Sunday to Monday / Smile

If you are generous with the hungry
and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out,
Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness,
your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.

Isaiah 58:10 Msg

It was our joy to welcome our partners from Love, Light and Melody, Brad Corrigan - founder and Daisy Wiberg - program director. Brad shared an update on what's happening in Nicaragua (good stuff!); with the Ileana's Smile project (documentary film, book, coffee table book, soundtrack: later this year); and stories from Bismark, the missionary we support in Nicaragua through LLM. 

We are family - God created us to be family and when we remember this precious gift we can live into God's blessing for us and light up the darkness. (Isaiah 58) Ileana's smile transformed Brad's life and then our lives and then many other lives. A trip to Nicaragua is tentatively scheduled for May 25-30, 2016; if you're interested please contact Claudia

Go here to see photos and stories we receive regularly from Bismark. Bismark has started a new church - our "sister" church! - and he prays for us and we pray for them. Look below for links to a Nicaragua web tv series that features LLM.

Take these thoughts and reflections into your week. 

  • How does being family with God’s children in Nicaragua and around the world impact your faith?
  • When have you seen a smile that made a difference in your day or your life?
  • Where can you grow generosity so that your life will begin to glow in the darkness? (Isaiah 58:10)
  • Looking ahead to next week: How does music speak to your heart?
