Be a MIssionary day 6

I had the opportunity to actually talk to Shawn for a few brief minutes today. He is loving what God is doing through the mission team. They are ministering in a beautiful, remote village 26 miles from Tula. It's a 2 hour trip through the mountains! The villagers have long prayed that God would send them a teacher. Our team is the first white visitors to the village.

Shawn said that he is doing Bible studies with the men and preaching in the evening while the ladies are doing VBS with the kids and some of the men are also doing construction work. Several of the villagers have accepted Christ, and they are so excited about God finally sending them teachers that they are butchering one of their cows and hosting a BBQ for the mission team.

Shawn is very broken at how God is working through him and the rest of the team this week. I can't wait to hear it all. Let's continue to pray for the team as they finish up in Tula tomorrow and start home on Friday. Here's the Bible study for the mission team today.

Day 6

You’ve been away from home for many days. The trip is nearing the end. You have made many new friends. You have seen God at work in incredible ways. While you are exhausted and looking forward to sleeping in your own bed, you are probably also experiencing sadness at leaving Mexico behind. Today you need strength - both physical and spiritual.

This is my prayer for you today.

Colossians 1:9-14, “So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God’s holy people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness, and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son. God has purchased our freedom with his blood and has forgiven all our sins.
