The Journey Continues... Finally

Two years have passed since my last posting, and there has been a lot of beautiful adventurous journeys happening. The journey never really stopped, but my blogging did for some reason. Not for lack of ideas or happenings to blog about, but just no particular reason.

However! Now is the time for these little ramblings of mine to resume. I am about to embark on a new adventurous journey, one in which I am supremely excited about. I have no idea where this particular journey will take me, but I do know that I have spent a great deal of time praying that God would guide me in the right direction, so I have no doubt this journey will be just as beautiful as the others thus far in my life.

I have begun working with a non-profit organization called the Remedy Foundation, and we will be working to provide sustainable solutions to people in need. You may be wondering what exactly does that mean... well it just means we will be doing what we can to help those who need it, and those who

may be overlooked or ignored. Just like it says in Matthew 25:31 - 40, "When He finally arrives, blazing in beauty and all his angels with him, the Son of Man will take his place on his glorious throne. Then all the nations will be arranged before him and He will sort the people out, much as a shepherd sorts out sheep and goats, putting sheep to his right and goats to his left. Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what's coming to you in this kingdom. It's been ready for you since the world's foundation. And here's why:

  • I was hungry and you fed me, 
  • I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, 
  • I was homeless and you gave me a room, 
  • I was shivering and you gave me clothes, 
  • I was sick and you stopped to visit, 
  • I was in prison and you came to me.'
Then those 'sheep' are going to say, 'Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?' Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me - you did it to me." 

I truly believe God has called me to be like the hands and feet of Jesus, and so I plan to live that out in whatever way He leads me. This is not a calling just to me, but my whole family, and we will all be getting involved as we discover the needs of those we encounter.

So! What does all this mean. Well first, I will still be involved with the NGO I have worked with in the past (PNP Global), and who knows what other groups or places God will lead. Secondly, as for the Remedy Foundation, I leave tomorrow on an initial partner meeting let's call it. I will be meeting with groups in Thailand, Malaysia, India, and Sri Lanka. The next 2 weeks will be a whirlwind of travel around the world, or meetings, and discussions, and seeing where can we begin to partner in order to start providing some sustainable solutions to the 'least of these' or those who may be ignored or overlooked.

Everyday it seems God is opening more doors to those who are in need, or those who are connected to those in need. So, I sit tonight, on this eve of one of the greatest adventurous journeys I have ever embarked on, just wondering, which direction do I go. Which group is the place to partner, one, many, a few. Only God knows, and I will be obedient, and just follow the way in which He leads. For now, at this moment, He is leading to Thailand, and from there on, and on. So I say farewell for tonight, and will update again from Thailand in a few days!
