In Plains, Mt., members of this small, rural town of 1,000 are putting their hands to work to meet the needs of their community. One way is by falling, splitting and delivering free firewood to those who need it to survive the tough, long winters of Montana. They’re using local resources to provide local solutions. And helping resource and train them along the way has been members of our Rural Compassion team. Pretty cool stuff.

Pastor Jim Sinclair of Church on the Move is at the helm of this effort and I was encouraged by his quote from a recent interview — “You can only be a sheep for a little while. Then you have to become a ranch hand.”

What steps can you take TODAY to stop being a sheep and become a ranch hand? Share your ideas on Facebook or Twitter and mention @convoyofhope.

“My heart is arrested for #hope.”

Brian Nhira, a recent graduate of Oral Roberts University brought hope & inspiration to our team today. And thanks to our incredible leadership, we also scored Brian’s EP, titled HOPE.

Brian just returned from Zimbabwe where he toured for a month inspiring children and locals to never stop dreaming, even when hope is gone.

He’s currently recording his debut album, HOPE’S STAND and is looking for contributors to make it happen. Visit Brian Nhira’s site to listen in and learn more.
