I can’t take credit for this collage of words. They come from God Himself. Pulled from today’s Psalm and Gospel readings, these words epitomize a life lived in Christ and in many ways, a life lived here at Liberia Mission Inc.
The love of the kids is refreshing. They TRUST you, though they do not know you…
One of my closest friends here said, “I don’t TRUST a person if I do not know them.” But I reminded the thirteen-year-old young lady about how quick she was to TRUST me, a stranger. She remembered and smiled, letting the idea sink it.
They are learning what is right.
They are expert Rejoic-ers.
Time spent with them clears your mind, Enlightens you. They are the pure essence of Christ.
They have endured lives of trial, change, abandonment…and they endure in God’s love for them.
They are learning what is True and JUST, what is gold.
When something tastes good in Liberia, “It is sweet!” And here, the Word of God is good.
Their prayer is firm like the Rock upon which Peter built the Church – it was and is and will always be. Their redeemer never goes a day unnoticed.
They dwell in God’s house on Earth together, sharing the life of His family and creation.
They ask God to make them prosper. God asks you to make it so. He speaks through them in word and in deed.
They simply do – study, work and play – to the utmost. They have SEEN, they have been SEEN. And God is glorified here.
With Christ, they are the WAY, the truth and the LIFE.
They believe in God’s word. They do not always know their worth. But they know “AMEN.”
And through all these things, they are bringing to fruition what God desires for all of us – a fulfilling human life lived in relationship to God, to our individual selves, to each other and to the rest of Creation.
