I'm Going to Rwanda

It has been quite a hectic few weeks for me. Aside from working full time, and other miscellaneous side projects, I've also committed to a missions trip to Rwanda.

I've never been on an international missions trip before, moreover, we'll be doing ministry primarily with kids... something I'm not quite used to. The only few times I've been able to work with children have been the times in a former homeless ministry, Co-Project, sometimes our friends would bring their kids and I'd be able to play games and have fun with them.

Over there, twash!

A team of ten people, including myself, from my church First Evangelical Free Church Fullerton, are helping facilitate a camp for orphans in Rwanda.

Coming Back to Ministry

For the past year or so, I've been praying to God to provide and open a way for me to do ministry, somehow. Within the past five months of moving to Fullerton, God's really shown me that these opportunities really do exist, even locally. I've been able to share the gospel a few times with new friends, and I've been blessed with amazing friends who have also been ministering to me.

So now, just coming back to a very intentional time to do ministry, I find myself praying more and more for His heavenly provision in all that my team and I do. Its been a humbling experience, moreover a daunting one as our departure is approaching really quickly in mid July. I'm getting a grasp once again of the work needed to do ministry and the part of it that is utterly relying on God to do his work.

So as I sit here, thinking through all the things I need to do, I can't help but feel peace that everything will fall into place. I just need to do my part.

I'm excited, elated, and enthralled about this, thanks for reading.
