“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here I am. Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8)
God’s plan! He has a certain plan and call for each of us. He prepares us from the moment we are born. We never know when or where he will send us but if we trust and say “YES LORD” he will never leave us. Tanzania was a country I first visited in 2009. My eyes, ears and heart were opened when I met “HIM” through the weak, poor and those that live without anything. I was filled to the brim through all of those I met, sat with, walked next to and began conversations with. The needs were great, and yes this is what he was asking of me – to serve the least of the least. So it wasn’t if or when, it was now and how do I serve? Grace has been the path – Simple Hope is God’s work – I am his willing servant.
“Love God with all your heart and soul and love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-40)
It is only by the grace of God that I live where I do…with easy access to water, food and a roof over my head, opportunities for employment and freedom. In Tanzania (and places around the globe) many of these comforts are only prayerful dreams. God has shown me the strife that many endure daily. He has laid it upon my heart and equipped me to reach out in Christian love to serve those who struggle daily, both in Tanzania and here in the US. The best way I know how to humbly thank and glorify Him for His grace is to answer His call to simply serve His people with hope.
