My friend (and editor of my newsletter), Julie Medina wrote this for the April newsletter and I thought I’d share it with you.
Our trip to Roatan was filled with defining moments and one was to see the warmth of the H onduran people having a genuine happiness towards life despite living in circumstances of need. Visiting the island, the school and the girl’s home was so meaningful. Our time there caused a rethinking of our priorities and to reflect on what’s really important when it comes to living in Christ. Do we really need all the things we have or things we want to be happy and fulfilled? W e returned home with a renewed sense of purpose; to give more time and resources so others can have an opportunity for a better life. W e’re so inspired and grateful
for the time we spent with Deborah, whose heart and soul are completely devoted to God’s people in Roatan. What a privilege it was to meet Fredy Lopez, who
serves with such enthusiasm, compassion and commitment! It was a joy have our son, David with us. H e stayed to volunteer and perfect his Spanish for whats ahead. God is absolutely involved in the details of our lives when we trust H im. It’s through H is love that we learn to love and to share our lives to help others, wherever we are in the world. It’s never to late to care.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
