All the believers were together and had everything in common. – Acts 2:44 (NIV)
We had the extreme joy of attending our second missions trip through Adventures in Missions last week. And, just like last year, God showed up in a mighty way. Praise Him!
We began our week as a group strangers…believers from across the country who had only a love of our Savior and a desire to serve Him in common.
We ended the week as family.
Virginia, North Carolina, New York, Georgia, Alabama, Nebraska, Connecticut, Illinois. Cities, suburbs, and farms. Young and old. Big families and small. Our demographics did not affect our love for our Savior, nor our ability to serve Him.
Big projects and small. Serving brothers and sisters in Christ and working to introduce others to Him. Hot and sweaty jobs and peaceful ones in air conditioning.
It is amazing to me what a week together will do to bond people together. It is a beautiful thing.
For the rest of our time on this earth and into eternity, we will have each other…to pray for and to pray for us, to understand and remember the joys and hard work done on our trip, and, Lord willing, to spend more time with before we journey to Heaven.
Over the next few days, I will be sharing what God did in us and through us. May you be blessed by my recounting. We certainly were blessed to be living it!
