This past Saturday morning, Dr. Scott Todd (Sr. VP of Compassion International) and I sat at my kitchen table and reminisced about his visit six years before. The weekend of his 2007 visit we had team taught during RiverTree’s weekend gatherings. To dramatically illustrate the number of children that die every 24 hours as a result of poverty or poverty-related preventable diseases we poured 30,000 BBs from multiple pitchers into a galvanized metal tub. With a microphone placed beneath the tub, the never-ending din of the BBs was deafening.
This past weekend, Scott once again taught at RiverTree. As we closed the teaching time together we once again approached the galvanized metal tub with the microphone placed beneath.
