“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but, fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.”
- Ephesians 2:19-20
Amazement and Grace are the only words that I can use to describe the last few days spent here in the mountains working diligently on the house for Kevin and his family. Pictures will tell a story, but our time here has revealed that the Lord is good and each of us now has a place we ourselves will call home here in El Salvador. Just as the verse above states, we are now fellow citizens united with the heart of Jesus and what He is accomplishing through the lives of these incredible people. They truly are some of the most humble and loving that I have ever met and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to come and see His light shine so brightly here.
We spent the better part of today putting the finishing touches on our portion of the surrounding structure of the home. Cinder-Block walls stacked on top of each other rising to the sky allowed us to complete each layer by being able to really see the whole project for what it is- a home for a family that will be a light for their community and every person they welcome into it moving forward.
The work will be completed in the next few weeks and we are each excited to see the finished project, but will never forget this chance to come to an unfamiliar place and leave it knowing that we are now united with our God family here in Christ Jesus.
Prayer: “Lord, thank You for these people and this place- they both are Beautiful and full of Your presence. Please continue to bless the work of Your servants here at Love & Hope and throughout El Salvador as they continue to open their doors and welcome foreigners in as family. Amen.”
