This is a picture of some of the children in Balan who gathered around as we shared with them our purpose for being in Balan, our promise to return and our commitment to provide them water, food and education.  When we mentioned water they clapped, when we mentioned school they clapped but when we mentioned food they cheered!

We are praising God as we received our first donation toward the purchase of food for Balan and shortly after another donation came in.  THANK YOU!  I am humbled to be apart of what God is doing and to be able to experience the Glory of the Lord.

…we have an inaccurate view of God.  We see Him as a benevolent Being who is satisfied when people manage to fit Him into their lives in some small way.  Jesus came humbly as a servant, but He never begs us to give Him some small part of ourselves. He commands everything from His followers.  –Crazy Love by Francis Chan
