Encouragement after the holidays!
This past week I had the huge privilege and joy of serving at Joni & Friends camp for families affected by disability. Over the next few days I would love to share with you some of the amazing people I met and the miraculous ways God moves at these camps.
After a few days being home from the amazing week of helping out in medical clinics in the Philippines, we find we have been asked why we go...do we really see the power of God? What keeps us returning again and again to these beautiful people? The stories we share are about real individuals, precious people who are able to experience God's love and compassion through us, maybe for the first time. Could there be anything more valuable and thrilling to be a part of?
Traveling to remote areas in Asia takes around 24 hours and you mysteriously lose a whole day. It truly feels like traveling to the "ends of the earth!" We found this Psalm to be true and we have to share our shouts of joy today.
We are so thankful for another incredible trip to the Philippines to help bring the love of God to a beautiful tribe of people. We joined an amazingly passionate and efficient team for 4 days of medical clinics to villages with little or no healthcare. The traveling was rough, heat was intense, mosquitoes were insidious but the smiles of happy patients and the adventure of seeing God's love invading the darkness greatly overshadowed any discomforts.
