Throw Away Society

El Salvador, a throw away society, where it is an honor for a child to die but a dishonor for a child to be adopted. A society where women and children are abused and looked upon as worthless. This past Friday night the team that was here had their farewell service. One man got up to say something that brought tears to my eyes. He said Ecclesiastes 3:8 says "A time to love and a time to hate..." but hate what? He said, "You know what I hate? I hate the term throw away kids. Because MY GOD DOES NOT MAKE THROW AWAY KIDS." There is not one life that God created that is a waste. As much as we might not agree with how someone lives or what someone does....no one is a waste. Each person was lovingly created by God and we are supposed to love them.
