Happy Thusday Village People,
"We set out for the purpose of 'XYZ'... later we realized that God was actually doing something much bigger." One member of our community shared that with me this week. And yes! We may not be able to see the full picture, but God can and does. Sometimes, we have the gift to see the work of God in a situation, and in other situations, we have trust that God is working beyond our imaginations and understandings-- this is the harder work of faith.
I may not sure what your week, or month or summer has been like, but I trust that God is alive and active with you-- especially in ways that go unseen. May this encouragement give you hope. In all that we are and do, we are and we do in and with and through the presence of God, the Spirit and Christ.
If you would like to donate items for our mission partners in Haiti, here is a list of needs. Items due to campus by Monday June 19.
God, as we go this week, help us to live simple, Christ like lives and serve our neighbors.
