Tears of the Saints

UPDATE ON SON OF GOD ORPHANAGE- In an uncharacteristic move by the Haitian government, the orphanage has been shut down, and UNICEF has taken all the children to new homes. Amazing!!! Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and got the word out! Read the whole story here:

So for today...I saw this video a few weeks ago, and it struck me as one of the most challenging and profound things I have ever seen. And it is only a glimpse of the brokenness we have chosen not to see, or have never had the opportunity to see. The reality of what God has called us to becomes very real when watching this. It is not a game, its not words in a book, its not a metaphor- it is God's commissioning for His sons and daughters to spread His light to the nations.

I realize that this may not be easy to watch. But in order to be moved to any kind of action, in order for God to break our hearts for what breaks His, we have to open our eyes. We are an easily distracted people. But the reality of the countless people who need to be loved is one of the greatest realities there is.

"Having seen all this you can choose to look the other way; but you can never say again, 'I did not know.'
-William Wilberforce

1625 children were forced to live on the streets
1667 children died from malnutrition or disease
115 children became prostitutes
257 children were orphaned because of HIV/Aids.

It gets worse...
2 billion people in the world today have never ever heard of Jesus. 1% of missions financial support, goes to reaching those unreached people. 30000 people starve to death every day.

'You are the light of the world' –– Jesus talking to his disciples.

Are we being the 'salt and light' that we are called to be?
