How does one begin to ‘count ones blessings?’
By thinking of a fall filled with colour and blue skies and sun -
By realizing that the Groups of Hope program is growing and that women and men are being blessed by participating in it: in Bolivia, in Colombia, in India and in Canada.
Tonight I heard of someone in Africa who is interested in talking to me about the program – who sees potential for using it in her ministry.
In a little over a week’s time I will fly into the north to mentor the program in a northern native community, where there are several leaders who have a vision of using the program to bring hope to the hurting.
The Handbook has been translated into Spanish and I am eagerly awaiting final word that it is in print and ready to put into the hands of those who are eager to read it and to use it in ministry.
For these and many other blessings – I give thanks to a God of Hope. the theme verse for the Groups of Hope comes to mind:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
