God is continuing this process of breaking my heart for the women of Asia.
I'm loving it!
I have wanted Him to give me a holy passion with a specific target for the work we do here. Not everyone on our staff has a "niche" within the ministry that they love most, but many do. I wanted to really be broken for something specific.
Someone once said that it's dangerous to ask God to do such a thing. I would agree. I don't think I'll ever be the same. But, I think it's just as dangerous to go our whole lives without asking God to grow us in this way and give us a bigger vision. He commands us to care in tangible ways.
Sometime soon I want to write down every single little specific thing God has been doing as I've been on this journey. Sometimes it's been as simple as hearing something spoken that I just read that moved me.
Today, I read about women in Goa. Don't know where it's at? Neither did I a few years ago!
GFA has done an entire special on the women's ministry in Goa. You'll learn more about the physical location of Goa. There is a photo slideshow of the Church in the Red Light district. You'll hear a woman's story of shame turned into rejoicing.
I encourage you to take a moment and read as many of these short stories as you can. Let your heart be challenged and changed for a people who don't enjoy the luxuries we take for granted. Ask God to break your heart for what breaks His. After all, that's what following Him is all about.
