This trip to Rwanda was an e3 Partners training trip for me. I wasn’t assigned to a team. I went to a different Mission point ever day. I had to discern where and how God could use me most effectively on each team. On our travel days, I was a shepherd and a mom. On the first day I was a coach and encourager to a first-timer. On the second day, I preached about the armor of God and I was a prayer warrior for a woman in need of deliverance from a drug addiction. By the way, I was told that on Friday this same woman came to the final discipleship meeting and said her dependence on the drug was completely gone and she’d been set free from it! On the third day I was an evangelist, sharing the Gospel with each person I met. I met a woman, my exact same age, who had survived the Genocide 15 yrs ago. I asked her if she knew God and she said she knew God because He spared her life during the Genocide. She told me her story of absolute terror. It’s too long to go in to right now. But she ended by saying that she knew God existed because there’s no other reason that she should have survived that time except for God’s divine protection. I told her that I was certain He had allowed her to live so that one day (Tuesday, June 2, 2009) I would arrive at her home and share the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ with her. She listened to my testimony and while I shared the Gospel using the evangecube. Both she and her husband and their neighbor prayed to receive Christ and were so grateful that we came to their home. On the fourth day, I met a girl who became blind 2 years ago and told us not to feel sorry for her because the joy of the Lord was her strength and He was her protector and her provider. She was the encourager that day! On the fifth day, we made bricks! On the sixth day I worked with kids and empowered them to do big things for God. Every day was different. Every day God gave me different opportunities to use my gifts and life experiences to minister to people and make a hopefully make a difference in their lives. God won’t always use us to share the Gospel with words, but our lives should continually share the Gospel without words. Some days I was so tired, I didn’t want to interact with people, I just wanted to go after the tasks and get them done and checked off the list. But God always gave me an extra measure of love and compassion and purpose for every single day so that I could truly walk humbly with Him and pour out my life for others as He would continually refill me.
