One of the challenges we face as we minister to the people around us is knowing how to respond to the many needs we see every day. There are women begging in the market, sick people in need of care, children who can’t attend school because of the financial burden, a neighbor who was in a motorcycle accident, death of a friend, and ministries that need help too.
One of the things that keeps coming up in my mind is that we must not look past these needs to the point of missing the people, but we must look through these needs to see that in the middle of that physical need is a spiritual need. When we start seeing what God sees in each situation, we help bring the will of God about as we help reach people with Christ and with care.
Just this week we saw that happening: Two people accepted Christ during a hospital visit! We connected with a new ministry with a unique tool for reaching children with the Gospel, and we are helping connect a 10-year-old girl with much needed medical care
