People at home have been moved to do and/or provide many things. People in many places are moved by the same Spirit to pray for daily needs as well as ministry tools. The Spirit in one answers the Spirit in the other. God’s Spirit puts it in the hearts of mission volunteers to go many places. They go to minister, but they are also instruments for ministry in motion.
For example, Pastor Ramon needed a suit. A pastor that taught with me learned of Pastor Ramon’s need. He gave me a suit and instructed me to get it to Pastor Ramon. The suit was ‘delivered’ this past Monday as we arrived for our first day of the Mathes Pastor Training School. Today, I took Pastor Ramon’s picture in his new suit. The prayer of one was answered by the Spirit in another and the answer was carried by mission volunteers.
Another example is the beautiful dresses and quilts we have delivered to La Romana, Santa Teresa, and now Barahona. Ladies at home make these items so others can have provision or an outreach tool. The pictures here are another example of ministry in motion. What the Spirit moved one to do served as the answer to prayers offered by another.
We sometimes see only one end of ministry in motion. A great blessing of our work is seeing both ‘ends’ of the process come together. As fun as that is, it doesn’t happen without you. You are one of the ‘ends.’ You also keep this ministry in motion.
Enjoy the rest of the pics from today’s work.
Soli Deo Gloria!
