By now, I’m sure anyone who blogs regularly or even reads them regularly has heard about Compassion’s Uganda trip. The one where they are taking all the bloggers to live blog about their experiences with the people of the villages? I have been reading with interest daily the blogs of many of the bloggers that are in Uganda and have been profoundly touched by the conditions that those people live in.

I believe in tithing. It’s scriptural (read Malachi 3:8-12). I believe in giving to the Lord over and above my tithes as well. I even give to Faith Promise. Up until today, I felt pretty good about what my family has committed to do for the work of the Lord. And then I saw this:
Carlos Whittaker, from Ragamuffin Soul is one of several bloggers on the Uganda trip and he took this video of Shannon from Rocks in My Dryer. How can I feel good about the little bit I’ve done when I see something like this?

I can’t be a missionary or be a traveling blogger, but I can do something more. I have to do something more.

    Thanks for sharing this video. I had read the story on Shannon’s blog yesterday. The video again brought tears to my eyes. I cannot think of words…

    I’ve been thinking the same thing. I think as long as I have excess and someone else has need, there is more I can be doing…

    My husband & I watched this today. When we get our little girl’s photo it will go in our living room as a constant reminder to not be wasteful. To be frugal so that we may have more to help others with.

    I think like a person twice removed from this Uganda trip and it’s rocking me hard. I can’t imagine being one of the bloggers there are how hard it’s rocking them.
