Stepping Beyond Security Sep 25, 2000
September 24, 2000
In Henri Nouwen's journal entries, he captures each moment and thought of his struggle to find God's calling during his journey through Peru and Bolivia. Not only does he describe his own feelings, but also the joys and struggles of the people he came in contact with. His journal depicts the true venture of stepping into mission work or at least stepping outside of our everyday life in search of our place in this world. He gives encouragement to those who are searching and have felt a calling to go out and help others. He opened my eyes to show me that it is not the number of people you help but it is the one heart that you touch that counts.
