Sometimes we have a misconception that God needs us to do something for Him. He definitely tells us to love others as we love ourselves and to make disciples. But He is already working and moving in all communities and nations before we can even get there. We make room for God to move in our lives when we humble ourselves to the idea that we are not responsible for bringing God to others because He is already engaged in their lives and communities, perhaps in unnoticed ways. When we pause to ask Him how He is working, we are often amazed to see how He has already been revealing Himself. For the Love of Missions continues to practice the discipline of learning where God is moving and joining Him there. It has been so encouraging to see fruit of that in our community development projects in both the Guatemala City garbage dump community and Popabaj. We have not had to come with a plan or an agenda, other than to love, and God continues to open the doors for us to join in His work of poverty alleviation and discipleship.

Apple Chase 5K – October 28, 2017 – 8:30-11:00 am
Join us in lifting up Javier, his family and his business in prayer. Javier recently had surgery to remove a kidney after doctors found a cancerous tumor. Praise God that the cancer was contained and no additional treatment was needed. But his recovery and a difficult economic season has left him discouraged. While For the Love of Missions has provided a business loan to Javier, we also consider him, his family and staff For the Love family and know that God can provide and heal as we pray.
We are so excited for our first annual FTL 5K on October 28th. If you or someone you know like to run/walk, come on out and join us in Hoschton, GA. Race begins at 8:30 am with with some great giveaways and a supper soft T-shirt. We also have a place where you can give a donation to help us raise precious funds for our school scholarships and mentoring program. Please visit http://www.runsignup.com/ftl5k to register or donate. Thank you so much for your support!!
In some ministry circles, business can be thought of the opposite of ministry or kingdom work. For the Love of Missions sees that business and economic development can actually be important vehicles in poverty alleviation. As businesses grow, incomes and opportunities increase, which positively impacts material poverty. But more than that For the Love of Missions embraces business as a vehicle for relationship which is a key component in all poverty alleviation. Whether it is a business in the United States or in Guatemala, For the Love of Missions believes there can be true kingdom building work done through it. We have invested in Javier’s business in Guatemala but we are also looking for businesses who wish to invest in God’s work in Guatemala. For the Love of Missions is looking for one-time sponsorship of our Fall 5K in addition to ongoing monthly support.
