we invest that much money into a single ministry? Wouldn’t we be better served by reaching more areas? Are the dollars we are giving helping people come to Christ? The person asking was not being critical. They were not opposed to what we were doing. They simply wanted to know. How much of a difference were we making? As I thought about their question, a very different question began to burn in my spirit. The response to what they were asking seemed to hang on the answer. In a sense, every question about why we were doing missions this way rested on this one simply question. Can one girl change the world? If the answer was yes, then anything we did to set a single girl on a path which would be world shaping would be worth every dollar we sent and more. If the answer was yes, then no amount would be too large, because the impact would be greater than could be measured in dollars. If the answer was yes, then nothing would ever draw us away from this and we could move forward with laser like focus. The answer was so simple it is easily missed. One girl can change the world, because one girl has changed the world. At the risk of deifying her, Mary (the mother of Jesus) changed the world. God could have sent Jesus to earth in anyway He chose. Yet He sought out a willing girl. A young lady, perhaps as young as twelve or thirteen. The scriptures tell us that when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman (Galatian 4:4). In other words, when the angel Gabriel stood before Mary and explained God’s plans, when he had answered all her questions, when there was nothing left to say, there was a moment of silence. In that moment, all of heaven stood breathless. Every angel peered over the edge of heaven, eyes fixed on the speck of earth called Nazareth. Then Mary spoke, “I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38) and all of heaven rejoiced. In that moment, one girl changed the world. Messiah, Emmanuel, God with us was conceived. God took on flesh, and the rest is history. Yes, one girl can change the world! Through Global Servants we are working to not only help change the destinies of countless lives, we are helping to create world changers. Girls who will say as Mary, “I am the servant of the Lord.” And all of heaven and earth will rejoice!
