The Cost of Serving

Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.”

 

Have any of you given up something to join this mission trip to Mexico?   Whether it was a Spring Break trip with friends, a nice relaxing trip to the beach, or just a great week at home, I would say that all of you have sacrificed something to join this mission trip in order to help others. Right now Glynn and I are in Alaska ministering to people that are in Nome for the Iditarod.  Honestly, this was not an easy trip for me to take.  I found out, after becoming a mom, that it gets really hard to leave your little children behind.  Even though I know they are having the time of their lives being spoiled by grandparents, I miss them terribly!  Through the process of praying and preparing for this trip, I’ve realized that the more something costs you the more it will mean to you. This will be a trip that God will use in my life to draw me closer to Him. I will be able to look back and say , “Look at all God did!”  It has also helped me to totally lean on the Lord knowing that He is in complete control.   I know that God has an incredible work to do through us in Alaska and through you in Mexico.  Glynn and I are praying God’s blessings on you as you serve Him!
