“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45 

Blessings from Casa De Shelly on a verrrrrry rainy Sat. Night.  Storms started about 4 PM this afternoon and rained verrrrrry hard until about 6:30 PM.  It’s just that time of the year and it doesn’t seem to bother anyone except maybe the North Americans and they aren’t bothered to much.
In looking at this passage this morning I couldn’t help but pray for the 100+ missionaries that will be coming to Nicaragua to SERVE over the next couple of months.  Lots of things planned but nothing more important than just being obedient to the Holy Spirit and that will lead down the path of service.  Pam and I are praying that we will be the instrument in God’s hand, in God’s time to teach this very simple principle to the local church.  A large portion on our leadership training next  week will be on servant hood and teaching the church leaders HOW to walk in the scriptures just as we teach our visiting missionaries.
Sharing some pictures of the new digs Angel and I built for our ever increasing chicken family.  Just getting started brought back lots of bad memories.  Years ago when I wanted to do something around the house there were no tools to work with.  My 2 son’s seemed to be able to misplace tools quicker  than I could replace them.  Started out looking for our skill saw, nobody at Casa De Shelly knew anything about it.  All the stores were closed today because one of the national politicians was in town.  Me with all my patience just got in the truck and took my lovely wife on a quick trip to Chinendaga.  At this point it had become a mission even if I had to drive all the way back to Managua.  God spared us that journey and we got what we needed and returned to begin construction.  One thing I always try to teach our teams is that you have to be flexible on the mission field.  Today I got to practice a lot of what I preach.  IHL, Donald and Pammie
