Hello Supporters and followers! As I type this blog my mind keeps wandering to so many different things that I have done over the past few weeks and things that I have accomplished. I think the thoughts keep stirring in my mind because I am so happy to be able to continue to do God's work even with little mobility, pain and discomfort. I strive for what Jesus commands us to do and that's GO!
Our family had the opportunity to serve and accommodate for three children over Spring Break. They stayed with us for five days and during those five days we were able to teach the children how to serve Gods people. Our family served them and met every need. We took them horseback riding, and to Round Rock to serve at Mission U-Too. We ate frozen yogurt together and made lots of great memories. We even baked cookies and hunted for chicken and duck eggs.
The reason for this blog is not to boast about what I have done or what my family has done, but its to share with you, that serving can be done in any type of way. We had the opportunity to show Christ's love with children in our home. We took them to show them how to love our community and to be a part of Gods purpose; His people. Their eyes were opened to things they haven't seen before. Just like our hearts when we accept Jesus. We feel something we've never felt before. The Holy Spirit is powerful. I went from a life that made no sense and relationship struggles that should not have been. I look back on my old life and now my new life and I'm excited to see my family being disciples and training up our children to be on mission. Just like what we were doing with our extra guests.
Friends I encourage you to serve Gods people and those who are unchurched. If you don't, then how can we as Christians say we did the best we could to reach others? It starts by relationships, love, serving, listening, prayer and trust and then we can teach them the gospel and train them up to be on mission. My prayer is for those youngsters we had over, will take what they had learned and one day GO and not allow the enemy to stray them from Jesus' last words.
Christian's be on mission and serve. Don't just serve inside the church. Serve outside the building and be the church. Don't let excuses come between you and God. He doesn't give us any excuses.
