Can't believe we have reached the end of our winter tour! I still remember when we had to delay our departure due to the snow back in January, now we are one week away from going back to Willmar!
This tour has been a learning tour for all of us--Learning to love when we're unlovable, learning to be patient with each other, learning to be leaders, learning to reach out, learning to be humble, learning to lead others to Christ, learning to enjoy God's blessings, and learning to become the person God created each one of us to be.
None of us is perfect, but God used each one of us to remind and show others that we don't have to be perfect before God, and there's no guilt and shame before Him. Jesus died on the cross for us so we can have life, just as Romans 8:38-39 said, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." And because of that, we don't need to be perfect and we don't have to be afraid of making mistakes anymore. We have freedom to come before God and receive His love, even as imperfect human beings.
I am grateful for this long but meaningful tour. I learned so much about myself, my teammates and most importantly, God. Even though the winter tour is coming to an end, I know that we will remember this past 3 months and hopefully, remember how faithful and good our God is.
