I’ve been here a few weeks, and each day brings a new picture of Jesus’ compassion I never knew existed. In big ways and small, this place is changing lives, and what an honor it’s been to spend time here!
Words do no justice to the amazing, awe-inspiring, humbling place that is Sewa Ashram – so maybe a few videos will!
Below, you’ll see a video I made that provides a detailed tour of the facilities. But rest assured, there’s plenty to see and hear. Just ignore my bad jokes.
- Think about what service of the sick entails. In some ways, we may glamorize and idealize it. In reality, however, it’s messy and often accompanied by foul sights, smells and attitudes. The lepers and the sick Jesus healed certainly didn’t look like movie stars or smell like roses.
- Are you willing to serve the sick? If so, plenty of volunteer opportunities surround you, whether it’s visiting nursing homes, hospitals or special needs facilities. If not, then support those who do, including the folks at Sewa Ashram.
- Pray for those who serve at the Ashram. It takes courage, dedication, love and humility. Pray for the staff members, as well as the patients, and for God’s ongoing guidance as the facility continues to evolve.
