$500,000,000 bill

September 23, 2009

Whitney’s new single is ‘Million Dollar Bill‘ but today I held a 500 million dollar bill in my hand.

Dr Leonard Makoni, from Scripture Union in Zimbabwe came to visit our chaplaincy group at College today and happened to have a spare $550mil to give away.

Zimbabwe $500000000

On a more serious level, he shared of his work teaching the Bible in schools and trying to reach children who don’t go to school as well as educating about AIDS and helping street kids. We heard of how life keeps going in Zimbabwe despite the headlines. I learned that the issue isn’t necessarily race-related but people seeking power and property for their own gain. He asked us to pray for those in power to be thoroughly changed by God to honour him and not themselves. Why not do that now?
