Hello everyone, to start off I have to say that God has been faithful and good to me and so life has been great for me, As you know I have been living at my sister’s place in Ohio and since I moved here I have been praying a lot and seeking God direction for me at this time. After sending out bunches of resume’s and talking to lots of people, churches and organizations I finally have a job. So, here are the quick highlights.
Over the past several years, my heart has been increasingly burden with meeting both the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world. As I sought out where God would have me to go, I was drawn to seeking a placement within a Christian Relief and Development organization. After a lengthy process of phone calls, applications, and interviews, in my heart I have settled on the Samaritan’s Purse organization headed by Franklin Graham. If you have not heard of them maybe you know them because of the Operation Christmas Child (Shoeboxes) program, they are the same organization. As I sought an employment opportunity the best option and fit for me at this time is to serve as an intern with Samaritan’s Purse as an International field worker. The hope on their part and on mine is that if I do a good job and if there is an open position at the end of the internship, I hopefully and likely will be offered a permanent full time position. There is no guarantee of a full time job after the internship, but I feel as though this is where God is leading me to go and I know that he will open the doors that need to be opened in the right place at the right time.
So the deal is that I will be heading off to
I truly believe that Christians and the Christian church have a massive responsibility before God to do good to those in need, both physically and spiritually. I understand the Bible to instruct us to do good to all people and as we do good, peoples hearts are opened to the voice of the Holy Spirit calling them to salvation. One of the verse that has stood out to me in my devotions over the past few years is Proverbs 3:27 which says “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them. 28 If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.” There are so many people in the world in great need, who better or more called to meet these needs than those who have experienced the life changing power of salvation. We are ambassadors of God calling the world to “be reconciled back God.” Reconciliation with God is the answer to the great problems facing our world today. If we are not reconciled to God through the salvation offered to us through Jesus Christ, there is no real hope of solving the issues that are tearing our world apart. There, now you have a little theology behind why I feel God calling me to this area of ministry and why I am so excited about the opportunity to get my feet wet in the International Relief and Development sector of Christian ministry. I feel like I have a lot to offer and a lot to learn, I am looking forward to the challenge.
That is the scoop on my life. I would appreciate your continued prayers for myself and for the people of
I pray for God to bless you and all that he has given you to do for his kingdom.
