Now that I'm through another year-fundraising campaign and have begun on this year's schedule, I've had some time to reflect on why and how this ministry stays close to my heart and keeps me motivated and humble, following Jesus in serving these leaders. On Monday night I met with the Latino Pastors Association and the previous Monday night I met with the pastors for training. Each time I come away with a deep sense of profound respect and admiration for the difficult conditions under which they serve and the amazing power of the spirit of Christ that motivates them. Every time I am tempted to pity myself or feel less than motivated, their steadfast, loving service of Christ comes as a loving rebuke to me, and an encouragement to continue steadfast in the service of Jesus. God uses them to teach and train me, even while I am teaching and training them! Thank you for your partnership! Here are some highlights from this year so far.
