The Harvest Is Plentiful......

But oh, the workers are few!! Live 8 (Make Poverty History Campaign) showed us that poverty in this world is really at a crisis point. Something needs to be done, and we cannot get into a position where we acclimatise to the world's cry for help, where we fail to help because we feel as though our small effort will not really make any impact. It does, every little effort counts! Speaking of which, it's still not too late to support the World Vision's 40 hour famine fund-raising. If you are interested, please email me at

In my last post about the mission field, we discussed that mission field is really on the doorsteps in the west. If you live in Melbourne, you'll find that poverty is evident. From homeless and beggars, through to alcoholics and those with mental illness, there are people in our own backyards that need help and God's love.

When we think of 'missions', we generally think of third world countries and those suffering from extreme poverty. And while third world poverty is a serious issue, the fact of the matter is that there are just as many people outside our front doors that are in need of help.
