Last week, I had the privilege to accompany our Youth group on a Mission Trip to Pine Bluff, Arkansas to work with inner city kids.

We worked in a rough apartment complex with a notorious crime rate.

We were given a list of do’s and don’ts before we left…mostly don’ts.

And then we met the people.

And fell in love.

They just needed people to look beyond the crime statistics, the poverty, and the ugliness.

They needed people to see THEM.

Play with them.

Talk with them.

And love them.

We loved the mess out of these people.

They are wonderful kids.

Beautiful families.

And every town has the same type of area.

We all need to simply LOVE more.

Our world would change if we did.

And that would make the BIGGEST SPLASH of all!
