Armed with love and a flower

Often decisions made in fear result in no decision at all. When we took a team of people to share true love in the red light district of Tijuana fear was not something we came under, as we walked down the streets it was nowhere to be found.

What filled the streets was the Sprit of God, manifested in and around his creation.  The young ladies who stood in plastic high heels along the sides of buildings, were seen for more than what the world had made them to be. As we handed them flowers and invited them in they smiled, cried, hugged, hoped, laughed and felt the love of a God, who gives the cup of joy amidst the sorrow. 

He really cares about people who are hurting. He really does draw near to the broken. His goodness cannot be exaggerated. His love can be shared.
