To Xoy and Back
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
It’s difficult to describe all that God did in the lives of nine of us as we traveled from First Presbyterian Church, Madisonville to Divine Savior Presbyterian Church in Xoy, but it is not difficult to describe how I feel – exhilarated in spirit and grateful to our Lord! God’s Holy Spirit was so apparent, leading us in travel, guiding us in the water purification installation, teaching us as we taught the teachers, and pursuing us as we shared blessed fellowship with the brothers and sisters of the church and community of Xoy, Mexico.
On our last day, I shared with Elder Samuel (their pastor) that our two cultures had come together in God’s magnificent sight; and as we returned to our own ‘normalcy’ of Madisonville, Kentucky I would benefit so much more from taking a bit of them with me. God opens eyes, minds, and hearts to the ways of His purposes for us.
Thanks to all in the church. You resourced us so generously. You prayed for us unceasingly. We felt your participation in God’s work.
