Missionary Monday - Great Friends

Galatians 6:2  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

One of the fabulous things about being a missionary is all the people you meet and the friends you make from around the world!  This is one of my favorite things about being a missionary, because I LOVE people!!  Last night one of our dear old (meaning - have known them awhile) friends stopped in at our church.  We call him Bouncing Bob! His wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy.  He and Randy had an encouraging visit helping to lift one another's burdens.  I received an email late last night from a friend far away with a Bible verse to encourage me today.  She wanted to be sure I had it for this morning.  Isn't it wonderful that we serve a God who knows exactly what and when we need something??!!  He helps us bear our burdens by sending others to grab the end that is dragging!!  Is there some missionary you know that could use some help "bearing" their burden?  Ask the Lord to show you how you can help!!

Amen Kelly, I think we get too busy with our own lives and its easy to forget our friends and those who could use encouragement. Thanks for the reminder.
