Extending the Love and Compassion of God, No Matter What the Cost

This story was written by Lisa Ross, a former student of the Children at Risk School –

During outreach in India, we held a pastor’s conference where we taught about how Jesus values children.  When we had finished the conference, a pastor approached me and he shared about how the teaching had impacted his life. He went on to explain his current situation – there are children in his village who are known as children of prostitutes and from families who live on the streets. Previously, when approached by these children, his church would not work with them because they were concerned about the various problems that may arise as a result of being involved with prostitutes and street children.

It was incredible to see how God changed his mindset and stirred his heart to follow the example of Jesus in giving value to the children around him.

The pastor was challenged during the conference to extend God’s love and compassion to these children no matter what the cost to him or his reputation. It was incredible to see how God changed his mindset and stirred his heart to follow the example of Jesus in giving value to the children around him.
