Where is Jesus?

7 Jul

Where's WaldoWhen my kids were younger there was a popular game called “Where’s Waldo?” which had very detailed pictures and you had to find “Waldo” in the midst of the busyness. That got me to thinking about “Where’s Jesus?” Our lives are so busy with so many distractions that sometimes I go through the whole day and miss seeing Him. But when I really think about it He was in many places, I just didn’t see Him.

He was on the corner in downtown York, a poor looking older man who needed something to eat. He was the person that used to come into my office that didn’t have the best hygiene and needed a lot of my time. He was the friend who needed me to sit with him while he struggled with the brokeness of his marriage.

He is also in Sendafa, Ethiopia. He is there in the clinic needing to have cataracts removed. He is in the small mud walled and floor hut of the HIV patient who is appreciative for any small thing we are able to provide. Living Word has a team in Ethiopia right now ministering to many who look just like Jesus. Please pray for them as they give of themselves to touch the others lives. While you’re at it you might want to open your eyes and see if Jesus is near you right now.

Taking the love of Jesus to the world is the purpose of the Global Ministry at Living Word. For over 25 years we have supported people who have gone to the field, sent short term teams to minister to others, provided the resources to complete many worthwhile projects and encouraged those who are led by God to go.  In addition to the new website and blog we also have a new logo highlighting the world we serve.

At Living Word we have established our priorities around:

  1. God’s Plan
  2. People
  3. Programs
  4. Property/Projects

This blog will be focusing on the same priorities as they relate to Global Ministry.  There will be posts related to where and how God’s Plan is working around the world.  We will highlight some of the People who we partner with in various locations, The Programs that we support will be introduced and frequently updated.  It will discuss the various Projects that have participated in that have transformed and blessed many.

I invite you to join us on this journey of Global Ministry at Living Word Community Church.  It is an exciting and fulfilling expedition that I know you will enjoy.
