Top photos from last month on the World Race.  This is the team that Karen and I pour our lives into.  After spending September in Viet Nam, they’ve spent this last month in Cambodia and yesterday flew to Bangkok and Myanmar.  In each place they confront new pain and seek to bring a measure of hope.  Enjoy.

is prostitution going on every night on the floor below where I
sleep…” “…The battle started the day I met Iris. (not her real
name) The night I saw her she walked down the dark corridor of the main
floor of our hotel escorted by an older gentleman in red silk pajamas. 
As the man opened the do
or to
room number 7 she looked back over her shoulder intently into my eyes
with this look of desperation and emptiness.” – photo by either Amy

  • “she looked back over her shoulder intently into my eyes with this look of desperation and emptiness.”

    This made me cry.

    I take a ministry team into a strip club on Saturday mornings. At first, they were pretty shocked we would step foot in the place. Then they braced themselves for the condemnation they thought was coming. It never came.

    Our purpose in going is to let Jesus love them through us.

    Most people are eager for prayer and we have seen miraculous healings. It’s as if God is saying, “Hey, I’m here and I love you no matter what.”

    But the greatest miracle we see is God giving people Hope and healing broken hearts.

    It’s amazing how Jesus meets people wherever they are.

  • Smashing photos here. So many strong associations for all those wonderful guys on the team involved in this, I am sure. Each picture with a story, each story full of both heartache and another way God met someone and expressed His love and mercy. This is good to see in picture. Thanks, lol Cxx

  • Wow, thanks for the picture captions that share your vision for hope and change for hurting people. I so want my eyes to see like Jesus does – for my children, spouse, and anyone I come in contact with, that I see what they can become with Jesus’ love and power, not simply where they seem stuck today. I am so grateful that Jesus has seen me that way and he never gives up! Author and Counselor, Sandra D. Wilson, writes, “only when we deeply accept that we are both totally sinful and totally forgiven can we deeply accept God’s acceptance.” Paul reminds us too in Romans 8, that nothing can stop God’s love; so Seth and Karen and all you World Racers, keep runnin’ into those lives with Jesus’ love!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
