Sharing the Gospel through a Shoe Box
The last couple of weeks I have been on a huge learning curve as God has lead me to work with Operation Christmas Child, which is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse (http://www.samaritanspurse.ca).
As we travelled today from our staff retreat in North Carolina, we made a pit stop at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte. I must say that if you are ever in that part of the United States you need to stop there. What a wonderful legacy Billy has left for the rest of us who follow him. He followed Jesus Christ with all of his heart, I would even say that he has lived his life to exalt Jesus. I feel so privileged to be a part of that legacy as I begin to interact with folks in Latin America. This trip is a result of Billy’s obedience to the call of God in his life.
It reminds me that all of us are now building a legacy for others to follow. 1 Corinthians 3 talks about how church builders construct the people of God (His temple). With what kind of material are will building, something that will last forever (gold, silver, precious stone) or that which is here today and gone tomorrow (wood, hay, stubble)?
Thank you for your prayers and joining me in this God-given ministry!
