Hello, my name is Regina. During my trip to Asia, I was challenged and inspired by a single mother I met on the way to a Bridge of Hope center. Her name is Kavita.

Regina: How could I not be impacted and encouraged by Kavita's story?
I was impacted in so many ways by hearing Kavita's story. I complain daily about all the things I need to do, yet when I look at her daily routine, mine doesn't even compare!
Kavita is a human being just like the rest of us. She does have struggles each day, but she chooses to press onward toward the goal of pleasing Jesus Christ. She is a wonderful example of the Lord to me and those around her. I promised Kavita I would share her testimony with all the sisters I work with in hopes that they, too, will be encouraged and challenged to live for Christ.
Christ did not have to go to the cross and die for us, but He chose to. He knew what going to the cross was going to entail—suffering, being mocked, whipped, and beaten—yet He thought it all worthwhile so His children could spend eternity with Him. Kavita has the same mindset; she chooses to sacrifice and suffer to see just one child come to Christ, which makes it all worth it.
My brothers and sisters, the Christian walk is never supposed to be easy. Christ has called us to suffer for Him—and what a privilege it should be after what He did for us! We are called to proclaim His glory throughout the entire world. I challenge you to remember what He has called you to do and do it. Besides, this life is so short compared to eternity and the glory that is to be revealed!
