Tomorrow we head out for our 3rd mission trip to Cuba. We’ll be working with about 15 churches throughout the country, some that we’ve worked with before but most of them newly formed house churches. We love this time together with the people as they bless us and continue to show us in what it means to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. In the midst of so many challenges to their everyday living they never waver, their faith grows stronger and they continue to make disciples, who make disciples, who make disciples!
God Is Amazing!
We’re spending a few days at one of our very special happy places as we celebrate moving forward into a new adventure! Eleven years ago God placed on our hearts the opportunity to plant seeds in the international mission field and then several years ago the chance to begin Waterside Missional Community. We are now seeing those seeds really starting to grow! We are excited to see what God has in store for us as we move forward into focusing on this adventure that God has placed on our hearts. We are blessed by all that God has already poured upon us and trust that His blessings will continue! I love it when God calls you to something and you really have no clue what is going to happen! Life is an adventure and God is so good!
Kathy Lee Gifford’s touching tribute to her husband.
Tonight we’re watching “The Passion Of The Christ”. There are parts of this movie that I want to turn away, close my eyes and not watch. But, I force myself to keep my eyes on what is happening. I want to be reminded of the significance of this day.
Thank You Jesus for enduring the pain of beatings, carrying the cross and ultimately your death.
I see the beauty of God’s creation surrounded and protected by thorns preventing it from destruction or harm.
Just as this flower is protected are we not as well?
For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up, And instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up, And it will be a memorial to the LORD, For an everlasting sign which will not be cut off. Isaiah 55:12-13
