I was excited when I heard about the opportunity to serve in a mission trip to Brazil. I began to pray about my involvement and the possibility of joining the group. The Lord opened doors and allowed everything to fall into place. It also would not have been possible without the generous donations of those that God has used to help fund this trip.
I have had the opportunity to go on two mission trips in the past, on both occasions I returned with a different outlook on life. Often times I get so caught up with work, family, and “things” that God does not take first, second, or third place, but last. Psalm 46:10 says ”Be still and know that I am God”, it is an easy concept but not always an easy thing to do. If only we could focus our energy and daily focus on God and God alone. This trip will be a wonderful opportunity to focus on serving God. I am excited to be used of God in any way possible. I pray that God will kindle that fire that gets dampened so easily in our day-to-day lives.
