Peru // sat. am
i’m back. for reasons unknown yet exciting to me, God has chosen to break my heart for this country and its people. the fact that i get to be a part of ongoing ministry here both blesses me and messes me up. we spent the day today in worship, visiting Hannah’s Home & Hannah’s Hope, spending time with dear friends in ministry, and playing ball with orphans. don’t mistake that because Jesus said the poor will always be with us that they can be ignored & we just have to put up with them.
don’t bear trouble, use it. take whatever happens – justice and injustice, pleasure and pain, compliment and criticism – take it up into the purpose of your life and make something out of it. turn it into testimony.
