Ministering to Orphans :: 11 Ways You Can Get Involved on the Local Level

My trip to Africa over Christmas break in 2007 ruined future Christmases in America for me. I remember experiencing a true grieving process. I was sickened to see how far American Christians had fallen prey to the consumerism, entitlement, and secularism compared to my Kenyan friends.

Your Story Is Not My Story

In my college ministry, we had a Valentine’s event every year. We would get dressed up, sometimes be matched up in groups of guys and girls, making it a special event where guys and girls can interact in a safe, social setting.

We never would have expected him to follow us into the rundown apartment building. We’d only met him the day before, and even then we only spoke for a little while.
