Today I was looking through Instagram and starting crying (not hard for me to do) as I saw post after post from our CITers (CompassionCorp in Training Students) that served with CPR-3 this summer. God used them in mighty ways… but I think even more than that, He work “in them”.
Check out these words from one of them:
“Sometimes God calls us to far and uncomfortable place and we’re not sure why. Spending five weeks in Haiti is probably the craziest and best thing I’ve ever decided to do. You can tell me I’m brave, you can tell me I’m strong. You can pat me on the back and say, “It’s great what you’re doing. Way to go.” But the truth is, I am not really very brave; I am not really very strong; and I am not doing anything spectacular. I am not bringing hope to Haiti, I am not bringing them Jesus. I am simply doing what God has called me to do as a person who follows Him.
He said to feed his sheep and He said to care for ‘the least of these,’ so that’s what I’m doing, with the help of a lot people who make it possible and in the company of those who made it worth while. We will not change the world. Jesus will do that. It’s about courage. It’s about choosing Jesus DAILY. It’s about having the courage everyday to step out of the gates and dying to our plans. It’s about Peter having the courage to step out of the boat into the water with complete faith that Jesus will not let him drown. I have seen dry bones come to life. And I am blown away that God would choose to let me be a little part of His plan. My life is forever changed.
Thank you to the amazing missionaries I had the opportunity to intern under. Thank you @cpr3movement And thank you to the five best friends I have gained while living here.”
Wow, powerful words from an amazing woman of God. An 18 year old woman willing to give of her self and be changed in the process.
