We had a very productive day getting everything set up and ready for Med-Fest. There is still a lot to be done but it is great to see things coming together. There is a lot of preparation that goes into big events such as this one and it can be very exhausting, but when we get to that moment when we are preaching the Good News and seeing souls won for the Lord, it all becomes worth it.
I was very proud of our girls today. Even though Emma is just 4 and Paige 2 they showed that anyone, at any age, can serve the Lord.
I think that a lot of people are scared to go into the mission field. They are scared they aren’t educated enough, aren’t trained enough, are too old or too young, or just don’t know what to say or do. Something I learned at a fairly young age myself, though, is that God can use anyone. Even a toddler. As long as you have a heart for the Lord and want Him to work through you, He will do just that…if you give Him the chance.
I love being in Nicaragua. It is such a beautiful country and the people are so kind. I love telling people about Jesus and even more I love seeing the power of God’s word move in people’s hearts and give them a new life. We are constantly “making new friends” as Emma puts it, and even if I don’t have a translator around I try to use my best Spanish to get to know the people and hopefully tell them about the Saviour who died just for them.
I don’t know what we have planned for tomorrow but I know that it will begin with giving God all the honor and glory, because only He can put something like this together.
I praise God for allowing our family to serve Him.
I praise Him for using us in spite of our many flaws and weaknesses.
I praise Him for Jesus.
