“Everybody Always”

Our time in Negritos has ended.  After months of preparation it’s done.

Isaac didn’t want to leave. He wanted to stay with Pastor Paul. He says Pastor Paul radiates the love of Jesus. And he does. Isaac has a gift of recognizing those who have a deep communion with the Lord. He’s drawn to them.

Isaac and I will miss the people and their contagious love.

This week has been overwhelming as I met various people from Negritos. As I ponder over Psalms 18:2: The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.......I watch the people of Negritos display an overwhelming passion for the Lord and trust that he will deliver them no matter what the situation is. I heard people share stories about physical ailments, school challenges, relationships with a spouse, abanonment, personal hardship and others, yet they come together as a community and love on one another assisting each other as they need.

Wow, God is good! 

Although I've been to Negritos a couple of times now, I am still just bown away by the love that pours out of the people. They have tremounds amount of joy that we should all strive to have.  I don't think I have seen more smiles on people's faces then here. It's quite contagious as I have noticed my cheeks have been hurting since we arrived from the constant similing. We should all smile more often as it can change the attitude of those around you.

Greetings! 

One of the things I love most about Jesus is that He knows his audience. In this case, me. I feel He has met me here in Peru, giving me an abundant amount of empathy to process what I am experiencing. Many times I find myself remembering stories from the bible that I can relate to a given situation.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” -- Hebrews 13:8 (NLT)

This verse really stuck with me today because Jesus is good all the time to us. Today I saw so much happiness and passion for Christ because of the consistency Jesus has.

It has been an amazing, yet exhausting, first couple of days. Travel is never really fun, especially when it involves 12.5 hours on planes, sprinting between gates to make a connection, sleeping a on a very stiff bed, and standing around waiting to get your luggage accepted onto a domestic flight in a foreign country. However, I'm glad to have done it with this team that is here in Peru. Everyone has embraced that we are on God's clock and has "rolled with the punches" with cheerful hearts.
