remembering... fullness.

For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 
and you have been filled in him who is the head of all rule and authority.

Colossians 2:9-10

I might be slightly biased but, I'm pretty sure they're the cutest bunch of kids I've ever seen... ;)

"I have compassion on the crowd... if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way.  And some of them have come from far away."
Mark 8:2-3

...if you pour yourself out for the hungry
and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
then shall your light rise in the darkness
and your gloom be as the noonday.
And the Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail.
Isaiah 58:10-11

snapshot summary #41

Weekly  Wrap-up 
{A Snapshot Summary}

Monday - 10.11.10

[family day... I made our favorite special lunch: pot roast with vegetables... 
never mind that it was amazingly tough meat :) ]

Tuesday - 10.12.10

[When he heard that someone would be going out to kill lunch, after some time, Micah finally convinced one of them to lend him a gun (he had to agree to pay for the bullet). No one there thought that it was possible for the gringo to kill anything! 
Well. Little did they know who they were dealing with ;) the MIGHTY hunter.]

Wednesday - 10.13.10

[These people are some of the believers in the village, gathered in the church leader's house.  
They all were quite enthralled watching Micah set up his tent inside the house.  This is a seriously momentous occasion as they'd probably never seen a tent before.]

Thursday - 10.14.10

[Between two of the villages, is this hot spring waterfall.  
Micah usually takes advantage of stopping off here to take a mid-week shower. :) 
On the way there, they saw a huge river dolphin right next to their boat, 
had been hearing stories in every village of anaconda sightings in the area, 
so were feeling ever so slightly unsettled and jumpy...]

Friday - 10.15.10

[On a 45 minute jaunt through the jungle between villages 
the guys were enduring some serious humidity.
In a nearby village Micah prayed for a lady who only 6 months ago had been shot 
by a trip wired shotgun on this same trail (they use this kind of trap to bring in game for food)... 
needless to say Micah didn't wander off for any potty breaks.]

Saturday - 10.16.10

[We welcomed our hero home this afternoon... and everyone's dying to hear all about his adventures!]

To play weekly show and tell along with me, find out more HERE.

Why Asa, who did right and had a heart wholly God's, gave all the treasures that were left in the house of the Lord as well as all the treasures of the king's house to Ben-hadad king of Syria, is beyond me. Well, I guess if it's peace you're after... temporary peace, that is.

He gave away what was left of the treasure... all the tangible glory of the temple of Jerusalem. gone.

"These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ."
Colossians 2:17
He gave away gold and silver shadows. Just shadows.
The substance is in Christ.

Strange those riches we can both see and touch are shadows, and He whom we yet cannot see is the substance...
...the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27

"I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you... that your hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is

Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures

of wisdom and knowledge."

God, help us to see, to remember that our treasure is YOU.
As Christ is in us, we lay hold of the only everlasting Treasure of true substance.
