Jesus Paid It All

By medsenddev / March 24, 2016 / 1 Comment

As MedSend’s Grant Applicant and Recipient Liaison, I attend the MedSend board meetings, and it is often that by the time I leave, I feel like I have been on a spiritual retreat. Last October’s board meeting was no different. During the meeting this question was posed by one of the board members during his morning devotional: “Who are you Jesus that the slaughter of the innocent was worth it?” That question hit me like a ton of bricks, and is still resonating in my mind.

Unfortunately, their stats are terrible!

One reason is that I know more about issues that affect cross-cultural healthcare workers, Christians and people in need around the world.

I have learned from what they have to say and my own faith has been challenged and deepened.
