Honest Hearts--Thankful and Perplexed


speech bubble representing person 1 talkingAny more questions? It’s for free! (laughter)

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingYou’re a rascal! (laughter)

speech bubble representing person 5 talkingAre you coming back? Next year, or…?

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingIt’s possible. It’s possible. We don’t have anything locked in, but we didn’t know about this trip until a month ago either. If you need us, we have e-mail and telephone access. Also, if there’s any way we can serve you in any complex situation that comes up or if there’s a need for an emergency visit or you just need to pray together with us, we’re your family and we’re available anytime you want us. I’m sure you feel the same way.

speech bubble representing person 2 talkingThank you for visiting us. We will continue to extend to you whatever use we have and we will pray together for each other. God bless your family.

speech bubble representing person 6 talkingWell, I thank you also. I believe in your faith, the way you explained it to us, but, from my own point of view, I really have to be curious about some things I learn from somebody. I just want to be honest to my conscience and also to the teachings or the beliefs that come to me. But I really appreciate your explanation. I am thinking, contemplating and exploring more. But it’s not easy, you know? I don’t want to go into a certain thing without being honest to myself and to God. I told Scott, I have opposed the famous radical meetings and radical thinking, because I want to preach it, I want to do it first, and then down the line, let others do it just like, you know, a family.

I am in a church—I’m sharing my experience with you—which is not like the Church you are in now, but basically we all fear God. I think we have the same belief or faith in the Trinity and Jesus Christ as our Savior. But right now, I’m really…I’ll pray first, that the things that I learn from you guys and brothers—I call you brothers—I can inject it somehow and start doing it. I hope so. Because I believe in what you have said to us. I believe it, really. I understand the “why.” Why you are doing it is because you love Jesus, you want to serve God. The next question is “how?” That’s really the one bothering me. I don’t know what the right word to use is.

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingPerplexing, maybe?

speech bubble representing person 6 talkingYeah.

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingBut that’s okay. Again, if your heart is “Father, whatever You want, You should get. I have no idea what this means, but if there’s anything in this that I need to obey, then I will obey no matter what it costs me. I just don’t know what that is right now.” With that heart, God will unroll it right in front of us.

speech bubble representing person 6 talkingOur Master is Jesus not man.

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingYeah, right. Amen.

speech bubble representing person 6 talkingThat’s why in every ministry—I’m just telling myself—I also have had some sacrifices in the ministry; personal sacrifices and unjust experiences. I really thank God for you brothers and for having you here with us. I think that I’ve learned about “home church”…no, not “home church.” I don’t know how to call it! “Life with Jesus” or whatever?

speech bubble representing person 3 talkingThat’s a good thing to call it : )

speech bubble representing person 2 talkingFamily in Jesus…

speech bubble representing person 6 talkingI thought that “home church” was different from what I was thinking, but now it’s really different. But again, thank you. Thank you for your hearts to be here, to be with us. Thank you. I know that really we are one in Spirit and in one Body under the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you very much. And bless you. And may the work of your hands be blessed by God all the more and that it will grow. Thank you.
