Matthew 21:16 | NIV “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him.“Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “ ‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’ ?”
Today was an incredible day. After all the planing and we finally get to put our backs into the job. Today, we started cleaning and preparing Stronghold Cambodia for the ribbon cutting and dedication on the next day.
While cleaning, there was a time that I spent painting on the front porch. My eyes were drawn to the faces peeking in from the road. Small children, curious to see what was happening in their back yard. Later in the afternoon, Pastor Jessie’s two beautiful boys, Soloman and David were playing soccer in the front of the house. It started as two, then to three and were exponentially growing as the time passed. All I can think is, who will be the biggest voice for God in the adventures of Pastor Jesse and his family; Jessie or the children.
I believe that the kind eyes of another youth and safe place to play will draw children in. They may just come to play ball in the yard at first, but the question will come and Solomon and David will be excellent teachers. Like Matthew stated ‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’ ?”
I hope and pray for this incredible project called Stronghold Cambodia, and for all the team members in States and across the seas. As Stronghold focuses on teaching the Children, let us not forget the two greatest children that God placed here. May they continue to share Jesus with those small faces peeking from behind the gate, encouraging them and introducing them to Jesus Christ.
