Good stuff Hailey. Thanks for sharing. There is a ministry I just found out about that helps train those from Asian countries to become "media missionaries". Here is a link. http://emergemissions.org/main/project/medialight/
That sounds really cool! I think media is a great way to go about things in a lot of ways. (I mean, hello, I want to make all kinds of media with my life, so...) But something I am really getting at here is the personal relationship and investment in the individual, rather than simply "creating media," and also going into the highways and byways to go after the least, last and the lost. The people who may have no way to escape the situations they're in....the hopeless and broken.
God takes the foolish to shame to shame the wise, the weak to shame the strong. He takes the sick and despised, the things that are not, to nullify the things that are.
It's these people who are going to change the world. I'm tired of putting such an extreme amount of value on certain people groups, while nearly completely neglacting the people that God declared to do the greatest works through...it's through our pain, our weakness, that God can do everything we can't, all to his glory.
He said: "“My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you.”
Paul said:For this reason I am happy when I have weaknesses, insults, hard times, sufferings, and all kinds of troubles for Christ. Because when I am weak, then I am truly strong.
I say: For this reason, praise God that I grew up with Aspergers. Praise God that I faced the hardships as I did as a kid with bullying, rejection, and my Mom's illness. Let the love of God overflow from my heart, because I'm giving everything for Him, and I'm never going back. I write this in tears...but they're tears of joy. Praise God for whatever comes out of my life, and praise God that all of our pain, hardship, and struggle that is meant to change the world, to save lives, to transform society. All glory to God, for He is enough. <3
It's only in our brokenness that God can work miracles.
I think I saw a ministry like you're talking about except with music. It's a good idea!
