Take Action

...it means just starting somewhere...

1. Pray

For wisdom. For God's leading. For God's love and care to be present in the lives of vulnerable children.

1. Reflect

How has God made you? What gifts and skills do you have? Who is already doing work in your area?

1. Do

Something just start somewhere. Grab a friend and commit.
