Every year our church does a fundraising campaign called “Be Rich“. The term “Be Rich” comes from 1 Timothy 6:18 – “Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” Its one of my favorite things our church does each year.

Thanks to everyone that supported Mannah with donations and prayers! She was able to raise all of the money needed for the globalX trip to San Salvador and the departure date has finally arrived! I dropped Mannah off at the Atlanta airport this morning at 7:00 for her trip to El Salvador! I am so excited to hear about her trip and see some pictures. I only have pictures from this morning at the airport so far but I will upload more pictures soon. Please continue praying for Mannah and her team that they will have a safe trip and that they will be used by God in a mighty way. Continue reading globalx trip to San Salvador, El Salvador PICTURES!

globalX is North Point Ministries’ international division. Their mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by serving the international community.
They believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. So they created globalX trips, opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Their belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of their churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.

When you first heard about the recent calamity in Haiti, what was your initial response? Was it sadness, depression, pity, compassion, or grief? How long did that emotion stay with you?
As you continue to hear about the chaos and depravity in Haiti, has it already become old news to you? Do you change the station for the promise of a possible new tragedy or celebrity mishap to offer you some sort of entertainment? Do you hear the fundraisers and pleas for resources and quickly dismiss them because you think that someone wealthier or more powerful than you is in more of a position to help?
Most of us have a natural tendency to assume some one else will take care of it. But, as Christians, those “someone elses” are supposed to be US! Reflect with me on the following: Continue reading What Is Our “Christian” Responsibility to Haiti?
