As the team prepares to leave for Africa in just TWELVE short days our pastor played one of my favorite videos ever. I'm leveled each and every time I watch it. Sara Groves sings so perfectly what God has done in my heart using Africa as His tool to remind me to love deeper. To love better. To give more. To be HIS hands and feet. While I'm anxious to go back to Ethiopia, I'm praying for an even bigger wrecking in my heart. A wrecking to be more like Christ. To give MORE. To sacrifice. My prayer is that my life would be a living sacrifice for my King of Kings.
I leave you with this video from Sara and below that is a list of donation needs for the ministries we'll be working with in Ethiopia. If you'd rather donate financially we will be shopping here in the states just before we leave to take the needed items over. If locals have a connection with a business that may want to donate any of these items please let me know. We can provide tax deductible receipts for them if necessary.
