One of Seg-Way key new initiatives is to help students start Witnessing/Discipling Communities off campus among the poor. I am excited about the partnership with Hope Unlimited. Hope Unlimited is a non-profit organization based in Brazil that helps street children by providing them a productive future and eternal hope. I will be sharing more about this work in an upcoming post.
On a different note, I want to share about the transformation that occurs in us when we choose to live intentionally in a community. It’s a kind of transformation that starts from the inside and mirrors on the outside. The one that changes our spirit and soul and reflects in our character as we relate to God and to one another in a community. Sharing space with one or more people that aren’t family in a sense of blood relation builds character. It reveals and kills our selfishness if we allow it. It teaches us to put our needs and wants after other people needs and wants. Most of all, it is a great avenue to learn to forgive others after repeated offenses and to forgive ourselves when we fail to extend grace over and over. It finally forces us to reach beyond our strengths and to trust a God who “has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness”. 2 Peter 1: 3 . It has been a privilege to hear testimonies of this transformation occurring in many of the residents at our Christian Community house.
Please, be praying with me for financial provision.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving break :)!
