acts of bravery No matter where we sit, the stories of our bravest moments are basically the same. They are stories in which we stepped out into the unknown — not knowing what waited for us or what was going to happen next.

Wess Stafford shares what it takes to take a step of faith and be brave. Tell us your bravest story!

    Very inspirational message. Love the question what’s the bravest thing you’ve done? “step out in the unknown” is in fact the step that creates history. May God help us to write a new chapter of Compassion Int’l, a new chapter in our own life. I enjoy the warm and love in the message. Thank you for these wonderful words of encouragement!

    The bravest thing anyone can ever do is love someone who is not worthy of it. That is what Jesus did for us. That is the example we should follow. Bombs have kill radiuses, churches should have love radiuses—anyone living within twenty miles of a church should know it.

    My first trip to Nicaragua to visit the little girl we had sponsored was one of the bravest things I ever did. It was WAY out of my comfort zone. After that trip, I was hooked. Seven trips later, Nicaragua is like my second home.

    Well, I am not sure it is the bravest thing I have ever done but it is amazing the memories that come back. This is one of the bravest b/c of the situation and I didn’t even realize what was coming to me.

    We were playing football (american) behind our house and it started pouring rain and got muddy we were taking shelter under a tree and somehow I got mad at one of the older boys and called him a big baluga. He said, “say it to my face”, I got in his face and said “you big baluga” Then before I knew it my heels were over my head and I landed in the mud on my back. I got up and that was that, I remember I looked at him and didn’t do anything back I just remember looking at him being bigger. He just kicked the back of my legs with his leg/foot and sent me flying.

    II Corinthians 12:8-10 “when I am weak then I am strong!”

    but regardless if we land on your backs in the mud or win the gold medal “OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!”

    This is a very thought provoking blog and it made me remember the voluntary work trip I made in 2003. I had been looking round UK charities for something worthwhile to do and ended up going to Inda to help local orphans. Doing something brave makes you feel better about yourself without any doubt
