Ray’s Relections

When did we see Him…?

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40.

Life took a dramatic turn for me after spending a substantial season of my vocational life in education working with children. I had many opportunities to travel with students to different countries, serving the needs of the poor, orphaned, and widowed. But something began to stir deeply within my soul that took time for me to fully understand.

Simply put, the growing realization of my mortality, the beauty and brevity of life, and the desire to make my days count began to overtake other transient ambitions. This time of searching and solitude led to a new declaration, “Lord, I want to give the most of me to the least of these!”

So after two months as CEO of Hagar USA, working on establishing our new headquarters in Charlotte, NC, I am heading to Cambodia and Vietnam to spend time with those on the front lines of The Whole Journey. I look forward to celebrating courageous survivors and the dedicated people who are deeply committed to “doing whatever it takes for as long as it takes to restore a broken life!”

Please join me on the journey.
