Here on the mission field we get into a routine just like anyone else does. You have weeks that are ordinary and mundane and then you have weeks where there is hardly time to breathe. The latter of the two would describe our past week. It is winter break here so we have been taking advantage of it in the different ministries. This week we had a play day at the park with our kid’s club, we had the adolescent group over to our house to watch a Christian movie, we had the young adults over for a time of fellowship and Bible study, and we had a couple of families over for lunch on different days. All that packed in with our normal responsibilities and it was a very full week. Building relationships, “spending” and “being spent”, is exhausting but the blessings the Lord gives through it are well worth it. Seeing friendships and relationships grow and people maturing spiritually are just some of the blessings!
