India (what else).

"India is the country with the greatest concentration of lostness."

yes, it one of the biggest countries in the world, but catch it. said it again in your head. India is truly a place desperate for the truth of the gospel. oh that we would grasp this and that we would be brought to our knees. and then, that Christ would give us legs to run and utter truth from every ounce of our being.

Ah but we have the legs... it is the connection of thought and heart to strength of will and action that I am praying for.

I am reading an article in perspectives right now, and id like to share a bit...

"We dare not watch a child die for the lack of a cup of powdered milk or a spoonful of rice when we represent the wealth of North America, especially the Bible believing Americans, where even a fraction of that wealth could save millions of children from starvation.

We dare not stand aside and leave people homeless, their eyes staring empty into the hopeless future, when we can put a roof over thier heads for a pittance, bu North American standards.

We dare not take a spectator's seat watching refugees who huddle just out of gunshot range. They are not just "inevitable victims of war." They are creations of God and He has called us to minister to them.

In other words, what we really believe in, we do. Everything else is just so much religious rhetoric. God never intended for the righteous to sit idle while the restless poor struggle for survival."

Let's talk in person Cindy, I would love to hear more than a blog can contain :)
