It’s that time of year again when all the Christmas decorations are going up and you can hear Bing Crosby’s voice echoing through the mall singing, I’m dreaming of a white Christmas! Flyers are already out for this year’s Black Friday deals and we’re ready to buy – whether we need it or not! It’s an insanely fun time as the USA decks the halls with commercialized propaganda that really does make you feel good! And yes, it’s all done for you and your valued credit card.
Hello! Just wanted to give you an update on the work project here in Zambia, Africa! All things considered, everything is going great! We just finished baking all 80,000 bricks and now we just have to start loading and taking them up to the work site. God is really starting to open doors with the building and it’s not even up yet! I recently had a meeting with a government employee at the clinic, and an opportunity has presented itself.
“God will only ask of you what you’re able to do.” This quote is often a solace as we look at our own inadequacies and failures. It gives us comfort that we’ll never be asked to do anything beyond our ability and we won’t ever have to give what we’re not in possession of. Sometimes we see those who are literally moving mountains for the cause of Christ and in our hearts we hope that one day we can do the same. We want to matter and we want to know that we’re impacting our world in some way, shape or form. But if we’re simply not able then how can we help others if we can’t even help ourselves?
