I Think I’m About to Be Angry.

My friend Shaun has been in the Dominican Republic this week, shooting videos for use with Compassion International.   These videos will be used at concerts and festivals to share what Compassion does for children and their families.  In the process of all this video production, he’s had the opportunity to visit homes and villages of children who are in Compassion projects.  He’s also seen some very disturbing problems, such as this and this.  Like him, I don’t know what to do about it all either, but something MUST be done.  These precious children suffer enough with poverty without having birth defects heaped on them for the sake of cheap U.S. goods.  Please pray for wisdom, discernment, understanding, and perseverance.

I think one of the best things we can do is to “vote with our dollars” be really conscientious about what we buy and where it comes from and the conditions for those who made it.

It often means paying a lot more than we’re used to for things but that’s living justly. 🙂
