Choosing Christ…

March 25, 2008

I am sitting here reflecting on my relationship with Christ and I had such a great time doing so that I wanted to share a little about what I reflected on. First of all being here in Gulu is so great because I know that it’s God’s will for my life at this point in time. I know full well that He has called me here for a purpose. When I was in Kampala almost  two years ago I really felt a pull to stay in Uganda longer, but I didn’t follow that leading and instead chose my own route. The time after that up until I came back here 5 months ago I still really felt that pull that I needed to be back in Uganda. I knew that God had something for me here. I was reflecting on those things. I am learning so much about who God is and who I am in Christ. I am loving how much knowledge I am gaining from the wise men and women of God that are surrounding me. I am also growing emotionally. I am healing and renewing my mind through God’s word and through spending time alone with Him. I would challenge all of you reading this to spend time with God, as much as you can. I have really felt that God has been taking my past attitudes and feelings and molding them and shaping them more into what He would want them to be rather than what I would want them to be. Again, I challenge you to put God’s will before yours (trust me it’s hard but so so worth it). I am so glad that Christ has given me a peace about a lot of things in my life. The way that I am dealing with life’s ups and downs really show me that He is doing a mighty work in my life. I praise Him for that. The way that I respond to things that I don’t expect or may not have thought about,
God has allowed me to deal with them full of grace and understanding. Again, I praise Him for that.

I wanted to share with you these things in hopes that you may be encouraged to follow Christ and to submit your life and everything you say and do to Him. He knows best. One big thing for me lately is being totally satisfied and content with where God has me. It is an amazing thing when you find your contentment in Christ and nowhere else. I haven’t felt that in a long while. I used to put my contentment in other things and other people. But the freeing thing is putting yourself in a position where you find your completely satisfied in your walk with Christ and nothing else can compare to that.

Praise God for His discipline, love, truth, and the wisdom that He grants to those who submit.

“But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.  Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” 1 Timothy 6:11,12.

If we put our hope in Christ we will have a joy filled God honoring life. Choose Christ that you may live…

Lord bless you all.

It’s been a while…

March 13, 2008
Dear family and friends,
First of all let me apologize for not keeping you informed about what has been going on the last month or so. I ended my orientation here so that put a little bit more into my daily and weekly schedule. Youth for Truth is going very well. We are visiting 2 schools a week with follow-up to each of these schools several days after we minister there. God is using me in this ministry as well as the other pastors that I visit the schools with. It’s quite the harvest here and people are hungry for truth and for growing in their walk with Christ. So praise Jesus for that!!
The other missionary on our team, Angie, was broken into two weeks ago. The thiefs broke a bar off from her window and climbed in WHILE SHE WAS HOME!!! It was about 1 am so she was asleep. They took a few things one being her laptop. The laptop itself is replaceable but the information inside was precious. She had been working on a lot of language material for ACTION Gulu, so she will have to start some of that from scratch again. Thankfully she was not harmed in any way. The people have said that thiefs here usually kill when they rob a house. So praise God for His protection over Angie’s life! God isn’t done using her yet for sure!
Also, my internet has been down here for the last 11 days so emailing and blogging had pretty much come to a halt because of that. Internet is back on and working well now though (knocks on wood).
I had a friend named Josh from the US come visit. He is my youth pastors older brother. Most of you know Isaac Rattin and his brother Josh. Josh and his wife are thinking of becoming full-time missionaries and are looking into where they would want to serve. He wanted to come and check out ACTION Gulu and see what the ministry is like here. It was so encouraging to see him and spend a day with him. It was a quick visit but well worth it! Please pray for Josh and his wife Abby as they pursue God’s will for their future.
I pray daily for you all. I am so thankful that He has given me such a strong supporting church and family. I love you all and will write again soon. I promise 🙂
