Letter from Birmingham

 Today, mark’s the 50th anniversary of  MLK's letters from Birmingham.  The words are profound and filled with moral conviction.  A conviction to see the world for not what it was, but for what it could be.  Martin Luther King had a desire to impact the world in such a way that others could see the power of scriptures, which taught him the power of perseverance and love. Jesus tells us repeatedly about the power of love. 

Today, 50 years later we have made profound strides in race relations, but we still have a long way to go.  Sadly there are more human beings in slavery than any other point in history.   Dr. King questioned the position of the modern church in his letters and wondered why were they not stepping to stop the injustice.  We have been fortunate to travel to a variety of places and have seen with our own eyes the plight of poverty and continuous abuse to the fatherless.   The behind scenes story of your brother is tragic, the hope for others exists in our trust of the Lord.

My prayer is you never forget what you have seen and felt in those moments. I pray as you seek to grow with Christ,  you always leave your passports and hearts open for his calling.  Professionally, work as hard as can and set the example for others to follow.  Earn as much money as you can, to support the mission to end slavery.

Your amazing beautiful children.  I am so blessed.  Please let's continue to find ways to help children around the world.  Because they are God's children and he allowed us an opportunity to impact their lives for his glory.  

I love you always and forever!
