Pure Joy

I’m so full of joy as I spend my days here in Kerala, India. The hospitality shown from Babu and his family is amazing. I’m convicted of my lack of it…

The passion shown in worship shows their love for Jesus! Their songs although not understandable to us, are full of passionate worship to our Lord and Savior. When I look into their eyes I see a hunger to communicate and express their love for the Lord and us as a mission team.

As for the mission team, you see their different personalities showing and how they work together to build each other up. But some of the struggles are anxiety with speaking, some minor health issues, stomach problems, swollen ankles, and headaches.

With all this being said I’m reminded of what Paul says in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For this light momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” These experiences should be viewed through this scripture every time we experience them.

So we rejoice in all things thankful of God’s grace knowing all glory is to him!
