Colossians 2:6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. (NIV)
As we head back home, I look back at these few days spent in the mission field and I can’t help but feel fulfilled, energized and encouraged. I can tell you many stories of Christians; their struggles and their hopes.
When I leave Baja, I can’t help but feel a little piece of my heart staying with these brethren. They have grown on me and continue to grow on me. I just hope I can get to see them again to encourage them. They think so highly of us and the constant words from their mouths are “Thank You”. They are very grateful, and they feel an overwhelming sense of joy and a need to express that joy. You can feel their love when they hug, kiss and smile at you. As soon as they make eye contact with you they give you a big smile. You can feel the love of Christ. It is wonderful to be a Christian!
Now that we are back home we are thankful that we were able to experience this. We pray that you, one day, can share these experiences with us.
