In the last week I have been to a Young Life banquet, where I heard stories about lives being changed and people growing and pouring into the next generation; a fundraising dinner for Greyfriars Classical Academy, where we heard a talk by Stephen Mansfield about generation-changers and heroism; and a weekend-long meeting of the board of Moldova World Children's Fund, where we talked about the many lives being changed in Moldova because of that organization. Whew!
How wonderful to hear and see actual people, with actual names, in real situations, being helped, changed, loved, and served. Good things are happening -- here in Charlotte, and around the world!
If anyone else wants to be inspired, here are a couple videos describing some of the good things happening.
