Had a chance this past weekend to visit with our friends from the mission in Haiti.Â In addition, we met overÂ 25 other people who run, support or are the missionaries in many other countries along with people who run Bible Colleges and write the Bible in differentÂ languages.Â Â Â It is amazing to see these people so full of laughter and joy.Â Â They are happy in their circumstances.Â Let me say that again, they are happy in their circumstances and some are pretty rough.Â Â Contrast that to how we can get upset at just the slightest tilt of our world.Â Â Today, I listened to aÂ couple of storiesÂ of health turning bad and the unknowns that come with that as well as the heart aches of people losing people.Â Â Terrible circumstances andÂ how do your find contentment in these conditions?Â As I consider the options,Â contentment must beÂ a state of being , not circumstantial.Â I can only think of one way to exist in order to experience contentment no matter the circumstances.Â Â In Christ.Â Philippians 4: 11-13Â Knowing that God’s plan was to offer Himself as a sacrifice for my sin; knowing that He has paid the price; knowing that existence in Him is salvation -offers contentment.Â What about others?Â I am certain of my salvation, what about others?Â People I don’t know and people I do know, what about them?Â All these missionaries are working to spread the Good News!Â On behalf of you and me to those who’s hearts the Spirit is preparing.Â WeÂ support their efforts in many ways withÂ Â prayer, money and getting to know them personally.Â Â Take some time if you haven’t to get to know these servants ofÂ The Most High God.
We're here to raise $100,000 for Haiti. Contribute to us and help provide clean water, medical care and food for the people of Haiti, still struggling more than a year after the earthquake. Join THREE Marks and pledge to support them as they conquer 13.1 miles each running the OneAmerica Mini Marathon.
