Afghanistan Day 3: Get Out Of Your “Comfort Zone”

Scott and Kelli talk...

Ali Update

Premature Babies

Coming Home

There Together

This trip with CURE Intl. has been such a great lesson in why we must get out of our “comfort zone”.  Coming to Afghanistan, with tensions extremely high, certainly gave me a chance to get out of my “comfort zone” this week, and it has been life changing!  

Looking down at Ali on that operating table yesterday, I saw myself… Ali was lying there vulnerable and in desperate need of help, just like me.  When I was vulnerable and in desperate need of help, it was Jesus who came and rescued me!  He left his “comfort zone” to save me, and change my life…Forever!  This week the K-LOVE family helped rescue a little Afghan boy, and your efforts will change Ali Sina’s life… Forever!

My hope is that this week has demonstrated what can happen when we work together to make a difference for someone else.  I don’t know what getting out of your “comfort zone” means for you, but I am guessing that you have a pretty good idea what it looks like.  If Jesus set the example for us, by leaving his “comfort zone”, than I am not sure what makes us think that we can excuse ourselves from doing the same?  He has called each of us to love as he loved, to treat “the least of these” as we would Jesus, himself.  Jesus left his “comfort zone” to change our lives forever…now it’s your turn to leave your “comfort zone” to change someone else’s life!

Thank you for your support of kids with a cleft pallate.  When I was born I had a cleft pallate that was surgically repaired and now 40 years old and doing great.  I hope Ali has a long and happy life.  Prayer for him and his family in these trying times of war in Afghanistan.  Please bring Scott safely home.

Thank you for your support and investment in Ali's future. My son was born September 2011 with a Cleft Lip. He had surgery this January and is doing great. This story has personally touched me and I want to thank you again for all your support for those cleft affected. It means so much to so many. May God continue to bless.

Thank you Scott for the updates and for waking me up to "come out of my comfort zone", what have I been doing all this time?  So glad KLove was the only radio I could get clearly in my office on my small memorex, I just got stuck with it and what a damn good thing it was.  I have learnt a lot from your show and am sure am closer to knowing God than ever before.  Thanks for all you do, cant wait to hear your stories 12-3p, M-F!!

Thanks for sharing the photos and inspiration. Now Ali will have a chance to be "normal" in his society and God can help him touch more people as he grows and is allowed to go out in the world.

I pray that Ali and his family will come to know the saving grace of Jesus our Lord!

Act 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

I am so glad that Ali is doing so well post-op!

Scott, it is so cute the way that he is looking at you and holding your finger so tightly. Certainly a tear-jerker;  get the Kleenex!

May God continue to work through you and may others come to know Him.  

For God so loved the world...
