The Power of One

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

My wife Amy, Vikki Luce, and Mary Jo Bruner all recently returned from Managua,Nicaragua where they served as a ministry team. They visited Amanda Jensen who is serving there for seven weeks this summer through the organization “Love, Light and Melody.”

It is such a blessing that they were able to go. Some might say it is futile. So many there are in poverty and the resources are so limited. What can one, or a few do to transform a situation?

One of my favorite quotes is from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “ To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the a world a bit better, whether by a healthy child ,a garden patch, or redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you lived; this is to have succeeded.”

May you each seek to succeed as Ralph Waldo Emerson suggests.


For further reading on the power of one, check out Luke 15 in your nearest Bible.

God bless,

Pastor David J. Jensen
