It’s that time again… the time when I can’t help but feel a little jealous that I’m not headed overseas with the Compassion Bloggers. Next week a group of bloggers are heading to El Salvador to see Compassion International’s work first-hand. I work with Compassion on a regular basis but I have yet to get an opportunity to visit a community where Compassion is fighting poverty. Hence the mild jealousy. So, while I pray for my own shortcomings we can all join in prayer for the bloggers, the people they will encounter in El Salvador, and especially for all of us who will be living vicariously through them via their blog posts, images, and videos.
I pray that we will spend more time listening to God than talking over Him so that we might hear His call to action in our lives next week.
