Joy In Worship
Hey Fairview Family, this is Ricky checking in. After a long day of travel, we’ve made it to the compound in Anse a Pitre. It’s been a year since I’ve been to this compound, and the amount of growth I see in this place is such a blessing. Not only have more buildings been finished, but the people of the area have also been shaped by the love we have shown. We had the privilege to sit in on a church service this morning that took place in a building we broke ground on last year. Singing, clapping, hollering, and beating on drums, these people love Jesus, and witnessing such praise without abandon is a humbling and inspiring experience. It’s only our first day here, but I already have such high hopes for this compound and the people around it. Building new churches and houses, facilitating bible school for the children, teaching English to the adults, or even just throwing a ball around with the locals, everything we do for these people is a reflection of God’s love. Paul writes in 1st Corinthians, “Be Strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is useless.” Seeing and hearing the people of Anse a Pitre praise the lord brings me such joy, and I pray that through the spread of the word and love of Christ that we may fill that church and many others like it.
