Remember The Poor

Remember The Poor

“All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.”
                                                    Galatians 2:10

The words of Paul as he and Barnabas depart from Peter, James and John to begin the ministry to the Gentiles, resonate strongly  in my head tonight.

Mickey and I could not leave Serenje today for Chitambo because there was no diesel in the area and tonight there are no lights in town.  The water will soon be gone with no electricity.  However, for the multitudes of outlying villages it is always like this.  And there are even greater challenges than these for them every day.

It was good for me to be reminded in my study tonight that caring for the poor is a foundational expression of our faith.  May we never, ever forget that.

Blessings from Africa,

    I am so guilty of taking all of those things for granted! I am picturing Mickey and you in
    the room without electricity, I guess bedtime will be early! Be sure and fill your bucket with water! My prayers are with you!!
