I believe most of you know what MMAP.ORG stands for. Many people join from different areas of life but all know the Lord as their Savior, support themselves, have a trailer of some kind that is self sufficient and have their own medical ins. This must be a married couple, man and woman, willing to serve the Lord where ever needed.
After devotion this morning, Bob’s turn, he mentioned he had been a Scientist. He shared some verses in the Bible and his view was interesting. He was right, just got us to thinking more. Each morning we take turns leading devotions from 7:30 to 8:00. It is good to read from the Bible and share what we learned and grow closer to our Lord.
On this project the men’s background is a Scientist, Teacher, Mechanic and an Engineer. The women’s background is an Interpreter for the deaf and Writer, a Hairdresser and Clerical, a Teacher and a Counselor for the mentally impaired. Though separate lives we have lived in the past we all have in common the knowledge of knowing Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. We have the desire to serve the Lord by working in camps to help make them larger and safer, more accessible and more comfortable. While at the projects we want to give our best in what is expected of us and to learn even more with on the job training.
Serving the Lord all aroundAmericais our goal. Of course it is good to know that for those that want to be a part of this ministry the men are expected to work 4 days a week with a 7 hour day. The women work if needed and want the challenge.
Working with Mappers has been a delight in our lives. Not only do we learn while working at a camp the different duties but also learn from each other. We try to encourage each other, listen to each other and see what the Lord has for each of us.
Here at this camp the men are installing insulation to keep the old cabins warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The cabins are very old but still in good shape. They have also installed a vent and a cover for it. They are doing this to two of the cabins. When they are finished or just before finishing the Coordinator of the Mappers will share what else needs to be finished or start a building from scratch. This is only our second day of work for this project. Before it even began Lamar and Mike, one of the Mappers, fixed a leak in the washing machines for us to use. They also helped move picnic tables so we, when it’s warm enough, can sit outside together and picnic. Helping to get things ready to be more prepared is important.
Looks like the women will do some painting. We will give it our best.
Lamar and I want to thank you for praying for us and also wanted to give you a taste of what we do. How blessed we are to be so happy serving our Lord this way. It’s a blessing to us for each camp we enter into. We don’t always know what to expect but that is a venture we enjoy. Trusting the Lord moment by moment gives us the strength we need. Even though we don’t understand so many things that happen we know He knows and that God is in control. What more can we ask for?
Praying for ya’ll everyday and we continue to seek His Guidance Daily.
