what I learned today

I asked you to pray last week when I visited the detention center and God moved my heart, I continue to feel He's asking for me to help care for the forgotten people in our community. As I was preparing to leave home yesterday I frantically looked for the book I wanted to finish and couldn't find it. So I grabbed "The Hole in our Gospel" written by the president of World Vision. I can tell I will once again be challenged.

I began the book and I ran across these words, "How could the great tragedy of orphans get drowned out by choruses of praise music in hundreds of thousands of churches across our country?..sitting in a hut I remember thinking, How have we missed it so tragically, when even rock stars and Hollywood actors seem to understand"?

A haunting question indeed!

I will keep you posted on this book , I know some of you have already read it, God Bless!
