The older I get, the more I find myself reflecting on some of the memories in my life.
I have SO MUCH to be thankful for!
I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Romania, back in 2001. I learned a lot on that trip… It took me several years to realize, and process all the Lord showed me during that time. So many times we get focused on what’s right in front of us, that we forget there’s a big world out there that needs Jesus.
While in Romania, our team spent a couple of weeks putting on, “american style” youth camps for orphans. We just showed them the love of Jesus, and watched lives change.
Over a decade later, thoughts still run through my mind about some of those kids (now adults). I had one guy in my group, that had AIDS. I still remember laying hands on him, and praying in faith for his healing. I remember watching him get on the bus and leaving. I prayed, God show him how amazing you are. We had others in our group that had never met their parents. I asked the Lord to show them the love of a Father. I believe He did! Are those that we introduced Jesus to that week, still following Him? I hope they are experiencing the fullness of His grace.
I guess I want know to I get to heaven, what all HE did those two weeks…
One of the guys on our mission team put together a video of some of the memories we made that Summer.
I’ve laughed and cried, as I watched them. (Part 3 tore me up!)
