We tend to have a mindset these days that goes something like, “How much is enough? Just a little more!” The problem with this is we will never get there. We will always want a little more. This is rooted in a scarcity mindset and is so common that we often don’t even recognize the pattern in our thinking. What if we changed this mindset to, “There is enough.” If we can embrace this thinking even if we really don’t have enough in that moment, we can trust that if we are in God’s will He will provide. Because God is a God of abundance. He has more than enough at His command. For the Love of Missions encourages and embraces an abundance mindset. There is no need for competition in God’s Kingdom. Join us by taking a look at your mindset. Are you thinking you need a little more or that there is enough?
One of the beautiful things about empowering local leaders to disciple their communities is that it will look different for each local leader. We are pleased to partner with Sigo Vivo in their discipleship work to the homeless and addicted community in Guatemala City. They consistently see the hand of God in their work, and their tireless passion is an encouragement to all. They use space in the Por el Amor building once a week to engage in relationship with the homeless and addicted by playing games, eating lunch and learning from God’s word together.

Part of the wonder of Martin Luther King Jr. was his way of speaking and believing play and peace and freedom from oppression were possible. While he lived in a country that felt much like a battleground, he hoped for the playground for all involved. One of the recurring themes of For the Love of Missions is to view the hard places as playgrounds rather than battlegrounds. This is often a challenge as so much of what we see in hard places is rooted in violence and hatred. But if we try we can find the cooperation and teamwork also. I think Martin Luther King Jr. would encourage us to find space to work together, to celebrate our differences while still enjoying our similarities. Join us in prayer as we ask God to show us the playground more and more and to transforms battlegrounds to playgrounds.
We are filling up our July 7-14, 2018 Vision Trip. Is God calling you to go? Have you sent a pm or emailed us at firstname.lastname@example.org? Don’t wait and miss this opportunity for God to change your vision!
The women and children have struggled against the weather and not having enough space for everyone to be involved. A dedicated space has been set aside to become the new community center in Popabaj. This video shows the area that will be converted into space for the women to continue their relational and educational topics and for the children to be able to engage in their lessons without the weather interfering. We are expectant that God will build something beautiful from the foundation of the dedicated community center.
The first 11 students to receive For the Love of Missions scholarships are about to start their new school year. Each student was given the opportunity to find the best option for their family. For example, one family with a single mom needs her older children’s help to care for the younger children while she is working. A traditional school setting would make this impossible. The older children in this family were able to find an extension program that will work around their schedule, and they will be able to attend together which provides safety away from home. While the scholarships are for middle school, high school and college aged students, there will be students completing elementary grades through university classes. For the Love of Missions wanted to meet each student where they are and we are excited to see how they flourish from here.
