Conduits of Love by Karen
Often times we feel like nothing more than conduits of other people's love. The Lord uses us to connect those in need to others who have the means and the desire to help the less fortunate.
Last week we were super blessed by a visit from a couple of our mission partners who were in Puerto Rico celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary.
In addition to the service work that they did while we were together, they also wanted to bless those in need by sharing care packages that they had assembled back home: food, hygiene items, underwear, and a beautiful picture of Jesus. They had them all sorted and labeled to make sure that the men and women received appropriate items.
When we arrived in Aguadilla we invited all the "regulars" who often gather on the street corner to join us for prayer and song.
As everyone was enjoying lunch our friends read their favorite scripture passage and shared a bit about why it's been so impactful for them. Chris did a great job of translating so that everyone could understand.

When we were done singing our friends passed out their gift bags.
"If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth." (1 John 3:17-18)
Before we left our friend, Joe, wanted to play a song for our guests as a way to express his gratitude for their generosity and love.
