No Barrier

Blessings, and DeColores!

The Apostle Paul was talking about three new converts who had come to him and supplied some of his needs when he said, “For they refreshed my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.”  (1 Corinthians 16:18).   I am personally grateful to more than a hundred times that many of you, men and women, who have refreshed my spirit and the spirits of hundreds of Candidates who have attended our Weekends this year.

This has been an exceptional year for TDNG and our newest sponsored community, TDNEGA. We praise God for all He is doing through the prayerful, dedicated servants who continue to give of themselves to Him and the Kingdom work of Tres Dias. We also need your continued prayerful support as we continue to seek His will in all decisions concerning these communities.

The circumstances that surround us create both barriers and opportunities. As a matter of fact (and FAITH), we believe that every barrier that Satan would use to slow or stop our mission, is another opportunity to see the mighty hand of God and learn to trust Him more. I was reminded of an illustration a management consultant gave once. He placed a block of wood, shaped like a brick, on its end on a table. It represented a barrier to our mission. He pushed on the base of the block and it moved, but stayed right with his finger. Then he said that sometimes you need to enlist the help of “someone higher” in the organization to overcome the barrier, and he pushed near the top of the block. The block (Barrier) fell over.

Remember that we have a personal relationship with God, the “highest power” in the universe, through His Son Jesus. There is no barrier that Satan can put in our path that God, in His time and in His way, cannot help us overcome. Stay Faithful!

I leave you with this promise from Abba. “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11.25)

In Christ’s Lavish Love,
