Today, if all goes well (yes that was intended), we should be finishing up the development of the water well. And while it may feel great to be able to help out this community in a much needed way, I believe it is important to remember that we give out of the abundance with which God has blessed us. However, as we have worked among these people, whom the world would call poor, they have shown us great kindness and generosity. They used what little they have to feed and bless us. I must wonder, as Jesus said of the poor widow, if they are the ones who have given more than any of us on our team.
Pray: It is important for those we serve to not feel like a project. Pray that God will use us to both meet the physical needs of the community and also to help to see the value God places on them as His creations—created in His image and loved enough to send His Son to die for them. Also, please pray for the women of the community who served us meals with such great generosity.
Amado por Dios!
