Breaking down barriers.
That is what is happening in Chiluvuru, India inside and outside the walls of the Menno Clinic. There, they provide medical, vision, and dental care to the surrounding community with a very specific goal in mind: to meet people of all faiths and all castes with the love of Jesus.
Brenda serves on the Board of Directors for the Menno Clinic India, and is currently in India visiting their facility. Her experiences there have led her to glean some very important life lessons that she wants to share in this episode of the Life Beyond the Picket Fence podcast.
When exposed to other cultures and/or people who believe differently or look different than we do, we begin to humbly understand a few things. We learn that we are all just people, created in the image of God, who crave to be seen, known, and accepted. The barriers that keep people apart vary from social, economical, racial, religious, and beliefs. As Christians, we are called to be a barrier breakers. To engage with a hurting and hostile world in a real and tangible way regardless of their beliefs or background.
Are we doing that?!
Be challenged, in this episode, to be a barrier breaker despite any fear, comfort loss, or hesitancy you may encounter.
