A Voice for the Voiceless

Last night I shared my heart stirrings for children. The children living in poverty, the homeless children, the orphaned children......the children who are all in the need of love, in need of a human connection, in need of an advocate whose voice will be heart breaks for these.

One woman I omitted last night from my list of inspiring women was Michele-Lyn, author of the blog A Life Surrendered. In October 2012 she wrote this post regarding her trip with World Hope to Guatemala. Hers words had me weeping. The photo of her holding a baby during her Operation Baby Rescue? Sobbing. Shoulders shaking, chest gripping, gasping for air sobs. As I cried I thought, "This. I want to be a part of this."

And through my tears I clicked over to Operation Baby Rescue and watched this video:

More body shaking sobs followed by the feeling of helplessness. How could this homeschooling, daycare mama with limited financial resources help? Michele-Lyn gave me the answer when she cried out for other bloggers to join in blogging for World Help.

Maybe someday God will provide the way for me to adopt a child that needs a mama or to travel to a poverty stricken country to rescue and care for sick children. Until then I do have a voice. I can use my voice to help those who are voiceless. I can use my voice to educate and to inspire.

How 'bout it? Would you like to spread the word about the work of World Help? Can you be a voice for the voiceless? I invite you to use your voice to change the world!
