We’re on this journey for the long haul. So, we have intentionally decided to master two things we believe to be foundational in our calling to Chiapas. “A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in a little thing is a big thing,” Hudson Taylor wisely observed. We want to be faithful in two “little things”: depending on God and cultivating trust and relationships.
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be expected.” (Luke 12:48, CSB) I had always thought the “much” Luke describes was money but over the past three days God had gently, and not-so-gently taught me that it meant so much more… Each of us are called to share what we have been given whether it is time, financial resources, or prayer. We are the ones who have been given and entrusted with much and that “much” is the Gospel message. It is love. It is faith. What will you give?
It is quite cold now in Tijuana and the migrants are not prepared nor is there enough food and shelter for them — we strive to help as possible and as donations arrive. As you are aware, there is a direct way to help with monetary donations through the IM website. Please pray — this is a complex, ever-changing situation, but so important to keep our eyes, hearts and hands focused on how we can serve these asylum seekers who are in dire need.
They both work in training, prevention and education as they learn the community needs and look for ways to emotionally and economically empower leaders in their communities.
We want to express our gratitude to each one of you who has prayed for our ministry and supported us financially to respond to God’s call to Chiapas. Thank you for journeying with us and helping us to be light and salt in this corner of the world!
