- Planning what I am going to pack. Still shopping for shoes and a suitcase.
- Imagining what I will experience, and hoping our group leader was kidding when he talked about some of the foods we will be eating. Ha.
- Trying to learn more about the country of Bolivia and World Vision.
As often happens when I am wandering the web, my search led me to YouTube where I found myself watching this great video.
What do Veggie Tales and World Vision have in common?
They care about children. All children. Everywhere.
I was blessed to see a bit of footage from a previous blogger trip on this video. I am getting so excited! Hearing stories from people who have gone on mission trips heightens my anticipation.
Like the conversation Rev and I had this past Sunday morning with a family who had recently returned from a mission trip to Haiti. We were touched by the young adult daughter’s comment when she said, “It was hard, but I liked it. It was harder coming back home.”
We asked her “why” and she replied, “Because we have so much that we don’t need.”
They also shared with us a Haitian proverb that says, “God gives, but He doesn’t share.” The point of this proverb is not that God is stingy. He provides enough resources for everyone to have the provision they need, but He leaves the responsibility of sharing to us.
I am thankful that World Vision has provided a way for us to share. Would like to know more about how you can share with a child in Bolivia? Click on the sponsor a child button in the column to the right.
