Together, we make the world better!

Today I was at church and found out there are 3 other members of my church going on a medical mission to Peru with an organization called Medical Missions International. This weekend my Patricia did a 5k Run for the Cure. A friend of mine, Isaac, is doing a 5k run to end depression. I am going to Guyana. We are all supported by all kinds of people who give their hard earned money. I know so many people who have given their time, money, effort, and other means, and it is all working toward making the world a better place.

Every day there are news stories about crimes and evil deeds, it is important to take time to focus that for every old lady that gets mugged, there is another old lady receiving treatment for an illness because someone gave time, money, or effort to provide it.  For every kid that gets bullied, there is a kid that is supported by a program run by volunteers or funded by donations.  

My personal belief system is that people are made in the imagine of God.  I think that people have a drive to do good for themselves and for other because that's a reflection of God's desire.  There will always be pain and suffering in the world, but there will also always be people willing to sacrifice to make it better.  I'm very excited to be a reflection of God's will to the people of Guyana!
