What a great week we’ve had. We’re back in Lima and enjoying some much-needed rest before heading back to the States later today.
It’s great to see how God is working in this region and in some surprising ways. Each day was filled with opportunities, some that seem bigger than others, but all with the fingerprints of God all over them. More than anything, we were able to see how He is orchestrating the ministry here.
If we zoom in on the details of everyday ministry here, it is possible to get frustrated and even discouraged. Then we have to remember that our ways are not his ways nor his thoughts our thoughts.
When we “fly up to 30,000 feet”, we see a TREMENDOUS amount of work being done and additional pieces of the puzzle flowing into place. We have to remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. We aren’t interested in short-term gains at the expense of long-term loss. As we see a mixture of big and small gains, I am reminded that God’s Word never returns void and WILL fulfill it’s purpose. I am tremendously encouraged to see what great things God is doing in the Yauyos Region of Peru and so happy I am called to be a part of it! Please continue to pray for us. More to come.
