I just found out last week that I'll be the World Vision Tour Representative when we go on with Avalon. That means I'm in charge of training all the World Vision volunteers for the concerts each night and setting up the World Vision Table. I'm pretty pumped about it.
You can check out their web site at www.worldvision.org (I don't know how to make that link work inside the blog, someone needs to teach me how to do that.)
I was amazed to find out how much they do. I feel so honored to work for an organization of integrity and one that is so efficient. They only have 13% overhead costs and the rest goes to the children/communities.
Some of you remember two years ago when we started Grace Community Church we had a ladies Bible Study that met at Kelly Bullock's house. We went around the room and dreamed about how we'd like to serve at Grace. I said that I wanted to find a way to get money from the wealthy and give to the poor. I wanted to be the vessel to do that, but didn't know how and just figured that it would be through the local church.
Isn't it amazing how God blows our dreams out of the water. Each night we are on tour I'll be used as the vessel to transfer wealth from those who sign up to pledge a child to the child themselves by way of an amazing organization called World Vision.
Seeing the videos and learning about this organization made me want to take a look at our family and see what we are actually doing to spread the gospel through love by meeting needs.
So I pose the question what are you doing to transform lives?
Sorry this was such a long post. (can you tell I'm excited that I have a new job!)
