Galveston, Day 2: Lots of lessons to be learned…

In life, we all face difficulties. Hardships and trials are not new to any human that has walked this Earth. Regardless of what we have been through, we have to keep making it through life the best we can. For many of us, we draw our strength from Christ. For others, they may draw their strength from the love of others or from the smile of a distant friend.

Today, we wondered how strangers could behave so familiar with us. How they could run to hug us as if we were life long friends. We wondered how people could go through difficult situations and still desire to love. Everyone wants to be loved. We sanded tables, we cleared gutters, we facilitated games, we painted faces, we gave hugs and had laughs all in the name of Jesus and all for the benefit of the kingdom. Remember, non ministrare sed ministrare (not to be served, but to serve).
