If you could run any single company, institution, or organization in the world, which would you choose?
This is a very good question, because the answer can reveal a lot about the person asked. And what it would reveal about me is that I am a very poor business person. I am not good at math in any sense of the word, I am not aggressive in the way a good businessman must be, competition wears me out (even though a little in a board game or ultimate frisbee game never hurt anyone), and even though I have a mind for details and enjoy leadership on a small scale, the risks that one must take and the politics one must engage in would drive me absolutely insane.
However, if you asked me what organization I would love to be a part of, I would have to call it a tie between World Vision, Holt International, and another organization mentioned in a previous post. Yeah that’s right, I’m going to make you read for it. But here’s a hint, it deals with persecution. World Vision is a fantastic aid and disaster relief group that works in 3rd world countries to not only meet physical needs but spiritual needs of people who are suffering and dying. On a side note, they are also given a spotlight in the movie Soul Surfer.
The second Holt International, is an organization that works to match orphans in poorer countries to families in better situations. They are also Christian based. Both organizations allow sponsorship opportunities. World Vision also has a catalogue from which you can purchase supplies like goats, chickens, parkas, school supplies, and even wells for families in need of them. I would encourage you to look into them and if you are able to, to donate or sponsor and enable them to continue in their service to this temporal earth and to the eternal kingdom of the Lord.
