The gathering and fellowship with people we met on Moorea. Through the translated words, the passion and compassion, the joys and struggles of sharing and showing Jesus to others. Also seeing a desire to learn more about God’s word.
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. – Phillipians 1: 9-11
· Singing at the church surrounded by the full voices praising Jesus. Though I did not understand many of the words, the depth of the praise was stirring in being with other believers. Also sharing a time of music and fellowship with a local family. Very memorable and encouraging worship times.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. – John 4:23
· It was incredible seeing and hiking the mountains and swimming in the blue waters that God has created. Thinking of Him setting all this in motion for His glory and being able visit another place of His creation with family, old friends and making new friends in Tahiti.
Let heaven celebrate! Let the earth rejoice!
Let the sea and everything in it roar!
Let the countryside and everything in it celebrate!
Then all the trees of the forest too
will shout out joyfully – Psalm 96: 11-12
