God's Call - Our Actions

 "God sets the lonely in families, " Psalms 68:6.

Experiencing God's Fulfillment 

Recess at school turned into a party in celebration of the Jordanian Mother's Day, 21-03, our March 21st.

Watching the children enjoy the amazing candles on the cake started the celebration. 

 Seeing the children's excitement and hearing the shouts of "Happy Mother's Day" is a joy seared into my memory.

There are three other mothers involved at the school.

With one of the students taking a picture of me in the scarf that was the Mother's Day gift to me, it was not long before others joined in the "photo opt."

My joy of  celebrating  Mother's Day filled with children.








Joy of the Lord is Our Strength

"..This day is holy to our Lord,...for the joy of the Lord is our strength."  Nehemiah 8:10.

As I go on to the next assignment God has prepared for me.  My heart is filled with joy having been a part of the school for Syrian Refugee Children. 

I treasure the love, help and friendship experienced during my months in Mafraq, Jordan.

It was a joy to meet so many people living out Paul's statement in Galatians 5:6,
 "...the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love."

       Pray for Peace in the Middle East!
