I asked God, through tears, how he could allow so much human suffering.
I really felt like he asked me the same thing … how can you allow it … ?”


We have all done it … asked God “why” when the horrors (aka realities) of living in a sin-filled life and world stop us in our tracks, and everything right and good and … fair … disappears like the sun below the horizon.

When I heard and read the words at the top of this page, shared by Kristen Welch, I understood her feeling that God was asking her, how can you allow it … ? Kristen is a blogger (We Are That Family), a wife, a mom, a child of God. She is also the founder of Mercy House Kenya, a home in Kenya, Africa, that exists “to give hope, save babies, and give a second chance” (Maureen Owino).

This is a worthwhile video, not just of a great organization, worthy of prayerful and financial support, but also as a reminder that God calls … no requires something of us, as believer and follower of Him.

Kristen Welch is the founder of Mercy House, Maureen Owino is the executive director … hundreds and thousands of men, women and children have obeyed the call to love their neighbors.

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8
