Sustainable?

Sustainability. I have recently been pondering this buzz word. “Is it sustainable?” usually means – can a project become self-funding. My experiences with sustainable projects like that, however, have been bad. We know of children’s homes that use farming or even performances to support the homes. In both situations the children suffer. The focus of any project shouldn’t be on the funding rather on sustaining the heart values of the project through multiplication. If we would borrow a page from one great mentor, we would invest intensely in a few people. That is what we are attempting  to do with our family in Kenya. It worked for Jesus, and with the fruit we are seeing in these kids – we are sold on the idea. Our 12 children will reproduce all of the investment we have deposited in them. 12X12X12 … it becomes viral. That is true sustainability.
