There was a Mardi Gras party at the hotel where we are staying. We did not attend.

The teenage girls in Doncillas went to the movies. The sponsorship of dorms is working well.

Today we were blessed to meet and have coffee with another pastor. This one was Derrick Smith pastor of Living Hope.

Vencedores received happy meals fro the team.

 

A significant and often overlooked way that we serve God is in our everyday tasks.

Martin Luther understood this when he wrote, “The maid who sweeps her kitchen is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays — not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps but because God loves clean floors. The Christian shoemaker does his Christian duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.” (Our daily Bread)

One of the truths I emphasize is that whatever the children have to do they need to do it as a labor of love for God. Too many of us think that our lives are boring or repetitive whereas that is true only if you are laboring for yourself or your boss.

When you labor for God it is a joy to be able to do something because you know it makes a difference.
