We held the children in our arms.

And they taught me how to believe.

I've said it before but there really aren't words to describe what I saw in Malawi. The contrast between those who had a little bit of help and those who didn't made an indelible impression on my heart.

The gift of youth ministry is that I get to share the hope of Christ with young people--and I get to watch them, in response, share that same love with others.

I want to say thank you. Thank you to the students. Thank you to the thousands who said yes to helping in a small way.

If you've ever participated in the 30 Hour Famine, you have to realize that for just a little over a day, in your uncomfortableness, you made fruitfulness a possibility.

You are loving God when you walk as Jesus did--hearts full of compassion, humility, and energy to be Kingdom change in your worlds.

"It is God who arms you with strength, and makes your way perfect." Psalm 18:2 NJKV

I watched this video with new eyes today because I've seen the fish in the ponds and the silos filled with corn. I've carried the children and held hands with the women who draw the water. The farmer shook my hand with gratefulness born out of hope. It's real. It's happening. You can give life, in Jesus' name.
