How far would you go to help someone?

Would you go next door?  Would you go across the street?  Would you go across the country?  Would you go across the ocean?

As I hiked into the remote village of Huk Huk Yung, I was met by puzzled stares from the villagers.  Even my smile and my offer to extend candy to the children was not immediately recognized and received.

My son, Kody, and I recently had the privilege of going to the Philippines on a short-term mission trip.  We visited villages high in the mountains of northern Luzon.  There we met people that had no electricity or running water.  We couldn’t give them these things, but we did share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them.

Since there was no church and no pastor to help them know about God’s love for them, we shared the story of Jesus Christ dying on the cross to save them.

We had the help of interpreters, local guides and puppets to help illustrate the gospel message.

They were extremely grateful to us for what we shared with them.  By the time we left, they were smiling and expressing thanks for our message which we had brought.

Will you take the goodness that God has given you and share it with others?  Someone needs your help today.

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:19-20
