The Mega Issue: Part 5
We have talked about two chain reactions, two cycles.

The first
is how the rescue of orphaned and abandoned children (the mega-issue) affects so many other problems and concerns – poverty, HIV/AIDS, prostitution, child exploitation and other interrelated matters. To save children is to proactively attack and diminish all these societal plagues and afflictions.

As children are liberated from the vicious cycle, parts of the cycle unravel, producing a geometric impact that reaches through generations. It’s not just about the current statistical decline of these troubles; it’s about the rescued children’s children, grand-children, great-grand children and beyond, who are now freed from the cause and effect spiral of despair. The changes project forward exponentially…because of children’s removal from the cycle.

The second
regards an expanding numerical impact also. As the Church is the vehicle and purpose of rescue, children learn about their value in God’s eyes. They learn what the Bible has to say about teaching others, helping others, changing others.

The children are removed from the problem but also become part of the solution as they teach against abuse, addiction and exploitation. They become an army of change agents for their communities, nation and world. The changes project forward exponentially…because of more workers attacking the cycle.

We have also talked about the spiritual element inherent in the church being the means of rescue and how this also has additional and multiplicative ramifications for eternity. People are attracted to the church because of the church’s love for the children.

And the children above not only go into the world teaching about the issues of the temporal world, but they go teaching about the gift of eternity. These children become an army in another sense – an army of missionaries, spreading the greater truth of love and transformation. The changes project forward eternally…because of the spread of the message of new life.

It is this last thought that we’d like to now briefly expand upon here.
