Reflections…

I’ve asked David and Gordon to help me do quick reflections from our trip that are interesting…and also caused us some meaningful reflection.

David Sent me this picture and a note…

“Had to have a picture of this sign as we drove from Monrovia to Buchanan.  The clinic was not as nice as anything in St. John, Indiana.  Among the needs in Liberia is the need for better medical facilities.  Perhaps another mission trip project????”

The sign reminds me of a couple things too:

1.  It takes partnerships to make a real difference. This one is Local  Government (Bassa County), along with International Support (Irish Aid), and a Corporate Sponsor (Merlin).

2.  Our focus is planting churches, but the reason for planting churches is to carry out the ministry of Jesus most effectively. His words in Matthew 25:37-40…

37“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
