Not all that Different

You know I have figured out that we are not all that different. We all face storms. We all face things that make it tough to sleep at night. We all do things we don’t like. We all have needs. We have a need to love and to be loved. We all have desires, some good some bad. We all probably have things that we don’t want others to know. We are not all that Different.

We maybe from different cultures, maybe different sizes, maybe different personalities. But we are not all that different.

Here is an email thought from Anita that had a conversation about this on a mission trip to Benin.

Your message this Sunday reminded me of a conversation that the team I went to Benin with was having. We had a doctor from Benin that gave us a crash course on Tropical Diseases and he was saying that the people become victims of their environment. I thought to myself that people where we live become victims of their environment too,(fast food, crime, lifestyle).

We were also saying how the people seemed so needy and was looking for something and we were saying that we find the same situations in America that people are needy and looking for something.... that is Jesus. One of the best things about the clinic that we set up in Benin was that we were able to give them quality healthcare and then pray with them and share the love of Jesus. I was thinking and my heart feels so strongly I wish that we could do that in our area...give quality health care to the needy, pray with them and share the love of Jesus. I just don't know how to do that...

I think at the heart of the matter we all want this world to be a better place
