GO NOW, BE PREPARED TO BE WRECKED

KISSESFROMKATIE.BLOGSPOT.COM ... I sit here working on Amazima stuff for Katie and feel helpless to actually DO - feed a starving child, love a child who has no parents, heal their wounds, or just read to one of the Karomajong children about Jesus ... I know I am where I am suppose to be working from the computer for Amazima, telling people about Katie's journey, and watering the seeds she plants, but there are days when I want to be on the ground in Africa TOUCHING THE FACE OF JESUS ...

Be WRECKED w/ me won't you ...

19 kind words.:

Wrecked. Yep, that says it all. I read Katie's blog about the two new babies she must return, and I about flew out of my chair, wanting to go scoop them up. Meanwhile...here I sit, very little money. But Gwen...I do have some time. If there is EVER anything I could do to help, won't you please let me know?!?! I so long to "be a part" of things, and of course I do my best to spread the word, to talk about Amazima & Katie, and to pray. Somehow...that doesn't seem like enough, given the circumstances.

Wrecked. Yep. I am wrecked.

ALREADY TOTALLY WRECKED BY HER!

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY HIM!

I feel the breath of His life through every word she writes and speaks.

I can't even imagine being 20 yrs old and doing all that God has brought her through and yet to come!!!

I love her and your heart that is shared here Gwen!

Our hearts are ONE in Christ Jesus!

I pray to be on the ground with her someday seeing Jesus in the eyes of His precious children!

Hugs sweet friend!

LOVE YOU sister..

Erica said...

I'm with you. I long to be there. To DO more. To touch, feel, see, and LOVE on these sweet babies. Yet I wait for Gods perfect timing and I advocate for those who can't speak for themselves.

jessy said...

Can you tell me what agency you are using? jsullens@sbcglobal.net
I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

KT said...

I just read it and then came to your blog to read that you are wrecked too.
You'll be there soon enough and we'll all get to hear how God uses you while you are there.

Gwen, I have been following your blog now for a couple of months. I don't know if I found you or Katie first but I have to say ... I AM WRECKED! TOTALLY AND COMPLETLY WRECKED! You can read todays blog post and see exactly where my heart is, where my mind is and that my resolve is solid to not allow even ONE more day to pass without making a difference in just one life! The life of just one who has been cast aside by the world yet held so close by our Lord. I have spent the day sifting through the pictures on an international adoption website and coresponding with their director. As a single mom to 3, one of which was adopted domestically, I am overwhelmed by the prospect of what I believe God is getting ready to do in our lives.... As Francis Chan would say .. it is Crazy Love! Crazy love for my savior, for my creator, for my Lord, for the ONE who created all of my children, even the ones I have yet to meet .... Oh the world will say I am nuts, I can hear it now and for once, I dont even care! For i know, Obedience is better than sacrifice and the Lord calls me to Love my neigbor as myself, speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and to care for the widows and the orphans in their distress! The world can say what they want .... The can't touch me I am already WRECKED!!!!!!!!! Thanks for keeping the cause in front of us, for being so creative in helping us to care for them all! i pray for you. I pray that God will continue to sustaine you and provide for your every need! That through you and others like you He will multiply the workers to answer the call!
Peace and Blessings,
sara

Jenn in GA said...

yes, sister, this post of hers wrecked me too.

Christie said...

Oh girl, I already was - the other day when she posted it.

Sobbing at my little desk!

I'm with you - feeling I should be there making the difference - but God puts us on the fields where he needs us at different times. Maybe one day?

Hugs

I just read most of the post! OH my WORD! i feel you! I wanna be right there with her! but we can do our part here and help to make a HUGE DENT in the 144( I subtracted Josie Love, Joseph, and Daisy.. :) hehe)

Lindsey said...

Gwen~I totally understand you. I have a very good friend who is moving her family to Uganda and I was telling her that I am so jealous because I think it is so difficult to be the ones that stay behind and advocate here.

Wrecked, ruined, on bended knee.....

Jewels of My Heart said...

I too am wrecked...... oh, how I am wrecked...... I keep praying for Jesus to use me...... and yet here we are still waiting upon Him to bring Isabella home and move into the mission field. He has been opening doors for us to evangelize and for street witnessing.... but I look at you and see how you are helping in so many ways that I have longed to do and I ask God to please open the door for our family too. You are helping! You are making a difference to the orphans and for the kingdom of God.

Kim said...

May we remain wrecked...and shed lots and lots of tears. For there He will allow us to see Him more clearly. Remember to keep an eye out for us when you get there to pick up your two babes (wink)...I love and share your brokeness because it points to our Amazing God.

Holly said...

I just posted about Katie today...I don't know much about her but the most recent 2 posts on her blog tell so much.

Leah said...

Wrecked. And whole. I couldn't walk away if I tried.

Love

I'm going in December and I can't even imagine how wrecked I'm going to be. Praying for her & her sick babies.

and 2 became 5 said...

have no fear. God is using Katie's story & the stories of many others to completely plow my heart up. I'm overwhelmed & ashamed at these eyes being closed for too long. I pray that i will continue to be wrecked & am grateful for an awakening....eager to be His hands & feet & impatient to learn just how...in the meantime....I'm going to do something.
