Living Humbly for a Cause

ZOE Missionaries Help Victims of Child Trafficking

“The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”    Mr. Antolini, Catcher in the Rye

This quotation makes me think of ZOE’s many amazing missionaries. Our missionaries are men and women with professional experience in law enforcement, banking, business, rocket science, teaching, social work, and administration in a state government department. These are people who were effective in their careers. They experienced success and carried influence.

In the midst of their success, they chose to change their professional trajectories. They chose to live humbly in the service of children unseen or discarded by others.

These gifted men and women have chosen to live humbly. As a result, victims of child trafficking are experiencing safety, love, family, education, and vocational training. They are experiencing God’s love. The impact of these humble lives is truly magnificent.

I am deeply grateful for the missionaries at ZOE. I also suspect that, in truth, they were never more successful than they are today.
