God's Circle of Giving

The Cameroon Harvest Project team took the apostle Paul's words to heart:

"In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"

But since God is God, we never were just giving. We were also receiving. One of the ways God gave himself to us was through the songs of people who came to receive a chair. As Perpetua, Maurice, Constance, Sandreen, and Bartholomew waited to receive a chair, they ministered to us God's Spirit and strength and joy.
