Blessed to be a Blessing
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
This is a tough column to write this month. Tomorrow morning fourteen members of FPC (and one friend from Houston, Texas we haven’t met yet) will be flying to Merida, Yucatan, Mexico for our third Living Waters for the World mission trip. I’d love for this column to be about how wonderful it was, but it hasn’t happened yet. Anticipation is high, knowing from experience what it means to help in providing a community with clean, safe water – something every one of us has the privilege of taking for granted.
Can you imagine the anticipation and joy of the members of Getsemani Presbyterian Church in Opichen? I doubt any of us really can. Just know that these partners in mission have been praying and preparing for what we will join them in accomplishing for their entire community.
I hope you can feel the joy of knowing our entire church – through prayer and financial support – will be a part of Christ’s plan for His body, the church. Prayer and preparation, teamwork in ministry beyond our own walls, achieving what we can only do together, yet only when our focus is on serving Jesus by loving God and loving others.
