I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Mission team members were standing on this verse today as we were on the Mission field for the last time for this visit. Some were physically tired but still ready and willing to grow his kingdom and give glory to God. Team members and listeners were ushered into the presence of God through praise and individual testimonies given on the radio.
The village of Pascuala was the first stop where team members engaged the residents in games, hat making, soccer, and various other activities. Surprisingly, many of the Nica children spoke some English. It never ceases to amaze us when the people are so thankful for all God’s blessings; even items that North Americans take for granted. Today grownups and children were clamoring for the boxes that held the food packets. Team members shared God’s love through prayer, testimonies, and sharing the gospel.
After lunch the truck was packed with games, food, caramelo, and an abundance of love for the people of Jinocaujo. We discovered fewer people at the village than expected due to the high water level of the river. The team loved on the ones present and left enough love behind to be shared with those not present.
The team is grateful and thankful for a week of God’s blessings, and consider it an honor to have the opportunity to walk out the Great Commission.
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
