What can one white girl do?

That is the question I am asking myself this week!

As we head off to Uganda, I am thinking to myself “what can one white girl do to make a difference?”

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not thinking I am going over there to change the world in 2 short weeks, I have no illusions that I will cure HIV, break the cycle of poverty or even feed 10,000 starving children, but I am thinking to myself “Surely I can make a difference….no matter how small!”

When God placed this crazy idea on my heart, I had no idea the impact it would have on me…...and all this without even leaving New Zealand yet!

As I do research on the net, talk to the organization we are going with, chat with people who have been to Uganda and pray about it, I feel my heart breaking already.  Sometimes the tears start before I can even stop them!

I am praying that God will give me opportunities to really make a difference, even if it is only in 1 persons life, who know’s what impact that person can then have on the world because of little old me or something I said to them! I have learnt to never underestimate the impact we can have in people’s lives, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem at the time.

Who knows, I may even be able to influence a white girl who never thought she could do anything crazy enough like go to Uganda!
