8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
I never imagined before my first mission trip to Honduras (in 2001) what a profound effect that location would have on my faith. The people that I have met there over the years, and the people I have ministered alongside (Hondurans and Haven-ites alike) have been God’s agents to touch my life in areas of generosity, humility, kinship, deep joy, and more. And it all happens each time I land in this Central American country.
God, thank You for inviting me to move beyond my own “Jerusalem” in mission as I have traveled to the ends of the earth (on a dusty Honduran mountain road) only to find You more deeply present in my life. And thank You for revealing Yourself to me on each step I take on the path of discipleship, following my Lord and Savior Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
