A WORD FROM DR. HAMBY, PRESIDENT

On the way to their favorite church camp, a group of teens and adult leaders were rudely interrupted by a dirty and smelly homeless man who approached their bus at a gas station. He shared a sad, desperate story about his hunger and cold, begging for help. When the youth pastor suggested taking the man with them, the entire group thought he’d lost his mind. That weekend the mood was tense, if not outright hostile. The girls’ cabin held a prayer service for their safety. The boys barely slept, always watching the homeless man with suspicion and distaste. Their only contributions to his welfare were an unwanted banana and a tract, which no one o ered to explain. On the final day of the retreat, the youth pastor revealed the poor man’s true identity – a friend who was simply pretending in order to see how the group would react. After a stunned silence, everyone began talking at once, trying to apologize and explain how they had intended to be more helpful and caring. But they had missed the point completely. How often do we do the same when faced with someone we don’t like or feel uncomfortable around? Matthew 25 recounts an important parable where Christ rewards those who are willing to care for the hungry, strangers, the sick, and those in prison. He says: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael believed the kindness of God should flow from God’s people to those around them. She lived much of her life in India, rescuing children from slavery in the temples. She had health problems that caused her whole body to ache, and sometimes she would spend days unable to get out of bed due to the pain. But she knew God had called her to help the children who had never known kindness, and through her sacrifice many children experienced the kindness of God.
