This is actually yesterday's post, yesterday there were things more important than blogging - gasp, haha! So today, there will be a post from yesterday and today.
Biblical guidelines for conversation are simple in theory: Is it beneficial? Is it focused on the needs of others? Is it edifying to the listener? If you have any reservations, choose not to speak.
Today, my response to biblical conversation is to be silent as much as I can and think before I speak or communicate. I am one who appreciates a good dose of sarcasm and am not easily offended. However, not everyone is that way...in fact, I might be in the minority. My focus will be on Kingdom mindedness, what is in the best interest of others, speaking truth in love and seeking restoration and redemption One thing I will not apologize for is speaking up for justice, this does not mean I must be rude or abrasive, though sometimes truth does convict. But the main issue is my heart and motivation for speaking...that's when the simple idea becomes a little more complicated. I must guard my heart and my mouth.

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.
