Last week I was in San Antonio for a short visit with friends. We attended a small Spanish speaking church and was once again reminded of the great things God is doing in his kingdom. The Pastor was a man who worked as a manger of a hospital Imaging department. He spent 40 hours a week at his job and then still managed to raise his family and Pastor the church.
We had a great time of fellowship the evening before and I was reminded of how privileged we are to be in ministry. The church was small by San Antonio standards, but they had just acquired a building and the atmosphere was one of great fellowship and love. I was able to sit with my wife and listen to people sing in Spanish (which I do not know) and enjoy the sacred sounds of people worshiping from a heart of love.
This was what ministry was all about. People ministering to one another. I saw tears, praise, and the word of God faithfully preached. It was an incredible day!
