Joy from serving!

It's been very busy here the last week or so! I can't wait for Brother Scott or Kevin to get here. We sure could use the help. This morning we had a great day in Varazdin. We set up in a flea market and passed out John and Roman's and Gospel tracts. It was a great feeling being a light in the middle of all the darkness!

After Varazdin I ate a little then picked up 13 boys from the Gypsy village and we went to play soccer. I realized two things: one I'm completely out of shape; two I'm getting old. But none of that matters because those boys had a great time. I think they could have stayed there all day! I pray that they can see Jesus in me and that I can make a difference in their lives! Many of them come from broken homes and live in hell on earth. What a joy it is to serve our Lord and let Him love these kids through me. I don't understand why there are people that don't want to serve God! I have found no greater joy than to serve Him!

Dear Christian it is not a burden to serve Him, it is a JOY!

Amen it sure is a joy. I also don't understand why other Christians don't get involved with serving. They are too content filling an obligatory pew!

What a wonderful thing to serve Him with these boys. You don't always know how much it means to them, but I promise, you do have an impact. Kepp up the wonderful work and keep us informed. I love hearing what God is doing through you and your family!
