Barnabas Bridge – Sunday August 24 2014 – Another aspect of ministry
Ok, so not everything in ministry is preaching, prayer, and praise. Sometimes you just ‘gotta’ eat. And Romanians know how to do this! The good thing about travelling in the warmer seasons is the opportunity to enjoy meals outside. Our friends bless us with kindness and great feasts. The reason Doug runs so many races before and after our mission trips is to compensate for the extensive Romanian and Hungarian nutritional treats he indulges in while ‘being a missionary’! It really is amazing: no matter how difficult life is, those whom we visit make every effort to feed us well. They take the ministry of hospitality seriously and dispense it with joy. And over leisurely meals shared in the garden we experience the depth of true Christian fellowship. We learn and laugh much. We share our lives. We rejoice in the good gifts God gives. We hear of their challenges and struggles. We hope and pray for a better future for their children. It is a time to reassure our hosts that God’s people half way around the world care and pray. We are strengthened and humbled. This is the best work God can give us! Join us on a future visit and experience it for yourself.
