U of Memphis Impacts Orphans with Red Bus Project
The Red Bus Project has began a movement across the nation. It is instilling both proactive awareness and responsibility among college students who are searching for ways to practically live out what God has commanded us to do in His Word.
When the Red Bus pulled up in front of the BCM this afternoon, after a morning full of rain and mechanical problems, there was an immediate attraction from onlookers as they walked from class to class. What the Red Bus represents is not only the image of how college students can make a difference in a one-day fundraiser event but, more importantly how college students can make a difference everyday.
God first stirred a passion in my heart for orphans two summers ago when He allowed for me to serve Him in an orphanage in Jinja, Uganda. It was there that He taught me the true meaning of helping orphans, of caring for widows. He showed me the need for believers to not only serve alongside other brothers and sisters across the world, but to also serve them locally as well. The Lord had to take me across the world to teach me this lesson, and I am telling you now that we need to realize this local call today. God has placed us each in a particular place for a specific purpose, now all we need to do is seek His face as to what He wants us to do where He has placed us.
