Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

This is the mission where I work in the summer. UMCOR Sager Brown is a little town in south Louisiana - a typical southern small town that looks like this in the historic district:
Like most places in the south there can be great beauty.
This is my office at the mission where I greet our volunteers, type their name tags, answer the phone and generally see to their needs in the dorm.
The residence hall is right on the beautiful Bayou Teche - such a wonderful place to spend the summers!
Our volunteers do lots of wonderful work putting together health kits, school kits, baby layettes, cleaning buckets, birthing kits and sewing kits that are shipped all over the world to places in crisis. They also go out into the local community and build wheelchair ramps and paint houses. This is our goal and our mission and our motto - painted on the wall of the depot.
We not only try to nurture people but also all of God's creatures.
Well maybe not all. I'd just as soon this one went on his merry way and didn't hang around out there by our gazebo!
