The Heart of a Missionary-

I know i said i didnt feel like writing but im a girl. I can change my mind.

“Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining“. 1 John 2:8b

Often when i think about the country where i live in the first word that comes to mind is darkness. If Jesus is The light and 98% of the people who live here dont know Him…. Simple math reveals to me that people here live in darkness.

But after reading this earlier today i realized that math doent always give us the right answers. The word of God does.

Yes, people here dont know Jesus. And yes, they live lives that are not honoring to Him. And yes, they are lost.

But me, my team, and the believers here shine the light of Jesus. We are the light in this city.

The darkness is passing and the true light is already shining in this city!

What a great reminder! what a great promise!
