Gary, Dave and Beth (my sister’s in-laws) came down Sunday for their annual medical mission. I went down on Monday to meet them and helped Mr. Gary with the interpretations. I had an awesome time!!!! I really enjoyed interpreting and making the patients feel comfortable with the process, but most of all, I enjoyed praying with them and demonstrating the love of Christ in a tangible way. I want to have a genuine heart for God and for helping people. Sometimes it feels like I’m here in this earth defending myself. Sometimes it feels lonely and cold. Not Monday. I think that’s been my best day here because of the atmosphere—I felt so free to pray for/with them and they seemed eager to receive. I definitely want to do it again. The hard part was leaving and going away again made me miss my family terribly.
