Focus on the Future

Focus on the Future

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”
Philippians 3:13

What a year this has been! You probably agree with me that this has been a hallenging year. We have struggled since the beginning of the year with the COVID-19Pandemic. It has disrupted our lives and our plans drastically. Illions of people have been infected, thousands have died, and it has hurt the world economy deeply.

But as we finish this year, I want to encourage you to pray that next year 2021 will be a better year for all us.We need to focus on the future.We should not be talking about the things that we could not do because of the disruptions in our lives. I could mention a few, but then I will be talking about them, and it is exactly what we should not do.

Soon this year will be over, and we will have new challenges in the coming year. Let us focus on all the plans. Here are a few ideas that you could do:

  1. Read the whole Bible. Find an accountability partner that will help you to accomplish that goal.
  2. Start supporting a missionary. Pray for him/her, provide financial assistance, and encourage others to do so as well.
  3. Spent more quality time with your spouse, children, and family. They probably need it more than ever.
  4. Mentor / disciple a new believer. Trust me, your life will never be the same when you invest in others.

Thanks for your support and prayers for the staff, missionaries, board of directors and all the supporters of our ministry. We could not do it without you, and deeply appreciate it.

Blessings
