As we fly across the Atlantic on our way to Mbale, Uganda, my thoughts are back home in Houston with all the people whose lives have been upended by Harvey. My thoughts are also with the people of the Caribbean Islands which our family just visited this last spring and those very spots where hammered by Ivan. These people may also get hit in a few days with Jose if it doesn’t turn north. My thoughts are with the people of central Mexico as Katia heads toward them. My thoughts are with the people of Florida and Southeast US as Ivan bears down on them. The team has asked more then once how we can be going to Uganda when so much is happening back home. My thoughts are with the people in Uganda, Guatemala, the Mexican border, the homeless who face no home, no water, no medicine, diseases every day not just during the disaster.
God is calling everyone of us who has more to do more. As a Holy Apostle, I can do so much more but I will have to adjust my priorities. There are going to be so many opportunities to help others. People in our own Church, people in our neighborhood, people all over the world. I must up my game; its what God asks of us. I figure it can’t be harder than being on the cross for the world’s sin. This ain’t nails.
Won’t you join me in giving more time and money in our outreach. We are going need everyone who has more to give more to help those who don’t have and have lost so much.
