The Gift of Christmas

 

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

The greatest gift we have ever been given has been the presence of Jesus on earth.  God’s son, our teacher and guide was sent to this earth to provide us an understanding of how we are to live our lives.  The Bible is our instruction manual on how to be missional in our journey and live our faith 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Jesus spoke of love, compassion, seeking out the meek, the poor, the mute, and the lame and sharing the love of God with each one.

The team at Medical Ministry International is honored to be in service following the guide that Jesus provided all of us.  Jesus died, so that our sins would be forgiven if we put our faith and beliefs in Him.  An incredible gift, but one that we must never take lightly.  We are intent on living our faith in our actions and efforts while serving on this earth.  We each have unique skills and gifts that when combined together can help make miracles come to life.  This is not because of us, but because of Him.  God has blessed each of us, much more than we deserve.

We would like to take this moment to say thank you to all who have joined with Medical Ministry International to be in service for His work.  God has touched many of your hearts to provide donations, volunteers, equipment, and supplies so that we are able to do the work that we do.  None of this would be possible without your support.  Thank you!

We take our roles here at Medical Ministry International very seriously and will continue to work to optimize every single gift, volunteer, etc. that is provided to our ministry.  God bless you and your family during this Christmas Season.  No greater gift has ever been given and we are honored to be in His service with you!

Merry Christmas!

Kitchen Nightmares

Interesting title for a blog about “Optimizing Ministry”, huh?  Many of you may be familiar with Gordon Ramsey’s popular show in the United Kingdom and United States.  Chef Ramsey travels to restaurants that are struggling to keep their doors open and performs significant makeovers to help them get back on track.  It’s an interesting dynamic as many of these businesses are run by families and a lot of the issues relate to long historic challenges tied to this fact.  It’s a very interesting show as usually there are a lot of “turf wars” where everyone has kind of gone off and focused on their own interests and have lost the big picture of how the restaurant is supposed to stay in business.  Ramsey is a tough cookie, but through the course of the show, you realize that there is a huge heart behind the bark and he seriously cares about the people, their family, etc.  There are many reality shows that have very little redeeming value, but Kitchen Nightmares has been a great microcosm of real life and I hate to hear that Gordon Ramsey is retiring from doing the show after this year.

Gratitude and Thanks!

A sense of appreciation for blessings and gifts received, accompanied by the good will from the benefactor and a passion to pay it forward.  This is Medical Ministry International’s definition of Thanksgiving.

Christians at Peace…not Christians at Ease

Christians at Peace…not Christians at Ease

The Bible begins with God, and any governing body best take heed that He is in command.  The Apostle Paul urged all Christians to pray for our leaders, kings, governments, etc. as a peaceful society allows the presence and word of God to be heard clearly without distraction.  Rules, Processes, and Authority are meant to separate evil and punish those who try to harm society.  Satan thrives in chaos.  A chaos that only can occur when others allow it to infiltrate our lives.  It is only at a point where our loyalty to God and Scripture is being hampered that we must be willing to stand up and be defiant to abuse of Leadership.
