I am the rich man?

Transition has not been easy. I have been back for more than three weeks, yet the impact still lives deep in my heart. For at least three days, all of the missionaries had the same feelings. Jesus' lessons tell us that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. When learning this story, we never thought of ourselves as the rich. Being in Honduras, we have seen how much we have taken our blessings for granted.

This is not the end of the story. I thought once we got back, there would be nothing to write. I was terribly wrong. We have developed a bond that can not be described. We have all seen how selfish we have been and are making changes. Never before have I felt so willing to share my faith. I find myself talking about God's blessings in virtually every conversation.

When I see Joel (x2), Josue, Kristen(x2), Tony, Rhio, Archer, Savannah, Palmer, Alan, Craig and Barbara, I can't help but yell "Por Favor." The term has become out mantra... our way of remembering. It is saying, "You are loved by God. You are continually blessed. Keep remembering and continue to be a blessing to others."

My faith in Him has increased immeasurably. I have had a song in my heart for some time, but only now have I been able to give it a true voice. I was presented with an interesting challenge this past Sunday, that is a strong part of this entry. Am I living such a life, that those that know me can come to me when they have questions about Christ? I am his disciple, my life should reflect this to all who see me. I pray that my light is able to shine bright enough so that all will know that I too am a child of God.

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in they sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer." - Psalms 19:14
