The verse says, “Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” (2 Tim.2:3) As Christians, we are made new creations by the Lord Jesus and we must separate from the old life as the Spirit of Christ directs. It’s comparable to a real life soldier and how he joins and serves. As a missionary we face many challenges in our line of duty. In all circumstances we trust the Lord to get us through so God can get the Glory.
We’re starting our 9th week in Costa Rica studying Spanish to be fully equiped for our mission field. We have faced a few trials this past week. We have had the axle caps stolen from our truck. The volcano that is spewing ash has caused my wife to develop a kind of bronchitis. We got help from an American doctor that serves the students at the Language Institute. He prescribed for my wife an inhaler and two other medications. The recovery will take about three weeks, but she is a trooper and still studying and attending classes. We’re still praying daily for the funds to keep us here for another five weeks. For now, we’re walking by faith in the spirit of 2 Timothy 2:3.Get Involved
