Yesterday our team had a much needed day of R&R with our ministry partners at the beach. We did our re-entry talk on the bus ride to the beach, where we processed the amazing things that God has done in our midst. We shared scriptures on God's heart for the fatherless, the poor and the heartbroken. His Word has come to life this week as we've watched Him pour out His love in and through our team.
The team had the opportunity to pray over our missionaries throughout the day. We also had a heart warming time of affirmation together, where many tears were shed. I am incredibly thankful to the Lord for three amazing weeks in El Salvador this summer. He has moved powerfully, bringing life, hope and encouragement to the wonderful people of El Salvador. It has been such a joy to serve alongside the students of Crean Lutheran High School this week. They have been joyful, humble, sacrificial and worked extremely hard all week long. I look forward to serving alongside Crean for many years to come!
Yesterday we talked about how these short-term trips are a small glimpse of Heaven. It is such a joy to serve the Lord along with brothers and sisters from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. One day we will all gather at the throne together. "The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." - John 10:10
