It is hard for me to ask for things from people.
It's easier for me to ask for something
if it's for someone else.
But if it involves me, no way.
I hold my tongue.
I decide that I need to pull myself up by my bootstraps
and figure it out on my own.
It's prideful. It's ugly. It creates a mess.
But I am humbled by God,
by His mercy.
I need God
and I need help from God's people,
The Body of Christ.
My first trip to Haiti I didn't ask for help financially.
But this time around
(and in very recent days too)
God has shown me:
but three times (!)
that I need to ask for help.
And The Truth:
That really it's not about me.
It is not.
It's about giving up myself.
It's about becoming part of the bigger picture.
It's about people that are hungry and poor in every sense
physically and spiritually.
It's about going out into the world
loving and sharing The Gospel.
It's about His Kingdom.
one that will never fade.
It's about His life in me.
It's about Him.
But I can't do it without The Body of Christ.
I need help.
So I'm asking. And I'm praying.
I need to raise a little over $1,500 more.
Every donation will go towards helping many.
I will be back in Haiti October 14-21.
If you are able to give, would you please give today?
And if you can't give, would you pray?
truly. i. am. humbled.
