This past weekend I went to a training session held by Go Corps, an organization dedicated to connecting students with mid-term missions for 2 year stints. It was hosted by Biola University and about 20 staff and students from various campuses across the country attended, including Wheaton, Colorado Christian University, and Trinity International.
It was a great time and I really felt recharged. I’m so impressed with the quality of the men and women I met. Anyone who makes broad generalizations about how Christians are hypocrites need to meet people like these. They are authentic individuals who love people dearly and have already given up many things in their lives for the sake of the call of God. They intend to give up even more. Oh, and anyone who generalizes Christians as joyless and dour should meet people like these! I laughed harder than I had in a while. This is all just a testimony to what God can do in one’s life. Who but a magnificent God can turn naturally self-centered, pitiful human beings into such genuine, loving, others-centered men and women? That just hits me.
GoCorps is a legit organization too. They break down the biggest barriers to students serving overseas so you can go to the least-reached and poorest people on the globe. Their website is http://gocorps.org Check it out!
