I have not posted much about the country so close to my heart Africa. God is teaching me to pray without ceasing for the billions of children with no home, and for my purpose in this huge heartache. I love my Thursday morning group we gather and pray and chat about that close to Gods heart the poor and the orphaned all over the world. Last week in our study I read something that made a vast revelation to me. The answer to the AIDS crises....this is a shocker...THE CHURCH!
" The churches around the world is growing at the rate of 60,000 new converts a day. To stop the HIV/AIDS pandemic requires something growing faster than the 14,000 new infections every day and the church fits the bill." Kay Warren from the book Dangerous Surrender!
We as a church a body of Christ we are the answer to such a dark and hopeless future.
We are so comfortable in our cushy lives hell I will say it, we may be struggling as a nation and have plenty of bills to go around, but really we got it good in comparison. Yet we as the church we have also clung to the fantasy that faith wont cost a thing. Really what has your faith cost you?
This question has been ringing in my mind for weeks now. In my surrender to Christ can I honestly say that I will follow his will and lay down my own for HIM no matter the cost? After all He only has given His Whole life for me!!
An inexpensive gift idea and a fun recipe!
