We often get so caught up in our everyday routines, that we become too comfortable in life. And sometimes it is a simple act of kindness that pulls us off our routine to help someone else. You might have to go out of your way, change your schedule, miss an appointment or even give something up — but giving comfort to someone will be a just reward. We’re thankful for our many supporters and partners who go out of their comfort zone everyday to help us comfort the impoverished around the world.
At Convoy of Hope we encounter many storms. We see literal storms that leave families in great need, the seemingly endless storm of poverty and other adversities that come quickly then leave great destruction and debris. Life’s storms are both unwanted and unavoidable yet we’ve found that despite the most adverse conditions, kindness and compassion cannot be blown or washed away. Abraham Lincoln, a president who weathered what was probably our country’s greatest storm put it well when he said, “kindness is the only service that will stand the storm of life and not wash out.”
