Isaiah 26:3-4 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is STAYED on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in YAH, the Lord is everlasting strength.
Greetings from Rosarito,
As we’re wrapping up our first week here at Calvary School of Missions, the Lord has been bringing to remembrance all the pivotal moments in my walk with Him. Going back to the day the Lord got a hold of my heart and the amazing journey He has had me on. It has not been without trials, but He never promised us that it would be easy. He did promise that we would never be separated from His love (Romans 8:38-39). That love has been able to sustain me through the ups and downs of life and now a driving force to share that love with all the people the Lord puts in my path. God has been so faithful to guide me exactly where I need to be as I just seek for His Kingdom and His righteousness. One of the books that we will be reading is “Absolute Surrender” by Andrew Murray which I know will be life altering for me.
Matthew 28:19-20: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
It’s such a blessing to be around awesome servants who have “radical” hearts to share God’s love with others. It’s so beautiful to see all the different unique personalities and the giftings God has put together in this group. One of the emphasis of our classes has been the Purpose of the Church and the calling on each member of the body to share the Gospel. This week my mind has been overwhelmed, in a good way, by all the great truths the Bible has plainly laid out for us. I love how God makes it so clear in the Bible, from the beginning, that His heart is to have relationship with His creation. Just like in the Garden of Eden when mankind chose to rebel against God but He lovingly continued to pursue them. In His mercy and grace He sent Jesus to restore our relationship with Him. “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” 1 Corinthians 5:20.
One of the many highlights of this week has been visiting HomeX in the outskirts of Rosarito. We had to drive up a bumpy dirt road with our hers bobbing around which is typical. Aaron and Jena made it a very enjoyable ride as they shared the missionary journey the Lord has them on in the 10/40 Window. They lightheartedly talked about all the rough terrains they have had to travel to reach the “unreached” people groups around them. They even called the road we were traveling a “cute” road in comparison to many roads they have traveled on. This was a sobering thought as I reflected on how the Lord has to prepare us all for all the “rough roads” we will have to navigate through life. When we arrived to our destination, we were all so encouraged and fired up to share with the people of the community. One of my favorite things to do is work with children, and I had the privilege of translating for my friend Rachel as she shared the story of Jonah with the kiddos. I had a great time coming alongside Pastor Eddie who has faithfully been doing a home Bible study in the community for about a year now.
Thank you for prayerfully and financially supporting me as I follow the call that God has on my life. You’re in my prayers, and I look forward to sharing my journey at CSOM 2020 with you! If you’d like to partner with me click on the link below. Lord Bless you!
