“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Chris is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11
Everyone will confess Jesus to be Lord, but many will not know him as their Lord…they will have lived their life as they chose and will thus pay the consequences in eternity, bowing down to Him, but not being able to be with Him. This makes my heart ache.
I want all to know of God and of sin and of Jesus who takes away that sin. I believe that the Lord is bringing refugees to America that they might be discipled and then sent out back to their country with the good news. That is why I have been hanging out with some refugees from Eritrea. I am just one person, but if many people step up and begin forming relationships with other refugees then this vision is possible!
The refugees that Tim, Keira and I have been talking with don’t really speak much English, so we are helping them learn. I also just started teaching them songs in English. One man, Polo knows a bit of guitar, and a good amount of English, so he and I have been talking the most. He translates for us so that we can communicate with the others.
I can’t wait to hang out more with this group. They are very kind people.
