Red Bus Project Sweeps Through MTSU
Hey guys! The Red Bus Project came to MTSU's campus this week. And on a blistering day, I've never been surrounded by more fun, loving people making a difference in orphan care around the world. This project is pretty awesome and the students of MTSU were even more so. Students are the real reason this project is able to be what it is. Many thought it was "so cool" that this Double Decker bus was a rolling thrift store and most agreed with me: This is a pretty sweet set up we have going on.
Working a table that got to speak with a lot of students, teachers, and even youth pastors from different churches was a great way to get people pumped with going inside the bus and shop to make a difference whether they listened to the mission of the Red Bus Project or not. A few stopped by a second time around bringing friends and gushing about things they've gotten. I spoke with a lady who had just put their name on a list for adopting a special needs boy or girl from China. The coolest part about talking to her was that I got to share a little about my adoption experience. I have three sisters from China. The newest addition actually has special needs, and talking to this woman about it was great. She and her husband have been praying, and she's excited about the process. This will be their first child.
Spending the day here working with the Red Bus Project has broadened my mind to the fact that we as college students can make a difference in the care of orphans around the world, and we can find forever families for these children. After all, we are orphans adopted into God's family.
