Hanging out in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this week! Yes, that’s right – Brazil. Wow. I am very honored to be part of this trip. We’re here with a team from Kensington, partnering with pastors from all over Brazil as they learn together about church planting and strengthening their own spiritual lives. We heard three messages today, and every one felt timely for my own life … taking time to reflect with Jesus is more important than ever … especially as we get further along in ministry.
I am thankful for the reminder that my strength and joy will always come from Him. As I reflect with Him, my joy and passion for Him will grow. It sounds like a no-brainer. It’s a simple thing – a basic thing that I know but so often forget. My goal from this trip, besides trying to share with some wonderful people about using drama in spreading the gospel, is to leave with a renewed purpose and passion for spending time – real time – with Jesus.
I definitely miss my kiddos, and I’m so thankful for technology that allows us to see their sweet little faces even all these miles away. Please pray for our trip, for the wisdom God wants to share through us or with us.
Oh – and I’m learning a wee bit of Portuguese! So fun. Five words today, and maybe a few more tomorrow!
