We suffered a difficult blow to our family yesterday as my wife’s mother suffered a broken hip during a fall. She is a great lady in her late 70′s and a strong witness to the power of faith. We all know that as we begin to age, our earthly bodies begin to fail and thus the strength of our faith and family kick in to support us during these difficult times. We began to get the word out to family/friends/ministry and the response in prayer and support has been such a blessing.
I love waking up each day and learning what the world is going to present us. God did such a masterful job with nature and we are so blessed with the intelligence He has given us to live within this world. If you think about it, God was the Master Artist painting a beautiful painting and we are brushes being used for His masterpiece. What story will your painting reveal?
This past week our team was energized by the students from Mississippi College that joined with our MMI Amazon to serve the children and people of the Amazonas Region. We are honored to have over 70 Universities from around the world join with us each year and these Medical, Nursing, and Dental Students provide such an enthusiasm to our staff that it helps to motivate us all to serve.
My Father finished his mission on earth many years ago and there is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him or wish he was here to talk to. Through my sorrow, I am still comforted knowing that while on this earth, my Dad served God to the best of his ability and finished his journey of service. As we celebrate Father's Day this weekend, we must never lose focus on our Heavenly Father and thank Him for the gifts that He has provided so that we too can use these gifts during our gift of life on this earth.
