A New Endeavor

As I was researching my latest novel, (tentatively titled) Triple Time, I ran across a book our pastor was reading that God really used to help shape some things for me.

First, it showed me how blessed we are here in America. We will one day have to give an accounting before the Almighty for the things we complain about that aren't earth-shattering, life-changing, or eternity-influencing. We truly have little about which to grip

Second, I needed to do something. As I wrote page after page of my novel (I'm now into Book 3 of the Blake Meyer series), and delved into the world of human trafficking, God truly challenged me.

So, I did.

It seems small. On the scale of eternity, my little pittance doesn't seem like it will tip the scales at all in favor of the lost and forgotten.

Yet, I also know that when I take off my human lenses and put on the bifocals of God, then I start to see as He sees.

That's why I aligned myself with Gospel for Asia. That's K. P. Yohannan's organization, which endeavors to bring the gospel to those at the bottom of a system (the caste system) I do not understand.

If you are unfamiliar with this organization, would you take a moment and check out their website @ Gospel for Asia?

I'll be blogging for them periodically in a effort to get the word out about the Dalits and their plight, many of which are used in illegal activities or are sold into slavery. If you wish to read about them, check out K. P. Yohannan's book, No Longer a Slumdog. You can purchase it off Amazon for get a free copy HERE.

Thank you for stopping by.
