Days 12 to 14: A Recap

Today’s Bible Verse
“Wisdom… is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others.” (James 3:17)

My laptop got overwhelmed with all the applications running so it conked out more than a week ago.

I went through every program, system file and application. I finally got it back to great working condition last night.

That’s the reason I was not able to blog in the past several days. However, I used my trusty digital voice recorder to make sure my thoughts during the past days are noted.

Day 12
My first baseball game: Nashville Sounds versus Oklahoma Redhawks. Thank you to the staff of Every Nation for the tickets!


Look at this pic. Do you think we represent Every Nation?


Day 13
The Every Nation staff prepared breakfast for us right before missionary training. It was so sweet of them!


Day 14
Here is a group photo of the missionary training class in Every Nation. They did a wonderful job in teaching us how to raise financial and prayer support.



What I learned during these days:
There is power in gratitude to heal us spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. I love being surrounded with people who are always grateful for everything that they are experiencing in life -- whether good or bad.

An attitude of gratitude opens up my heart to God, enabling me to see the world the way He intended it to be.

Learning about this made me excited to say thank you to all of the people I came across with. Staying in a place where culturally, people kinda look out for themselves a lot and not really for others -- this is very refreshing to do.
