That is what I know for sure. There is joy in sacrificing. I went to Equipping the Saints (see previous post) with Jeff, John and Jarrod and an amazing group of 20 from Savannah Christian Church. And I found out that through my sacrifice I received this consuming joy. While our intent was to go, serve, and give God all the glory - which we did - I found that God gave in return to me - His joy. My first mission trip and God made sure it would not be my last!!!
This is the container that we filled with 28,606 lbs. of clothing, linens, blankets, shoes, and school desk chairs. Jeff had the honor of putting the very last box in the container (someone got a picture - but not me, but when I get a copy it'll be here).
Get the picture!!!

We took a couple hours off and visited this amazing creation of God - the Natural Bridge.
More too come - gotta go cook dinner...
