Back from World Changers!
Thank you all for your prayers for us as we went and ministered to the people of Springfield Illinois this past week with World Changers. It was a great week of hard work, long days, sleepless nights, cold showers, bland food, etc. But I count all those things as a blessing to endure for the sake of carrying the Gospel to areas where hope was nowhere to be found. Maybe in some small way a group of over-sugared teenagers and exhausted adults was able to reflect the light of Christ in such a way that those areas will never be the same again. Maybe we will dine with the Lord at the Supper and be seated next to people who were directly impacted by the sacrifice of time and energy in 2008. Maybe someone who was introduced to Jesus that week will go on and grow up and serve the Lord in a very influential way or lead a church or die a martyr for the cross. Maybe revival breaks out in Springfield and hundreds are swept up into the merciful arms of Christ. We can only hope that God received glory and honor by our work, and that is all we can do or hope for, and let Him do the rest.
