The students on this trip wanted to go and love on those less fortunate. They could have easily backed out, or done something more self centered...but they didn't! There have been people on TV and Internet for weeks talking about the Zika Virus, and these youth were serious about their commitment to this trip, or they would not have gotten on the plane.
I can not wait to see them, loving (even if it's through pictutes ) on people (especially children). Friday this team travels to build a home for a family with nothing!
Please keep this team in your prayers!
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.
