As some of you may know, my honey went to Niger Africa at the end of January. It was a life changing trip for not only him, but for our whole church. Scott got to see what the church looks like outside of the USA, and it closely resembles the first century church. The church of Jesus’ time.
We here in the USA have gotten to where we show up to church on Sunday, and maybe a mid week study if we can fit it into our schedules. Most of the time we really are lucky to even make it to Sunday every week. (National polls report that Christians believe that once to twice a month is average attendance, and that is good enough for them.)
I had someone tell me they love the Lord, but they just don’t want to spend every Sunday at Church. God forbid, you have a fellowship after church, it just takes up the whole day!
So when my honey came home from Africa after seeing the pastor and his family had an open door policy, day and night to anyone in need of prayer or help, he was amazed.
Some may think, ‘How can that be, what about family time? What about private time?’ You have to understand, in these countries, not everyone will have a Bible to read or a Christian friend to call when in need of help or understanding. The people of Niger have Jesus and the Holy Spirit giving them a hunger to share the Love of God with other’s.
After seeing this and having it make a great impact on his life and on the way he sees things, he couldn’t wait to show others.
The next trip is already in the planning. This one will be for the youth of our church to go to Belize and work with kids in an orphanage. There are many different ways for the youth to learn from the kids in Belize and to share Gods love with the orphans. We are in prayer that this will be a life changing experience for all who go.
So the point of this post is we need to raise money, $1600. per person. We need some idea’s of how we can do that. Plus I ask for your prayers for the team going, to not only build the team that will be impacted the most but will have the most impact on the lives that they touch.
