If I asked your friends to describe you, what would they say? And if I asked you to describe yourself, would your answers match up with those of your friends? Consistency in character is certainly no easy feat; it is difficult to keep up one’s persona especially when there is no one watching. Pastor Nate Larkin lived a double life — despite a floundering marriage and a growing inclination to feed his porn addiction, he worked long and hard to protect the reputation that he so carefully built. He knew that the moment his scandal broke out, his ministry would be finished. Little did he know that the trials he was going through were opportunities to build up his character.

Walk Along Side…
“By one of those lovely God incidents, we have a missionary friend living there AND in the same city! He finds it very difficult on his own. He can now speak the language reasonable and also teaches English but as a Christian, it is very difficult to witness and one has to even be careful about emails and all writing. I am sure my friend will be pleased to contact my mentee, who seems to be really wanting to get right with God.
That has really made my day spending an hour or so getting that sorted before we set off for holidays. I do thank God (almost) every day for this door of opportunity for ministry that he has opened up for me.
Every Blessing in Him,
Have a Great Week ♥
