The Countdown is On – October Mission Trip 2014

Grace International Outreach

We’re on a Mission!

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

-Matthew 28:19

As I sit here at nearly 1:50 a.m. sleep is nowhere to be found. We’ve made this trip many times, but excitement always wells up inside me as the hours pass and the time to depart grows near. Every trip almost feels like the first with regard to my level of excitement! It’s a good thing though! God instilled in me such love for these people, these children. And it is precisely that love from which this great anticipation springs forth.

Giving has become a huge part of our life. Jason and I are always looking for an unsuspecting person to bless. We have no expectation of reward and that is perhaps the most thrilling part. We especially love to give to those who can do absolutely nothing for us, which is the case with the people who live in the Don Pedro village. This is a perfect, real-life example of Jesus Christ – giving to someone who cannot do anything for you. Jesus did the very same thing for us. He came, lived and died for us and there is no way we can repay Him even if we tried.

We are so excited that we will soon have photos and video footage to share with you. We thank you in advance for your continued prayers. May God bless you all!

” ‘ “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” ‘  (Numbers 6:24-26)
