Thankful for the Lord is good!

Psalms 100, also known as The Thanksgiving Psalm, holds a special place in the hearts of many. It opens by encouraging us to offer our thanks and praise to God. Growing up in Guatemala, a developing country, I have seen firsthand the struggles of poverty. During a mission trip I led, one of my team members expressed a thought that has stayed with me: “I don’t understand how people who are poor can worship God.” 

However, this is a common misconception. Despite the difficulties we may face, we can still be grateful. It may not be easy, but through the words of His scripture, we are reminded that God’s faithfulness endures forever. Therefore, we can always offer thanks and praise no matter what we may be going through. Even if we don’t always understand His ways, we can trust that “His love endures forever.” By expressing gratitude, we draw closer to Him and find greater fulfillment.

I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to work alongside Global One80. Having served in various parts of the world for over two decades, I am thrilled to embark on my new journey with Edge One80. Through my new role at Edge One80, I will coordinate, send, and lead teams to the countries Global One80 serves, assisting those expanding the Kingdom of God on earth.
