment and discipleship that will meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the children. This trip will immerse you into the lives of orphans and street kids. It will create an experience that will raise awareness not only to the orphan, but also for the body of Christ to realize the impact it can have through advocacy and adoption. An important part of our ministry is to provide resources for adoptive families. This is a mission to raise up a generation with selfless faith. Together, we can breathe hope into the orphan crisis.
