Greg Mortenson ambassador of peace and good will

According to The Christian Century, Greg Mortenson has recently published a sequel book, Stones into Schools, continuing to make the case for building schools and providing education particularly for girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan as a way to end conflict and terrorism, rather than military intervention. The editors of The Christian Century conclude in their piece: “Instead of deploying 30,000 more soldiers, the U.S. would be better off deploying 30,000 more Greg Mortensons.” Read more here. An inspiring thought for us followers of Jesus whom we call Prince of Peace, as we prepare to celebrate his birth.
