Armored: The Shield of Faith - Episode 160

Armored: The Shield of Faith – Episode 160

By the time you hear this episode, Brian and I will just be getting up on our last full day of our mission trip with Honduras Compassion Partners (@honduras.cp), the mission organization associated with our church here in Southern Maryland. It’s my second trip in 18 months, and Brian’s first, and right now, we’re a combination of tired, heartbroken, encouraged and inspired:

Tired: physically and mentally, as part of our service on this trip was building a house for a family, in addition to installing water filters and playing with the children of La Paz (the town where we serve).

Heartbroken: over the physical poverty we see everywhere

Yet encouraged and inspired: Despite their poverty, the people of La Paz are filled with such hope and love for Jesus. I’d even say OVERFLOWING in His light and love. They inspire us to walk more closely with Him, and it encourages us to give more of our time, talent and treasure to care for His people.

It’s been a test to the shield of faith that we carry as part of the armor of God, for sure, and that’s exactly what we’re covering on today’s podcast episode. Plus I’ve got a NEW tool for you (that’s so new I didn’t even talk about it on the episode!) – grab it in the links below.
