I think its amazing how much doing a project like this inspires growth in other areas. During this semester, thankfully early on, I decided to become a better student. I woudn’t have called myself a bad student before, but I’ve decided that since I have been so blessed as to have completed one degree and continue in studies for a Master’s degree, it is more God-glorifying for me to decide to extract the absolute most from my studies and assignments
I think its more economically and socially responsible too. In respect to those brothers and sisters of mine who do not have college degrees or even high school diplomas, and in gratitude to God for blessing me with a mind, supportive family and friends and educational funds, I have vowed to be the best student I can for the next two years (because hopefully I can finish in two).
Those are my reflections. Actually its just one, huh? Well, we’ve come to the almost end of another month, and I’m so excited to send this month’s Compassion Funds to Kosmos Ministries’ food outreach program.
Next month, for the first week, I will be in Mexico, and when I return I’ll have more to say on the charity for the month of April. Actually, April’s soul collisions will happen right here in my hometown of Atlanta, GA!
Recently, while chaperoning my church’s youth group trip to Winterfest in Gatlinburg, TN, I made a new friend. Chandler McAnally is a Senior at the North Atlanta Church of Christ, and runs a homeless ministry in downtown Atlanta! I’m so inspired that a young person has run with the call to be Jesus to the poor.
This project is taking lots of exciting directions! More to come soon…
