Count It All Joy

[For those reading this who aren’t on our regular ministry email update list, here is an excerpt from the opening paragraph of that update that was sent last night.]



March has been an amazing month of ministry!  And while great things are happening in our journey with Jesus, guess what we can expect?  Trials!

As you can see in the picture above, something is missing.  Glass!  Yes, we went to order new glasses for three of us who are struggling to see clearly, and when we stopped for lunch with our van parked in a Walmart parking lot (we needed something there too), someone broke this window, climbed in and helped themselves to about $90 worth of groceries and a nice pair of jumper cables.  Our insurance should cover all but about $80 worth of the damaged glass.  The groceries and jumper cables are an offering to someone unknown to us.  I wish I had put a gospel tract in the bag!  A glass replacement shop here in San Juan will hopefully fix it by this Saturday or next Monday (the glass has to be ordered).

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.  And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”  ~ James 1:2-4 (ESV)
