“LORD…all we have accomplished you have done for us…”
Like refreshing rains the team from Calvary came and blessed many with their love, their joy, their wonderful attitudes and compassion. They not only refreshed and blessed the Kenyans and Ethiopians but where of great encouragement to us in ways to numerous to count here.
It was wonderful to watch as they loved on the people we love and serve here. We heard many comments on the joy and love that seemed to flow from them and the fact that they did not seem like strangers but like one of the people here.
This the first attempt to write and share with you some of the blessings we have found here and we will try and update you in a timely way on future blogs of day to day events. Many days are so full we long to just go rest but even as we go to meet someone else in need of prayer, counciling or physical help we are the ones who come away blessed.
God truely directed in our name, “Garments of Praise”, and we seek to lift heavy burdens, encourage the lonely and those in dispare; exchange the spirit of heaviness for the “garment of praise” and help bring the joy of Jesus to his precious children here. Life can be so incredible hard here but Jesus alway gives hope and often uses a human vessel to comfort with hugs and tears or smiles. Your prayers are a precious gift from God and we could not survive with out them.
May the Joy of the Lord be your strength as you serve Him in your place of service
blessings and love
