At this time 3 days from now, we'll be in the Miami airport enduring our 7-1/2 hour layover and preparing for a new adventure.  Many would say that the greatest moment in a Christian's life is the moment they accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  I would contend that there may be several moments in a Christian's life that are equally as great.  The moment you decide that's it's really not all about you and the purpose for which you walk this earth has not been fulfilled.  The moment you begin to fully understand that to have the heart of Jesus and the mind of Jesus, means you have to completely die to yourself.  And because of this you begin to realize that you don't do enough for others.

Like many in our Ecuador mission group, I have never been outside of the USA except for the occasional cruise.  While I was packing last night, Regina asked me if I was scared of afraid.  Yes, I said.  I'm afraid I will forget and leave something behind that I need, but not about the trip.  When we began planning and searching for an area that we could focus on as a group, I knew in my heart that I would do it at all costs.  It did not matter what, I was immediately going to say yes.  Not to be selfish, but my prayer is that God will change me through my service.  That He will allow me to experience the fullness of His Joy through watching others be blessed.

To the other 13 members of the mission group:  I APPLAUD your courage and your willingness to do God's work.  I'm praying that this experience will be like none other in your lives and that you will bring the momentum of God's spirit back with you.

May he pour out His spirit upon the Ecuador Mission group.

Joshua
