January Twenty-10 Update

Greetings from the Middle East!

Today I saw the pyramids and rode a camel named M.O.S.E.S.

He is the best camel ever, and I will debate you on that!

My time in Egypt has been challenging, encouraging, refreshing and emotional.

January was packed with...

- Reading the "Bible," "Simple Spirituality" and "Making Poverty Personal - Taking the Poor as Serious as the Bible Does."

- Answering the question, "What truths does God give us [through the Bible] to combat poverty and how do we NOW apply those principles to make poverty history? [A photo video is in the making]

- Interviewing the founder of an arts program with street children

- Meeting and encouraging the photography branch of that art program

- Visiting the pyramids!!!

- Continuing to learn how to live in community

- Eating falafels and then eating more falafels - Y.U.M. [Maybe too many and need to start a "falafel free diet"? hmmm...]

- Discussing how art can combat poverty and what my role is [Art Center of sorts?]

- Catching up with my leader, Paul, who visited from Kona.

I travel north Sunday and will be moving "non-stop" through the end of February. "On the road again..."

Ways to pray:

- Sore back and neck

- Peaceful, deep and lovely dream filled sleep

- Money [Currently receiving $275/mnth out of $1,800/mnth - still needing $1,525]

- Opportunities to pick the brains of more people in the art/injustice field

- Peace when the future seems unknown, scary and a big black hole

- Insight as to what my extended time in Central Asia will look like [Brainstorming ideas to stay in India a bit longer - talking ideas over with Paul]

- Constant community living = learning to LOVE in word and deed

- Insight/wisdom as I communicate/speak into lives of my friends

Thank you for believing that what I do is impacting lives. My heart always knows the truth but moments filled with lies try to tell me otherwise. The road "feels" lonely at times...

Until I think of YOU and realize, I am not crazy... Well crazy, maybe, but following HIS leading - yes.

Go to MY BLOG for more stories and photos of my journey!

Going because He told me to and not looking back or too far into the future, but taking one day at a time because otherwise I would have a panic attack,

Yep, that's me - Lindsay.
