We came to the end of our study of How God Grows Faith by looking at pivotal circumstances. Lois came and talked about her mission trip to Nicaragua and how that became a pivotal moment of faith. The Book of James tells us that even challenging circumstances can be growth points for us.
The Waters of Blessing trips are working to bring clean water to “villages” in that country. How can clean water be a mission for Christ. While there a many analogies in the Bible connecting water and Christianity, clean water gives and sustains life. It removes many potential illnesses. It takes away many fears.
That same Sunday, we held our annual Compassion Child Sunday that benefits Wadeline, our child in Haiti. I read a letter from her pastor telling about their village, the influence of the church and Compassion Center. And then he said the number one need in his village is clean water. Really! Water?
For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward. Mark 9:41
hat’s what I meant to add last Sunday.
