Projecting power

My contribution to the Honduran windmill project is on the way.

This is a side of my life I usually keep off the internet. The Bible is pretty clear about not displaying our charitable actions as we run the risk of doing charity for the wrong reasons.

I decided to make an exception in this case. I see value in documenting that those of us who support legal immigration are not "haters". There is also value in documenting that we put our money where our mouth is.

I am not stealing from the "rich" by demanding that taxpayers foot the bill for my beliefs. Nor am I stealing from my children and grandchildren by demanding that the deficit be increased to scratch-my-itch.

My money from my pocket used to purchase tools and consumables with the intent of empowering, literally, rural people in BF Honduras.

-Compared to-

University students being given academic credit to protest for open borders. Impeding traffic while walking around with $6 cups of coffee made with 0% Honduran coffee beans.

Yeah, they are doing the average Honduran a LOT of good.

  1. The Bible is clear about "not letting your right know what your left is doing", but I've always thought that is more related to drawing attention to yourself or trying to make yourself more important as opposed to bringing awareness to a cause.

    We support several church missionaries, here and abroad. Hopefully those will lead to good things in the future.
