Jim Elliot said, “Wherever you are, be all there.” I’m having a hard time being really present anywhere lately if I’m honest. Tim Challies wrote an amazing article in Leadership Journal called “Here and There”, in talking about technology he says he see’s two challenges to presence, to being there in a digital world. ”First, our technologies try to convince me that I can be there even when I remain here, that my presence can be transported through bits, bytes, and pixels, that the essence of who I am can exist on a screen.” Second, the digital world, with all its attractions and distractions, hinders me from being fully here, fully present in life’s best times and places.”

This article challenged me so much about praying for my husband. It's hard to know how sometimes.
I think this will encourage you.
I really hope we can help get all these children sponsored!
