“My passion is to help children,” said the voice over the phone. “I know you operate schools and homes in many countries,” he continued. “I have researched your work and know what you are doing and want to help you.”
One of the calls I had made was to India to speak to a friend who is a retired pastor working with children. He shared with me how he grew up living on a dump and eating with the dogs and the pigs until a pastor found him, took him home, and educated him. Now he has dedicated his life to training health and Bible workers and caring for disadvantaged children.
When I told him that we wanted to buy property to put up some buildings to care for children, he promised to find a couple of acres. “No,” I said. “That is too little. We will need at least 20-40 acres so that the children can live securely, with water, and with land for agriculture.”
“But that is very expensive here in India“, the pastor protested.
“That is what the donor is willing to pay for,” I informed him.
“Then God is surely hearing our prayers,” he said with tears in his voice. “Maybe finally He will make our dreams come true so we can properly care for these dear children.”
Yes Lord, the time has come for you to act. Lift up you Mighty arm and provide for the needs of your loving workers so they can properly do the work you have called them to do in this last generation.
I am so glad to be called to be an ambassador for the King of Kings. It is the highest calling available in the universe today. Have you accepted the call?
