Back To the Real World
Maybe you got back today or are still on the road.
Perhaps you have gotten unpacked and even gotten a head start on your laundry.
Maybe you even got a chance to get some house chores caught up or gotten to work.
If you are in school maybe you are counting days to start back to school or a new college.
This week on the reservation we did much to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus.
Exuding love to all who would listen and listening to all who would talk.
This year we had record numbers in attendance again as God continues to bring fruit to our efforts.
Sports Camp, VBS, the Senior Center, Construction Projects, the Kitchen and our ladies and men Bible study groups were excellent with already new ideas being formed for next year.
Our teens were outstanding in the Everything Skit, our young leaders continue to grow and excel. Our adult leaders continue to grow in their faith and their witness continuing to be innovative and invigorating.
This year…we must be getting closer…much closer as Satan this year attacked us greatly.
For Satan does not attack those who are not doing God’s bidding.
There have literally been hundreds of us over the last six years who have dropped all of what we could have otherwise been doing to serve our Navajo Brothers and Sisters in Christ in Pueblo Pintado.
For it is when we serve others when we are most like Him.
When Jesus walked the earth, he did not work from a home base on even have a home during the years of his ministry, but spent time out in the world doing the work of His Father.
But here we are…back in the rush and confusion of our own lives.
Going back to our churches, work and jobs.
Going back to what many people say is the real world but nothing could be further from the truth.
Because the “real world” is not one where we simply work and play but the true “real world” is on the Navajo Indian Reservation/where we serve.
A world where God wants us to serve each other every day.
Be sure you seek to be Christ each and every day to others!
Absent my own death or permanent disability I am going back to see our friends on the reservation next year for my faith life continues to grow as I tell our Navajo brothers and sisters who Christ is.
I make sure that I tell them that I am just like them, seeking to learn and not one as who has learned as we all fall short of the glory of God.
In our talks the last nights we were reminded again that our Navajo friends are counting down the days to return…but so am I.
I have already written my new friends and will continue to do so all year as we all need an encouraging word from God.
We are not arriving back in the Real World…we have just left it.
And I greatly miss each and every one of you and our new found and long-time friends in Pueblo Pintado.
Each of you are now forever our family…we are here for you 24/7 no matter what the time of the day…or night.
We love you and look forward to serving along all who will answer His call and our journey. In the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ,
