To be perfectly honest, sometimes I still get nervous; (Part 1/3)
Nervous for my team, for myself-- our safety on the road after stories of abductions and rape. Nervous for our hearts and the amount of emotions it stirs when sitting with the families of those who have been abducted or the women who have encountered rape.
To love much is to risk much, and sometimes I feel like we don't wade into the deep end but we jump head first.
To love is to be vulnerable and to open your heart , Not only to those who live within your comfort zone, but to those who carry more brokenness than you can possibly imagine.
Justice Rising exists because we dare to believe that "justice is LOVE, correcting anything that stands against love" (MLKJ) and war is a great violation of love.
And so together, we tuck ourselves in the unending love of Jesus and believe his love can mend nations.
We traveled way out into the red zone last week. Though the risk was high the locals begged us to come. Well, we didn't really need much convincing, we just opened our first High School in the region and we had to go celebrate. Here's a slightly long winded 3 part story of the adventures to get there and back.
