It’s sunny and warm on our third day of missions work in Romania. We are starting to find some pattern and flow to our days as we become more used to what we are doing, but there are still challenges.
Love is our theme today as we work with gypsy children who are dirty, unruly, and selfish. They don’t listen well and we don’t speak the same language. How do I teach love to these people? I can’t. Lord, I need your help. Whether they hear or understand the lesson today, help me show your love to them. Sometimes I wonder who God is doing the greater work in; is it me or the children?
What a wonderful opportunity to show God’s love. It’s not through my words or a lesson, but through my actions. It is an honor to love these children as I have been loved by my Lord.
