"It's not glamorous."
We've heard so many maxims about the nature of ministry and missions. It's spelled, W-O-R-K. It's not all fun and games.
We live in this incredible space where we greatly enjoy the place we live and the work we do, and at the same time are overwhelmed at the enormity of the task at hand.
Kids' songs and candy treats won't turn this around. Money will accomplish nothing. The real problem lies in the spirit.
When we're told of an 11-year-old raping a 3-year-old, taxis raining bullets on one another as pedestrians walk by disinterested, newborn children daily abandoned at a garbage dump, you can know the problem lies deeper than economics or culture.
That's where you come in.
You are our biggest asset. A spiritual problem is only solved in the spirit. Will you join us in praying for the families and community in which we work?
Pray that the back of poverty--that filthy demonic stronghold--is broken. Pray for mothers to stand up and defend their daughters, and for fathers to understand their value and turn to their children. Pray for the Lord to give us strategies to bring revelation to the community we work in and empower them to break the strongholds over their region.
It's not all fun and games. But it is our great privilege and joy. Thanks for being a huge part of our team!
