| Trusting God in Challenging Times

Psalm 46:1-3 has been a source of faith and hope during this challenging time:

God is our refuge and strength, 
a very present help in trouble. 
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change, 
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 
though its waters roar and foam, 
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

The more obstacles you have, the more opportunities there are for God to do something. ~ Clarence W. Jones | A Journey with “Topes”

In the book of Acts there are many obstacles (topes) that must be overcome for the Gospel to spread.  Fear, language, prejudice, funding, geography, opposition… and the list goes on.  One can easily make the case that these same obstacles still challenge mission today. But as we learn from Acts, there are no barriers to the movement of God’s Spirit! God’s work, God’s will, will be accomplished.

| Trials in The Journey

We know that with this trial God is inviting us to a deeper trust. And we invite you to join us in this part of the journey by lifting us up in prayer so the Lord brings to our path the right medical team that can properly diagnose and treat me and the peace in our minds and hearts that everything will be ok.

| Mastering the basics

We’re on this journey for the long haul. So, we have intentionally decided to master two things we believe to be foundational in our calling to Chiapas. “A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in a little thing is a big thing,” Hudson Taylor wisely observed. We want to be faithful in two “little things”: depending on God and cultivating trust and relationships.

| Entrusted with Much

“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be expected.” (Luke 12:48, CSB) I had always thought the “much” Luke describes was money but over the past three days God had gently, and not-so-gently taught me that it meant so much more… Each of us are called to share what we have been given whether it is time, financial resources, or prayer. We are the ones who have been given and entrusted with much and that “much” is the Gospel message. It is love. It is faith. What will you give?

| Kolaval – Thank You – Gracias!!!
