Take Action

"There is enough for everybody's need, but not for everybody's greed." - Gahndi

How true is that. Why can't we, those who have enough step up to the plate and give a helping hand to those who have nothing?

This is my challenge to you: take action and do what you can because you can.

30 Hour Famine

I participated in my first 30 hour famine over the past couple days! It was not easy to not eat for a little more than 30 hours but I did successfully manage it. Friday I realized I tend to eat out of boredom and since I couldn't do that I was very productive! I got a ton of laundry done, including all my horse stuff and I tidied up my room.

Once at the Church it was fun to do all the different games, even running around freezing cold in the rain for a half an hour looking for flags. We watched a really touching video about a guy and his group of friends who went to Ethiopia and they told the story about a little boy who's mother was dying from AIDS. Totally brought me to tears. Then right after it was my turn to spend a half an hour in the prayer room. Candles were lit all over a table with a list of the devastating things going on in our world. I brought in my IPod and prayed and worshiped. It went by all too fast.

During that time I again got the strong pulling that I need to go to Africa as soon as I can. Maybe I can start saving up over the summer and go on a trip over Christmas break with Mocha Club. Last year they offered trips at that time and it would be the best timing. Please pray for me that I will do God's will whatever it might be and go wherever it might take me.

Happy Easter! I went home with Candace again and we chilled at her mom's Friday night. Then on Saturday we spent a good chunk of time watching The Big Bang Theory. Which is my new favorite show by the way! Total real nerd humor :) I love it. Then that night we dyed eggs.

Then Sunday morning I partook in the family traditions of standing on the stairs as the easter bunny came and left us little gifts around the house. He even left me my own basket full of goodies and candy.

Then we went to their Grandma's house for dinner. Something they always do is catch fish with bread and nets. Candace and Jess both caught fish, I got really close but to no avail :(.

After dinner I headed back to school and made a stop at Rider to see Stephen for a few hours. I got a tour of the campus and it is HUGE comparred to Centenary! Then we hung out at the SigEp Fraternity houseand I met a few of Stephen's brothers. Then I continued on my way back to school.

Matthew 25:40 "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

What really would you be missing out on by giving something up so another might have what they need?
