Stepping back to take a look.
A comment was made in one of our men's bible studies recently that calls me to take a step back and reflect.
One of our men (we'll call him Carlos) said this, "Of all the people who started out several years ago in our first months
of meeting in the park on Sunday morning, the members of my family are the only ones still here."
The observation is both honest and accurate and was made by an individual who has shown strong leadership
ability in the workplace and who is showing more and more the change of heart and the spiritual growth that one day soon will,
by God's gifts, make him a great mentor and leader in Christ's church. Carlos also revealed that the way he is growing spiritually
lately is affecting the way he deals with difficult people at work. "Before I used to fight fire with fire, but now God helps
me treat my coworkers with His love at work inside me. I have the love of Christ in me even when I know someone is working
The spirit of God is hand-crafting Carlos (and many others like him) into a strong man of faith who will continue
to lead in the church and in his community. Seeing God at work like this in Carlos' life gives so much hope for what He already
had planned for this community even before we came to join Him in starting the King of Kings Christian Church. Our God is
so much more than a good architect and we consider it a privilege to be able to step back and take a look at what He's been
doing, and it is good!
Please continue asking God to give good growth to His workers here in Mexico in the King of Kings Christian
Church and in your local church.
