I have a confession....
We have a WORLDly family!!
I mean, really, really WORLDly! And I'm proud of it!!
We've got WORLDly maps, globes, books, pictures, and even world-shaped post it notes!! We eat WORLDly foods from different countries, sing happy birthday in a bunch of WORLDly languages, and hang out with other very WORLDly people!! Long before our family packed up our life to head across the ocean to work for a humanitarian organization, God had put a love for the WORLD in our hearts! So when He said GO, it wasn't such a foreign place to us! That's why it's our our passion to help other families and churches raise WORLDly kids too!
If you are not sure where to start, take the 1st of 10 things, and just do something! We believer that step ONE is to get to know the World! Go out today and buy a map....or sew one, google one, or color one! Get to know the WORLD! There are 195 countries with 7 Billion people! Check out this WORLD METER for some cool details! Why do we need to know? Because on each continent, in each country, in every city, there are people who need to know about Jesus. Millions of them HAVE NEVER HEARD!! And we have the privilege and responsibility to pray for them and go to them to share the GOOD NEWS! What a HUGE task! And before you go on about your day.... check out this cool-hip video that helps learn ALL the countries of the WORLD! It's been playing at our house on repeat all morning!
