Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Making thanksgiving abound

  • Published in Blog

 

For a while now I've been reading through Paul's epistles with a fresh outlook. It seems like every time I read, the heart of the letter makes me think "yes, I can identify with that" or "this isn't something strange that only we feel." That in itself is an encouragement but it's also making the scriptures feel more real every day.

Why didn't Paul go to Rome?

OK, well, maybe not.  Our missionary training at CIT was great but we don't now think we can solve all the cultural problems of the world. Actually, we feel the opposite of that: we, in ourselves, aren't adequate for the job.
