With all the problems in the world, it's good to know there are still Christians showing Jesus' love with simple acts of kindness. In my podcast today, I interview Convoy of Hope president and CEO Hal Donaldson. He shares how his organization has stepped up during the pandemic to distribute more than 10 million meals to families who lost access to food and school lunch programs.
I've known Hal since the early 1980s, since he was a beginning journalist and I was working to get Charisma off the ground. It's been great to see him develop as a leader over the years. The pivotal moment of his life came when he was given the opportunity to interview Mother Teresa in India, and she asked him what he was doing to help the poor. Her question shook him to the core, and he rose to the challenge it posed.
Hal experienced poverty firsthand as a teen after his father was killed in a car accident and there was no insurance to take care of the family. He also knows how he was affected by the kindness of a woman in the church who bought him a nice pair of tennis shoes.
It's an amazing story, and Hal explains it much better than I can. Listen to his testimony on today's episode, and ask yourself what you are doing to make a difference in someone else's life. One immediate way is to partner with Convoy of Hope, which you can do at the organization's website.
I've supported Convoy of Hope personally as well as through our nonprofit partner, Christian Life Missions. We've also partnered with one of their projects in nearby Sanford, Florida, which brought unity in our community. That helped later, when Trayvon Martin was killed and the community and nation were in turmoil.
I hope thousands of readers and listeners will help support the mission of Convoy of Hope. Together we can accomplish more than we can alone.
