We Won't Soon Forget

After a fun filled day of amazing sports, we went to celebrate the Chinese New Year at the IBLP office. We had an enjoyable time eatting the New Year's food. All of the meat and vegtables were cooked in a pot , somthing like a crock pot. And after it was cooked we ate it with our sauce and rice.

After singing a couple songs, we had a sharing time, which was very exciting. Many testimonies were given. Some about God working in their lives and hearts in the trip, God giving them purpose for being in the trip, and how God has used different things to teach us. It's amazing to think back on these past few weeks to see how God has worked in each and every life. I am looking forward to seeing Him work during the rest of the trip.

I have realized that though we came to minister to others, we in turn have been ministered to more. With each situation, God has been faithful and taught us how to overcome it. And with His grace we have. God has worked in our lives and taught us new and exciting things. Things which we won't soon forget.

1 Thes. 1:3
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

Ephes. 3:20-21
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

It never ceases to amaze me how when we teach and share God's Word and pray for other lives to be blessed and impacted, God grants to the humble teacher a HUGE blessing as well. You expressed it beautifully in your post.
