And I just want to show them how much he loves us. I can’t wait for the day where my schooling does not effect how I can show the love of Christ to others. Recently, I’ve been looking into an organization called Orphan Outreach. They go on mission trips to 3rd world countries and teach in orphanages and minister to the children, children who have no earthly parents and have never felt the love of a family. I work at a Christian camp with kids between the ages of 7 -12 and it’s awesome, don’t get me wrong. But I think it would be something completely different to work with those kids who don’t just go somewhere for a week, they actually live at the orphanages. Its not just a get away.
Just thinking about spending months in the Dominican Republic, teaching children how to speak English, reading them the bible, teaching them about God, showing them how much God cares for them, all of it! I want to be apart of their backpack donation drive next semester and do it at Shawnee. It’s where we would collect backpacks and school supplies for the children in the other countries who can’t afford them any other way. Something so small like backpacks and pencils we take for granted.
I think working with them will help me a lot with not only getting a job here working with teens who are abused, addicted to drugs, and struggling, but also help me help them. I wish I could find a Christian organization that deals with social work things, but I can’t seem to find one. I found an organization called centerstone that offers a lot of the stuff i want to do, but it isn’t Christian I’m afraid, but that’s okay, it may be a way to spread the gospel to people who haven’t heard it before.
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. – John 14:18
