How about these guys for neighbors in Cochin? #India
I will be honest — I do find myself struggling with thoughts of …. “well, whats after this?…. what is all this leading to? … Am I just going to return home and resume the life I had before India? … will this just be another “mission trip” .. ???” These are all thoughts and questions that I have and I believe they are legitimate concerns, BUT I quickly remind myself that God has all of that under control and my only job is to obey Him and continue to serve Him where He has placed me. I could really use your prayers in this area — to not worry about any of that, but to really focus on what God wants me to do NOW!
A few days ago Fast Company wrote about Jacob Tillman, a young skateboarder who is attempting to raise money on Indiegogo for his sister Lydia’s reconstructive jaw surgery. Lydia was raped, beaten, doused with bleach, and nearly burned to death—but because of her grace and resilience, she survived the horrific attack and helped convict her attacker.
Since our story about this initiative to crowdsource social justice first ran on Monday, other media outlets have followed suit—and Jacob’s Indiegogo coffers have grown from under $4,000 to over $36,000.
Jacob still has 87 days to reach his $65,000 goal.
