I had to share this picture with you before getting into the heart of this post. I snapped this picture over the weekend as Noonie and I stood across the way from Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. It should be called God's Garden. God's majesty is what comes to mind for me.
What does is mean to help Mary? This week, that's what I'm up to with the staff at Arizona Shine.
In the tiny country of Lesotho, 70 percent of residents are unemployed and 40 percent are suffering from HIV/AIDS. This epidemic affects all aspects of society. It leaves orphans reliant on the care of family members or the community. Life expectancy is just 36 years.
Through this SonSet Radio project, Arizona Shine hopes to send 100 radios to Harvest FM, so Mary and her staff can hand them to people in remote areas. As a result, they will hear about the hope and love of Jesus Christ. Past shipments of SonSets have done miracles in Mary's ministry:
A group of prostitutes, who thought they were totally rejected by society, were "thrilled and overjoyed" to receive the fixed tuned solar powered radios. One of the programs, which was being broadcast at the time, gave listeners an opportunity to phone in and pray on the radio for the "street ladies."
Four of these girls were convicted and made commitments to the Lord. When a local factory heard of this, they contacted Harvest FM and said that they wanted to offer these four girls jobs. As a direct result of this exercise, the government has now offered to establish a "job creation" project, as they work alongside Harvest Fm, to uplift these girls.
Please pray for the 100 radios to have an incredible impact and bring people into the Kingdom of God.
