Costa Rica

Love…

I have fallen in love. Not for the first time, mind you, but fallen in love again… in love with the Lord, with his word, his people, his call to go, all of it. It’s easy in our comfortable society to become, well, comfortable. But the Lord has renewed my first love…

This week I returned from a trip to Costa Rica, where I spent a few days working with the Rahab Foundation, a ministry to prostitutes in San Jose. They help sex workers see that they are loved and worthy of love. They help them get education and vocational training and find jobs. The staff at Rahab live and work like Jesus did – in the darkness, with the “sinners”, the fatherless, the widow, the oppressed.

It was beautiful, intense, heart-breaking… and I’m once again in deep love.
