Goodness through Christ
I woke up to the roosters at 6am this morning I was ready to go since
I went to bed early again last night. It was nice to have a lot of time for
prayer this morning before doing anything else, it really is the perfect way
to start my day. I love quiet mornings to read my bible, pray, and
rest! 1 Corinthians 1:4-9 says, "I always thank my God for you
because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have
been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all
knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among
you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait
for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm
to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord
Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship
with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." God is faithful and I am
continually reminded of that...seriously every day He reveals more of His love! I
was also very encouraged by this verse this morning, because I am
being filled with all good things through Christ Jesus.
Taking a break after the first big hill.
When we allow more of God's love to enter our hearts we are filled up and able to care for and bless others. Cheralyn and
I got to give a tour to the group volunteering this week. We met up with them on the main street to walk up to the school together. Once we got to the property, we took them
around to the buildings, the Tilapia ponds, and showed them the
locations for future projects. I told them about how the school
runs, and learned a lot about other areas of Casa de Fe when Cheralyn was
talking to the group. After the tour was done, we got to go see the
kids! The 'Tias' had planned for a walk so all of us joined them.
Tias are the group of women who work in shifts to take care of the
children at the orphanage 24/7.We walked down the hill, across the
bridge, and up the other hill to get to the park. It took a while
to get there and it was nearing lunch time, so almost as soon as we
got to ther we had to make the trip back. I have enjoyed every second of getting to know these kids and build relationships. They are the Lord's precious children and I am
Abigail and I!
privileged to spend so much time with them! We got all the kids back to the house in time for their lunch and were even a little early so we could play with them outside before saying goodbye! When it was time for their lunch we parted ways and I headed to a local shop to pick up some food on the way to the house. I made lunch before taking a well earned nap, I was exhausted after all of those hills! Cheralyn and I walked around town tonight and it was fun to see so many people out and about. We ended up stopping at "Chifa China" for supper and had some great Chinese food.
