Compassion Journal #1
This family is a perfect illustration of what Building a Difference is encouraging people to do with their lives. They’re taking risks and stepping out beyond their own borders.
Preparing for the Journey…
The Compassion Journals officially begin with Melisa Page-Bailie sharing some of her heart for what she hopes her children will experience, and what they will walk away with when the trip is complete.
Melisa and her children, Tim, Laci, Gabe and Jordan, take out the cameras and mount up for an adventure that awaits.
“I want the children to journal everyday,” explains Melisa Page-Bailie. “I wasn’t then to take pictures and document things that interests them so that they can look back in the future and see how God used this journey to change their lives. I want them to not forget the most important parts of this joinery and that’s the people they meet while they’re serving and the opportunities that they’ve had.”
Laci Page will be one of the children assuming the role of a media missionary. “I think it’s important for all of us to document our experiences,” she says, “because it gives our friends and family an opportunity to go online and see photos and videos and be a part even though they are not with us. And hopefully it can encourage and inspire other people to get in involved with missions work themselves.”
