In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed being with my church family, on SONday. And, mentioned having communion! :)
Something I didn't mention, was the fact that we considered that day our Mission Sunday.
Normally, we would have a missionary join us. However, last Sunday, this was a little different.
The couple who joined us, are considered missionaries of a sort. They are considered Member Care Coordinators with Fellowship International.
It was so nice to have seen information on what they do. And, learn about how they work for God.
They actually live here in Windsor, ON, Canada. And, in their past, the husband pastored a church family.
Unlike missionaries, they do not go and live somewhere else in the world. Instead, they go visit missionaries, in various places in the world.
By doing so, they offer encouragement to those, who are doing work for God.
To me, this is wonderful.
After all, most missionaries from Canada, are no longer living in Canada. And, need support and encouragement.
Not just financially, but also to give peace to all who have changed their lives, to assist others around the world, in coming to Christ.
Thinking of the peace God offers, made me think about Hebrews 13:20-21, "Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
That peace that comes from God, is the peace that helps people through situations and trials in life. And, makes those of us trusting in Him, perfect to do His will.
At least, for me. Hopefully, for you, also.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
