Fresh Look of Spring

“ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)

Spring brings the excitement of new beginnings, new opportunities, and a fresh look at the world. As I think about the beauty of the world around us, I am also reminded about our church’s missionaries, trudging around on a dump site where people live in makeshift houses and experience a daily dose of smelly burning trash; the residents sharing their site with birds and other animals picking through the trash. However, I’m fairly certain our missionaries will bring back stories of warmth, compassion, and the new friends they made along the way.

Please join me in praying for our missionaries in Nicaragua on this glorious April day. May they be filled with God’s presence and experience the hope and love of God’s amazing spirit.

Dear Lord, we are continually blessed with your love and grace. We have been fortunate to receive multitudes of good fortune in our daily lives. Please bless those who provide gifts of love and the sharing of their hearts. Bless our missionaries for the work they provide and fill them with your Spirit. Be with those both in our congregation and on the dump site that are fighting ill health and need your healing touch. You are the provider for all and we offer our little gifts in comparison to all that you provide. Amen.

Be with us God and fuel us with the power of the Holy Spirit…to the ends of the earth and especially at the dump sites of the world.
