Stories From the Field: “Even if you don’t speak the same language, you can still show them God’s love…”

For me, I loved every minute of this mission experience and serving the Lord in this way.  The church services were incredible.  I know a limited amount of Spanish but could still feel the power of God’s Word through the music and teaching.  Part of our team participated in children’s church on Sunday and as I walked back to the hotel, it was so clear that even if you don’t speak the same language and you can’t use words to tell someone about God’s amazing love for them, you can still show them…the love of Christ knows no boundaries!

I felt that every person on our team was divinely appointed to be a part of this team.  Kevin was an awesome team leader, really rallying the troops, ensuring everyone on the team was connecting, and he did an amazing job of continually pointing us to the heart of God through our nightly devotionals and testimonials.

 I loved meeting Maria and hearing her heart to coordinate resources for the churches to have maximum impact within these communities.  Eddie did a great job of  managing the teams to get the job at hand done and he patiently taught me how to be a better painter :).

As a single mom, it was a gift to step away from the demands of day to day life, to seek and to serve God, connect with other Christ followers, on our team and within the churches we served, play with the kids and experience their joy, and to pause to see people the way God sees them.  My prayer is that I will continue to boldly take next steps to follow through on what God impressed on my heart while I was in Honduras and to truly live like I am blessed, because I am!

Grateful beyond measure!
