As I try to organize my thoughts so as to share them with others, I am feeling overwhelmed. So much to do – catching up after 10 days without media access. 200 emails at home, almost that many at work. Trying to get on top of my workload at the office. And stealing a few minutes here and there to read some fave blog posts and tweets.
As I read a post by Unshakable Hope, written by Bill’s daughter, Lauren (please read http://unshakablehope.wordpress.com/2013/08/19/pacing-your-productivity/) I caught myself thinking in terms of “doing something” about the plight of the people I briefly met and quickly came to love in my week on the Island.
I won’t rush into writing about this amazing experience – breathtaking scenery, camping (something I now KNOW is not for me!), time spent with women hungry for God and longing for healing for their families. Laughing with children who delighted in the lavish love and Bible stories and good food. A rich experience of God’s love in action!
God is at work among the First Nation people we visited; but it is a heavy spiritual battle. The problems are big and complex. But nothing is impossible for God and we are praying for an outpouring of Holy Spirit power. And revival.
