Last night we were talking as we went to bed. he said, "Dad when I get older I am gonna feed orphans like you. (Note: Not sure I feed orphans but we are going together as a family to work with a ministry this summer that does that in South Africa. You can read our team updates here. ) He said, "I am going to run an orphanage. Dad, there are a lot of kids who die every year because they are hunger and I won't be able to save them all but I can save a few from dying."
WOW! Robin and I are hoping this summer is a life-changing time for our boys. But even before we go, Luke is already thinking of serving those who don't have. When I was six I was saying I wanted to be something like a baseball player, an astronaut or a famous actor. My son is saying he wants to serve the poor and run an orphanage!
(Before you put him on a pedestal, know that he got a time out earlier that evening for acting disrespectful during the blessing over supper meal. Its a nightly occurrence.)
