In Music Business class, we were given the assignment to create a Business Plan. Immediately, I started to roll my eyes. I mean, I don't have a business model. Even if someday I wanted to start a business, I have no clue what I would do. I then sat and contemplated. I said to myself, "What do you love?" And I immediately said music and children. I love music, and the children of this world are so precious, special, and God calls us to look out for them especially. The logical conclusion, would be to teach. Teaching includes music, and children. But…. I don't want to teach. I have the utmost respect for teachers, and feel like it is such a rewarding profession for both ends, but I don't want to teach, nor do I see myself doing it. Through reading scripture, praying, and seeing how orphans are living around this world, God really opened my eyes to a brand new idea.
What if music what brought to orphanages?
The problem is that there are so many orphans who are lost in this world today. These are children that may not have families, or any guaranteed form of love. Today, people do travel to orphanages and evangelize, do community work, build schools, and many other beneficial activities. Though those are great, even more can be done . . .
