Travel Tips to Trust

It is interesting to observe how fears decrease with a fuller understanding of the COVID-19 disease.

Appearances

Appearances are not always as they seem. That reality resonated with Debbie this week. For a few days, she helped her parents, Eddie and Sandra Payne, sort through belongings. Within the year, they hope to move to a one-level dwelling more suited to their octogenarian health and lifestyle. She enjoyed the side benefit of new tales from their missionary career.

In recent years, much has been written about neuroplasticity in the brain. Gratitude and positive thinking grow neuron networks in the left prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that helps us seek solutions to problems. As we travel along seeding the hope that comes with the Gospel through Community Health Evangelism, we are learning the power of thanksgiving. Learn it with us to hold onto what is good, grow some neurons, and solve some problems. We bid all who read a daily, Happy Thanksgiving!

Unseen Power

Many apparent good works turn out to be ‘flashes-in-the-pan,’ as the light used with 19th century circa cameras. Enduring good works happen in ways that parallel electrical current lighting. Individual believers transformed by the Good News of Jesus Christ create currents that enlighten truth and power change.
