Things are going well here. I think I’m starting to move away from the past a bit…
I was able to go out with the missionaries.
It’s interesting to see people who are just finding out about the Church, about God. You know they’re starting a journey, one way or the other… You know their lives are about to change — their eyes are about to open up, and they will see the world and see themselves in a very different way… and you know that if they are strong, if they do their best, they will be totally transformed from what they were.
And you know that if they don’t continue in the journey… they will fall back to their starting point… and become like others again, lost in the rush of life, not quite sure where they are going.
It’s like… these missionaries are going around giving wings to people, giving them the chance to fly.
It’s exciting to see it again…
We need to pray for these new people, that they will have the patience and trust in God to wait for the answers to their prayers, and wait for their faith to grow strong and bear sweet fruits.
Happiness and peace can be obtained. Love can be found. Freedom is within reach. And hope is the vehicle to a better life.
I’m glad I’m still alive, to experience this world a little longer. This is a lifetime of opportunity; every day, even every minute, we have the chance to do something great.
Read this, any visitors to this page: the story of a dead man and his dead country, showing the way to life:
God gave us a new, living church, and he did it to bless this world. This Book is the banner of that Church. Find it. Search it out in your own language, and read it.
And look back, decades later, on the miracle that took place when you did so.
