To live by faith is one of the most difficult ways of living, it is to go forward without knowing what will happen to us, it is to go through processes believing that any problem has a solution, it is to believe that God is working even though it seems that He is silent, it is to have the hope that God is in control in the midst of trials. The Bible teaches us to adopt this lifestyle because without faith it is impossible to please God.
One of the texts by which God spoke to our hearts to start the year was Matthew 17:20.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Believing that for God nothing is impossible, together with the young people of Whitworth we transmitted this message to the people of the villages, to each patient who attended, the message was clear, that despite the trials, the sickness, and the poverty, God never loses control, He is there for His children and for those who love Him.
We worked two days at the Sarita y Lámpara school, we painted some of the classrooms, took the weight and height of the children, created profiles of the students, and measured shoe sizes.
Tameja which recently is the farthest village in the area, took us almost 2 hours to get to the village due to the bad road conditions, more than once we got stuck with the cars because they did not pass the hill due to the much mud formed, it was a real challenge to reach the village, but God had a purpose for each of the people because we conducted clinics for 3 days, we prayed for them and although we found many diseases both stomach and virals, each patient received medicine and treatment to relieve their pain.
Then we went two days to the San Carlos village and saw the love with which the people were waiting for us, the need is big but when we are willing to be used by God, He works miracles on people. In San Carlos, we also conducted medical clinics, prayed for the people, did activities with children, and delivered medical treatments.
We finished our trip in Puerto Barrios and we made another trip only this time to the west of the country, two days in a village called El Cerro, we found very kind, happy and grateful people with us for the help given, that filled our hearts with satisfaction and once again we can say that it is worth serving God and it is worth helping those in need.
We want to make a special thanks to the young people of Whitworth who dedicated their time, their talent, and their gifts to bless the people of our country, we are sure that God will reward the effort of each one of them dedicated in this time.
Miracles depend on 3 important factors: God’s power, God’s perfect plan, and faith.
Miracles happen every day, they are small details that happen in our lives, and we must be attentive to them to be able to see them, although they seem invisible, they are there, God gives them to us every day, we just must have faith.
