At night, Kim shared with me from a book I still have yet to read, "One Thousand Gifts." The writing on the pages were simple reminders of God's perfect gifts he bestows on us everyday. During our down time between sessions, I spent a lot of time with a young lady named Reilynn. We met for the first time on this retreat, yet our hearts seemed to beat for the same things. She and her husband served as missionaries overseas. Now, they are living in Columbia, SC while he attends seminary. Her husband heads up the youth ministry at a local church specifically targeted for Korean . Through the stories Reilynn shared, her husband is truly impacting young people through the gospel of Jesus Christ. This couple lives in married student housing while raising five children, and they live on humble means. Their lives are poured out as a living sacrifice to our Lord. I admire them. Their lives teach me.
This morning I received an email from Reilynn. This is what she wrote:
But you will not go out in haste,Nor will you go as fugitives;
