Saturday was terribly ordinary and good. Without an agenda and much needed rest, I slept in and then went for a run. I missed my long run that I normally share with friends. But it was great to get in a few miles, survive the heat and then let the day unfold. We risked a little motor taxi and buzzed up and down to the grocery and picking up dinner. The conversation and learning are a blessing. Just being in the culture is a great help to me. Jesus preached the kingdom is near, even at hand. Paul preached the living out of faith as believers. We bring hope and the love we were asked to share (John 15:12). When you have received such as the love of Christ you have much to share.
This morning we are out early to go with Adolfo and his family for his daughter’s baptism. It will be special day. There is some travel and Adolfo is picking us up soon. I am mindful this morning of the gathering in my church at home. I will miss the worshipping congregation and am especially thinking of our youth who are bringing the message through word and song. Listen well and listen deep to these young voices. God is stirring the generations and what they have to say will show us much of what is to come.
Much Joy and Gratefulness this morning.
