Romans 1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”

Poor Jeff. He is sick again with another stomach bug, so he will likely be holed up in the room today.

I spent the day doing laundry, helping with dishes after breakfast and lunch, and then helping in the Strong House preparing for dinner. Nancy was kind enough to show me to make her super hot chutney and I am so excited to try for myself once we get back home (and now I have it documented)!

The scripture reading for today is wonderful. As I read this letter from Paul to the Romans, it affirms all the beauty that is here on this mission. I am learning so much from the children and the staff here as my faith in God continues to grow and my relationship with Him becomes stronger. I have never been around so many people that encourage me to spend time with God daily and to continuously work on my relationship with Him. Paul’s message to the Romans is just that, our faith in God and the Gospel can grow and we can learn from others around us. When we become a ‘community of faith’ we all grow stronger and closer to God. It is such a beautiful thing and I am so blessed to be a part of this mission and this ‘community of faith’, even if it is just for 2 months.
