Finally….the first blog post!!!! What fun it will be to share with you (my family, friends, acquaintances, and future sons and daughters-in-law) the things that are happening here in Honduras.
This blog was born out of my desire to keep in touch with all of you, share thoughts about life, post pictures of events that are happening in The Pentecostals of Honduras, and keep you updated on the family farm (we have 17 new baby chicks). Thanks to the many young people in my life who encouraged me to take a leap of faith into the “unknown” world of technology and showed me how to do it (stop laughing!).
On a more serious note, recently I was reading a book written by a missionary to India. He posed a question something like this, “If you could spend your life doing one thing for God, what would it be?” I began to ponder that question, and came up with this answer. If I am only going to do one thing for God in this life, I choose to encourage every child and young person that I meet to have a “heart deep” relationship with Jesus. Beginning with my own children.
In this day and age we don’t need shiny, plastic Christians. We need Christians that love like Jesus loved, reached like Jesus reached, walk like Jesus walked. Christians who do not have to live in their comfort zone. Christians whose only focus is not food, or fashion, or gossip. Christians who see the big picture. Christians who recognize that there is a world full of lost souls who need the hope that Jesus brings. That’s the kind of “heart deep” relationship I’m talking about.
Now putting the question to you…
If you could spend your life doing one thing for God, what would it be?
