When I was a child and then a teenager, our family piled into the car and drove around to see the Christmas lights on homes in the neighborhoods. Sometimes we did this on our way home from our church’s Christmas program. A funny memory is when I was an older teenager, and Mom and I drove home from the Christmas program together. It was almost Christmas Day and we had not yet had our annual drive with the family to see the Christmas lights. We decided to go ahead that night even though it was just the two of us. We went through one neighborhood that was not so familiar to us.
One of the areas of missions focus in Mission Friends is in supporting missions. When we think of supporting missions, we think of giving to missions financially. Supporting missions also includes providing personal ministry to missionaries. We minister to missionaries when we give words of encouragement or do kind things for them. Mission Friends groups do this so well when you make cards and notes to send to missionaries.
In Ephesians 3:20, Paul says that God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” Before I went on a missions trip a month ago, I never could have imagined what God would do through some little preschoolers in Guatemala. I was blessed to be able to go on a missions trip sponsored by Florida Women’s Missions and Ministries to serve for a week with Orphan’s Heart at the Child Malnutrition Center in Guatemala.
