Today I officially started back to work here at the Lighthouse!
I have been reflecting on "working" and have been reminded lately by the Lord that my life here in Brazil is not about how many hours I work or what I do exactly. I am here because God has called me to be here. First He has called me to be His child and to then His ambassador of LOVE to those whom He places in my life. It is about "WHO" I am and "WHOSE" I am.
Also, I have been reflecting lately on how Jesus was intimate with the Father and He only did what He saw the Father doing (John 5:19). In this season of my life, as I am fulfilling so many roles - as a wife, new mother, and a missionary - I desire to be like Jesus. I want to be intimate with my Father and do only as He is revealing and leading me to do. Much fruit will come out of this place of abiding in Him (John 15).
So, what are you up to?
At the moment, my actual tasks here at the Lighthouse Community Center are completely different than the past because I am now a mommy. (I love being a mommy by the way!) I am no longer able to lead a children's group several times a week, but I can tutor a little girl twice a week and will be starting back with this soon!
