The following blog post was written by Center intern, student staff member, and graduate assistant Chelsea Mack:
This past Monday evening, I was introduced to the organization, Justice Rising, at an event on campus. I learned about this event through the Center for Global Justice’s postings in the office. Justice Rising was founded by Cassandra Lee who strongly felt that God called her to work in war-affected communities. The organization goes into these physically, emotionally, and spiritually-destroyed places to love on the people. Their love is expressed primarily through building schools that provide a holistic support system for children to break free from the cycles of violence that plague their communities. During their experiences thus far, the team continues to witness the awesome power of God move mightily and win broken and tormented souls back to Him.
At the conclusion of the event, I was able to meet some of the leadership team and discuss the current status of legal work and opportunities with Justice Rising. Only God knows if this may open up doors in the future for the Center which could turn into a fantastic partnership. The one thing that I do know and was reminded of during the presentation is that God can breathe upon the smallest efforts and labors of love for His Kingdom and allow them to become some of the greatest accomplishments known to man. Groups such as the Center for Global Justice and Justice Rising are just two examples.
