My heart’s desire is to be a part of a church planting team in Paraguay, South America. But what is at the heart of church planting? Sharing the truth of who God is and what Christ has done to offer all mankind new life. The center of my desire is and must always be the heart of church planting – God Himself. Often I think the many challenges, mundane days, frustrating situations, and embarrassing cultural blunders will be too much for me. Then I realize, they will be if I’m not focused on God. He has blessed me to no end through Christ. He has given me His Holy Spirit know Him. He has given me loving, supportive, and encouraging Christian friends to partner with me. He asks me now to live in obedience and faith to Him. The real work of saving souls – is His. No challenges in church planting will take our God by surprise or be to great for Him to handle. God is building His church around the world and I am so excited He wants to use us in the process. It is my privilege to share this journey with all of you. Right now I can hardly imagine the joy of being part of a budding body of new believers in Paraguay and seeing God transform their lives!
