Costa Rica End of Day 1

Good evening from the field,

We always think that the purpose of a missions trip is to reach into the hearts and souls of the people that are in the far flung expanses of the earth.  To help them find a new place of peace or the face of God. Ironically these desires for earth changing moments must first happen in us, the missionaries.  Today, fighting to satisfy an unquenchable thirst for comfort and understanding of the world that exist just three hours away from our homes, the September 2011 Celebration Missions Team gained perspective on how fortunate we truly are.

God has sent us into this world to make disciples of the nations but we learned today that we first must die to all things that are promote self.  Once we are truly dead in our understandings, desires, abilities that is when God will use us.  Our goal on this trip is to share the love of Christ with everyone that we come into contact with.  After today, we are now positioned to do so.
