This is the hope of the world: Jesus, not America, not prosperity, but Jesus, and His strength in us, His life in us, His love in us.
To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world’s resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.
-President Barack Obama, Inaugural Address
[quote from The One Blog]
I was blown away by his passion for world poverty and helping those around the world. I don’t believe I have ever heard a president speak in this way, and it is quite amazing.

So yesterday evening, I went over to my friend John Poole’s place. Earlier that day we had talked about creating a video for him and his trip to Australia coming up (Sunday)… So on the way to his house, I got some footage of his everyday life: him smiling, laughing… when we got to his house, I interviewed him about how his relationship with God is now and where it is going, and where are you going anyways? What are you doing there?… That sort of stuff…
I am uber excited about it, and I can’t wait to show you guys! It should be ready by tomorrow sometime… trying to get it out before he leaves on Sunday or Monday…
So keep your eye out for my first interview with John Poole about his upcoming trip to Australia, and the world!
