Some of us do anyway.
|Alece Ronzino aka GritandGlory|
Alece has spearheaded this blogger's mission trip to Ethiopia that begins today. Food for the Hungry is sending six bloggers, a photographer, and some staff. These six bloggers must post daily of the sights and sounds of Ethiopia and Food for the Hungry - their thoughts and hearts for what they are experiencing.
Please share in Alece's week-long mission trip on her blog: www.gritandglory.com beginning today.
For those who truly live in the 21st Century, you can follow these blogger-misisonaries' tweets at: http://tweetchat.com/room/fhbloggers.
On Thursday afternoon - 2 PM - Eastern Standard Time, Alece and the other bloggers will be having a LIVE Twitter chat at that same Twitter spot. You Tweeters can join in the conversation if you like. I have no idea how to do that, so if anyone in my Circle can help me figure it all out, I'd appreciate it. Cause I do need HELP!
Blogging has become a powerful force in today's world. Companies are using us as a way to market their businesses. And successfully, I might add. We have a voice. People listen, peopled are moved. Some make decisions off of what they read. This is Food for the Hungry's hope, I'm sure - that people will be moved, and be decisive, to help their cause.
A blogger's mission trip. Birthed in the heart of my daughter.
As Alece's marriage ended and she had to give up their Mission and move back to the United States, her dream of a blogger's mission trip seemed to have died along with all her other dreams.
But, we have a resurrecting God!
And He resurrected this dream in Alece's heart. No, it's not happening with her own ministry, but it is happening all the same - and in Alece's beloved Africa! It is for a time such as this.
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. ~ Romans 11:29
So, I'm inviting my Circle to join Alece's Circle for the next week. Share in her heart's journey to Ethiopia. See the land, the children, and their needs through Alece's eyes. Read Alece's first-hand reports of how Food for the Hungry is making a difference in this world.
If nothing else, please rejoice with me for the goodness of our Father to my daughter - His servant - in restoring the years the locust had eaten from her life; and in praying for all on this blogger's mission trip - for their health and safety.
And if you are so inclined, pass on the news of this important blogger's mission trip within your Circles. Let's make our blogger's voices be heard!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
