For His Name’s Sake

“The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He renews my life; He leads me along the right paths for His name’s sake.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:1-3‬ ‬‬

If there is anything the Lord has been teaching me this week, it’s how ferocious He is about His glory. This past missionary we got to see many people choose to follow Jesus, take steps of obedience, and be disciples by making disciples. However, I think that the best part for me has been watching God work in the lives of our team and drawing them closer to Himself.

The Lord had provided so many things at just the right moment this week and constantly reminded me that it is all for His glory. In the world that we live in it becomes so easy to see everything through the lens of our little lives. Even being on mission with God. When things go right or wrong we think that is was due to us or done for us. The reality however is that all of things God is doing around us is ultimately so that we would give Him glory and point others to do the same. 

Here is a quick update on where I’m at…

I ended up staying an extra day in La Paz to be with both of our country coordinators. I’m praising the Lord for the conversations we got to have heart to heart between the 3 of us. I’m also praying that He will receive much glory for the results of those conversations. 

I’m headed out to Cochabamba this morning with one of our coordinators (Osvi) to meet up with potential partners and have a few trainings over the next four days. We currently have four sites to visit, two houses to see, two translator/disciple trainings and a number of up in the air appointments. 

Here are a few things to be praying for…

  • Wisdom for Osvi and I to communicate vision and see with whom and where God wants us to work
  • Continued heart to heart discussions between Osvi and myself
  • Make the most of the time (potential partners make it to meetings and trainings)
  • Good communication to home (how I miss my girls!)

I am currently a missionary and the Communications Director at New Life Global Ministries. I love what I do and the people around me. Life is about following Jesus and loving people. I want to leave the world a different place than what I found it.
