The World Race - Week Fifteen, This Little Light Of Mine

Matthew 5:16

The above verse (Matthew 5:16) is exactly what our daughter, #1, and her team is doing - letting their lights shine. She is in country #4,
month #4 on a mission trip with the World Race. This is a difficult and dangerous country to be in when it comes to Christianity. But it seems like a great place to visit. I have seen a lot of pictures that our daughter & her teammates have posted. It looks like they are really enjoying where they are located. They seem to have access to wifi most days. This has been nice because in the last two countries we had a very small amount of contact without it.

The difficult part of staying in this country is when it comes to telling others about Jesus. They are in a country where they cannot say a word about being a Christian or becoming a Christian. This where Matthew 5:16 comes into play. All they can do is let the love and truth of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit shine through their actions, the way they approach life, & on their faces. They have been blessed to be reaching out to people in ways that I will talk about in another post.

God can use anything and anyone to show people His love for them. I know many people where #1 is will see God working in their own lives as long as my daughter & her team are being living examples of Christ and being led by the Holy Spirit. They don't know what someone living there has prayed to God about. #1 and her team's actions may be the sign or way a person will know God is speaking to them.

After spreading the love of Jesus more freely in the previous countries on this 11 month, 11 country mission trip, it has been a challenge for #1 not being able to utter a word about God this time. But like every other Christian (including everyone reading this who is a follower of Christ) out there, our daughter and her team should be living their lives in such a way that people can't help but notice and be drawn to God shining through their lives.

The World Race is all about sharing the love of Jesus in many ways, you can learn more here. If you want to learn more about God's love for you and knowing Jesus check out this and this.
