Thank you, South Fork Church of Christ

I have been in Guatemala full-time for 4 years and it has been a wonderful opportunity. It has had it times of uncertainty but that comes with any adventure. It has been very obvious to me that this is where I am suppose to be at this time. God has provided everything that I need and it seems that each day I need less in this world.

I am very thankful to be working with Health Talents and I am very thankful to be sponsored by the Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, NC.

When I was home during Christmas, I met with the Missions Committee and The Church has agreed to sponsor me for two more years.

I remember four years ago when Charlie read the passage from Matthew and I still carry the yellow card in my Bible.

Jesus went through the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them for they were harassed helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He then said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Therefore, ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest field."

When we are Christians, our lives and our activities reflect Christ and the church. Coming here to Guatemala added new responsibility. Now, my life and my actions also reflect Health Talents and The South Fork Church of Christ. I take this responsibility seriously.

It is our responsibility to work in the field. I pray that our work here will be the service that God wants and that it will lead others to Christ.
