At times, I think that we all ask the question, “why am I here?”  We all have a yearning to know what our purpose is, and where we fit in God’s bigger story, the greatest love story in history!  A story that we are called to share with the world, in the hope that God will change someone’s life forever.  

In his new book, “Unfinished”, World Vision president, Rich Stearns reminds us of the mission that Jesus calls every believer to, a challenge to ‘go into all of the World’ and proclaim hope and demonstrate His incredible love.  A job that Rich declares is “Unfinished.”  He reminds us that after having an encounter with Jesus, “you can’t just go back to your old life, that is not an option, an encounter with Jesus changes everything.”  Rich’s encouragement to you is simply this, “Be a finisher!”

This month, I hope that you will join me on this journey to be a “finisher!”  We are setting out on a mission to change the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children. Children who desperately need our help. Everyday 20,000 children, under the age 5, die, and sadly most of them from things that are preventable. If they make it past 5, 67 million will never make it to school and more than a billion are severely deprived of what they need to survive.  I know those numbers can seem overwhelming, but we have the power to change the world, one child at a time!  

During this mission, we are teaming up with World Vision to take “Love Around The World”, to fulfill the Lord’s call to go into all the World proclaiming hope and demonstrating His great love!  During this month, we are looking for 1,000 people to help us with the “unfinished” business of caring for these children and sharing the Gospel.  

For what you spend on one meal for your family at a drive thru, you can feed, educate and care for a child for an entire month, a child who is in desperate need of help, a child, who without your help, may not make it.  The great thing about sponsoring a child is that you are, in a very real sense, adding another member to your family.  You’ll have the chance to build a relationship with your World Vision child that often times means more to them than you can imagine.  

Mother Theresa said, “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.”  Join us in taking “Love Around The World” help us change the world one child at a time. Learn how to sponsor.
