when in doubt…write

It’s 0410 here in rainy Lynchburg, Virginia. I’ve been up for about 45 minutes and don’t think getting back to sleep is a real option.

I have prayed. I have done some Scripture study. I have been able to also knock out some of my work scheduled for later today.

That might allow for a short nap later this afternoon. But now I am caught in between too late to go back to bed and too early to get seriously busy.

So, when in doubt, blog.

In fact, it’s a good opportunity to blog about my blog. I began  thefaceofhunger at some point in the distant past with the hope I might encourage readers to become more engaged with the plight of the world’s poor and hungry. Now, over 950 blog posts later, I am rapidly coming closer to the end of this journey.

It’s been a privilege to talk about the work of Stop Hunger Now and the unbelievable impact our efforts have had in helping end hunger in our lifetime. I’ve been honored to have the opportunity to share my travel stories and to lift up those most in need.

But soon I will be passing off thefaceofhunger to other capable hearts and hands. When that hand off happens I will become an avid reader of the blog rather than its writer. My prayer is that thefaceofhunger continues to inspire and motivate all of us to do everything possible until hunger is just a memory. Working together we can end hunger in our lifetime.
