Wow, how to tell you about an experience that is life-changing. I first walked with Christ in the Via de Cristo movement last year in April. It came at a time in my life where there were serious trails going on. That experience taught me one major thing – God loves me as I am and that I am perfect in His eyes. Not that I shouldn’t work to be better, but that He loves me in spite of myself.
This past weekend, I served – I will not go into the particulars because is anyone is interested I do not wish to spoil it for them – but what I will say is this – My weekend gave me the heart and eyes of Jesus, this past weekend gave me the hands of Jesus. I gained more satisfaction serving on a weekend, then I did from my going on my weekend.
I got little sleep, was on my feet for 18 hours a day and barely had time to take a shower, but know what, it was worth it. I have already signed up to serve again next year and am looking forward to whatever role I can play.
These weekends give you the important tools you need to enhance your walk with Christ. There is food, fellowship, study and prayer for 72 hours (there is sleep, if you aren’t serving) There are women or men (Men’s weekend only – except the pastors, of course) that will make sure that you want for nothing so that you can concentrate on the experience of your walk and not worry about the little things that tend to distract us for our learning.
If anyone is interested, please let us know and we will put you in touch with someone who can help you experience that face of Jesus as we have.
Always remember God Loves You And So Do I
