For the community of Cyanika in northern Rwanda, the lack of latrines and sanitation is a very real problem with a solution in sight. This year, through partnership with Blood:Water Mission, Cyanika celebrated 100% water coverage with rain catchment tanks for 7,000 people. Women and children no longer have to walk 30 kilometers for access to a water source. To continue transforming the health of this region, latrines are the next piece to the puzzle. They will provide the dignity of eliminating waste in private, while keeping the newly constructed water sources free from disease.
This Christmas, help us Deck the Stalls to raise $130,000 for our sanitation efforts in Cyanika, Rwanda. Just $50 means one person will have access to a composting latrine that will provide them health and dignity.
One would expect me to come away from a blogging conference a bit more proficient in WordPress, widgets and well crafted words. I should know all about growing my platform, partnering with sponsors, marketing, branding and publishing. The time and money my sweet husband invested in me to attend Allume surely should produce something of value, some sort of treasure.
Tricia Goyer’s words have stirred me, ”Mine Your Treasure!”
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Mat.6:19-21
What treasure am I mining?
What eternally valuable treasures have I devoted my heart to investing in?
I walked away from the blogging conference with a renewed vision and passion for mining my treasure. My husband and my children are my treasures. They are gifts, straight from the Lord himself. That is where my heart is. Being a faithful steward of my time so I can invest my whole heart into giving them the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Christ is what the Lord has called me to in this season.
Make disciples, I am commanded. What better place to start than right here within the walls of my own home.
Jesus said, “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.”
My heart’s desire is to be faithful in this work he has given me to do so his name will be glorified.
I may be none the wiser when it comes to widgets or web design but when it comes to recognizing kingdom work with eternal dividends, I’m thankful my eyes were opened to the Truth of God’s plan for me. I’m grateful he promises to gently lead those with young.
The prayer of my soul is that when he searches to and fro looking for those whose hearts are devoted to him, that he will find me devoted and that he will strengthen me.
