Loving My Neighbor

Loving My Neighbor

Despite a language barrier overcome by the help of Bende, Mukakuimbara was my good friend.
On the last night, I wrote my friend a letter, thanking her for her kindness and love towards me. I read it to her in Hererro and we were able to laugh and hug one last time.

More than Conquerors

More than Conquerors

Although I wish I could just speak Afrikaans and tell them how worthy and beautiful they are to Christ, I have to shift my perspective to focusing on my actions. The team being here gives them a glimpse of a Christ filled life. A book we are reading nails it spot on, “We are not the reconcilers, Jesus is.”

Being a part of this body of Christ is a gift. We are loved by a relational God who uses people as a way to speak to us, influence us, and teach us more about Him. He brings all of His children together in these crazy ways that cause you to look back and know that these connections could only have come from Him.
