So I’m totally honored to be leading our first ever team trip for Saving Moses here in Cambodia! We have about 15people here doing work with our nightcare efforts. Nightcare is our program with Saving Moses where we take care of the babies & toddlers of prostitutes while they work.
If this idea is challenging to you, please consider a few things:
*no women ever thinks that being a prostitute is her dream job, not in a million years
*babies are the natural result of this industry – each baby is a gift from God because life is precious, full stop
*there are well over a dozen organizations devoted to helping these women to change their profession, which is no easy task
*there is not a single organization here solely devoted to looking after these babies / toddlers while their moms work
*without nightcare, these babies are frequently with their moms as they work – hence the importance & power of our nightcare work
Please join me, at minimum, to pray that our nightcare expresses the genuine love of God to each baby we care for every night 🙂

Supernatural

There’s nothing supernatural about doing things in which you already have natural talent & ability. For example, to some people, my ability to absorb or pick up a language may seem supernatural but to me, it’s very natural because God has given me some talent in this area & it comes to me relatively easily.
The flip side of this is that those things at which I’m not as gifted nor talented are a struggle for me. For example, if you talk with me about business stuff (strategic planning, organizational structure, operational systems, etc), I’ll look at you like a deer in headlights. I know full well that when I “get” to put on the business thinking hat, I’m entering a supernatural zone, requiring God’s steady hand, help, wisdom & engagement. Just because we aren’t naturally gifted at something doesn’t mean that God doesn’t want us to be involved in such areas. Always remember that our “supernatural” is God’s natural 🙂
