Here, Hear!

Yes, we are still here, in San Diego, CA.  And we've had a lot to hear and say to other missionary folks and interested parties.  (Don't ask where I come up with my blog titles...sometimes they just stick in my head!)  Coincidently, the phrase, "Hear, hear!" (shortened from, "Hear him, hear him!") comes from 18th century British parliament, shouted to agree with the speaker.

So, moving on... we just ended the focus on mission week at Shadow Mountain Community Church.  We have been pleasantly surprised at the missionaries and contacts we've met. 

As most of you know, we began a mission organization due to an interesting set of circumstances that originated in Andahuyalas, Peru over 3 years ago.  (You can read about it on our website if you don't know the story:  Needless to say, the journey has been full of learning, doing, waiting, giving up, gaining, and praying. 

As Believer's Bridge grows, we see God directing the steps.  The missions festival provided some new opportunities to connect with other like-minded people who may or may not work with Believer's Bridge in some capacity.  There's nothing quite like accepting God's direction in your life and doing it.  The benefits bring eternal fulfillment, even if some of the moments along the way get bumpy.

By focusing back on the reason Believer's Bridge started, it helps Bill and I continue moving forward.  We hope to help others see the same: that there are people in other areas of the world who hunger for Biblical teaching, but as of yet do not have it. 

Whatever, and wherever your position in life right now, don't waste it.  I came across an interesting quote by Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do."  Let that sink in for a little bit.  Then chew on it, savor it, then let the reality of the words hit you hard.

We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.  Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.  But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.  I John 2:3-6

Here are a few photos of our display from the mission festival.  Enjoy!

PS- We still need financial support for us to operate Believer's Bridge in a full-time capacity...  ;-)
