Volunteers

This is just a quick note to let you know that the time with the volunteers is going really well. I will try to post more info and pictures later on. Just keep praying for the us, the volunteers and the people they will be coming into contact with. Thanks again and God bless.
Now, I'd like to put a quote from 'Through the Gates of Splendor' by Elisabeth Elliot (a book about the 5 missionaries that were martyred by the Waorani). This is a book that I have been reading recently and it comes highly recommended.
This quote comes from Pete Fleming, who was one of the 5 guys, and is from a letter that he wrote shortly before sailing (don't we have it nice now, not having to sail!) to Ecuador. "Remember the last few verses of 1 Corinthians 3: 'For all things are yours...and you are Christ's; and Christ is God's.' Throughout all our personality we are God's, and since God has made our whole selves, there is great joy in realizing who is our Creator. This realization is to permeate every area and level of life. In appreciation of beauty, mountains, music, poetry, knowledge, people, science-even in the tang of an apple-God is there, to reflect the joy of His presence in the believer who will realize God's purposes in all things."
