The Fields are White for Harvest
Keeping on Focus
A steadfast heart towards God can easily be lost when our focus becomes sidetracked on something other than our Rock, Jesus.
In Psalm 51:10 It says to create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a steadfast (or faithful) spirit with in me. The thing is there is only one faithful one. The song, “You oh Lord are the faithful one, faithful one, great is your name in all the earth….” How we need the faithfulness of God in our lives. How I long for more of it!
We’ve been working at a brother’s farm on a crop of corn and helping out with that. Right now the corn field is literally white on top as the bees are coming around fertilizing the flowers on top of the corn stalks. Harvest will be in about a month. Don’t think we’ll do much of it the future years because you don’t earn too much on the investment. And I can invest in a crop or I can invest in people. Instead of working to support the ministry at this time God is calling us to pour into the people of Nueva Guinea the love of Jesus. Some sow some reap but all share in the fruit of the harvest! So you can be part of the ministry and the fruit even if you can't be here physically.
At the farm we have been able to fellowship with many of the youth that go with us to help sow , weed, and fertilize. Teaching them that it is essential that they allow God to sow his word in their hearts and to weed out the flesh and sin that must be destroyed. The farm has also taught me what it is like for those who work here in Nueva Guinea. Many are farmers and its hard work. Carrying 5 gallon buckets of water back and forth to have water to work with over a ¼ mile stretch is hard work. And I got a small taste of what the average Nicaraguan goes through to make a days wage. Which for them is U$5.80 for the day!
Pray for us as we hope to raise up more disciples and disciple makers. Nicaraguan leaders capable of doing great things while following God’s heart!
