"Rejoice in the Lord, and again I say rejoice!" If there's anything that can be said as we end a Friday night, our first week of ministry, is this exact phrase. The Lord has richly and specifically answered our's and your prayers. He has totally moved in our hearts and in the hearts of those whom He has prepared for a long time. We just finished our evening devotion time and it was such a wonderful time of sharing. We dedicated this evening to encouragement of one another by individuals sharing about other people on the team who have encouraged them through their service this week. Everyone jumped right in and began to share how others had ministered to their spirits. Everyone kept sharing and sharing. For an hour we edified each other (the body) as we talked how the Lord has used others to teach us new lessons. It was truly a blessed time of fellowship and team bonding.
ACF Medical missions site.
Passion for Christ and compassion for Souls.
ACF is committed to meet the need for medical care among the world's poor with lasting solutions through excellence in medicine, patient care, and health education. We do this by mobilizing volunteers on one and two-week medical projects and by establishing and equipping permanent medical centers. It has been succeful this year because we have been able to treat over 800 patients in fortportal.
Today sums up the entire week well. God has brought our team through a lot this week that has really stretched us and allowed us to see the heaviness that fortportal contains, but through it brought our lives close together and to Him through joyful praise and laughter. Jessica, Grace and Cathy continue to bring the humor, in very unique ways...as only Eddie senior and our driver can do.
We have been truly blessed by the hearts of the people of fortportal. They have taught us so much. We have been encouraged by the words and service of our team members. God has been the center of all we do, and He has shown Himself faithful by keeping us healthy and allowing us private time to journal and study His word. So our quiet times have been preserved for His glory, which is a huge answer to prayer. It is becoming very clear that our quiet times are directly proportional to how much we are able to pour out to the people to whom we speak.
