( I am traveling today and decided to re post this.)
Your WALK talks louder then your TALK talks. My husband preaches a good sermon, he preaches in 3 languages, but among the tribe, his life of service was the best sermon ever!
I’d rather see a sermon . . .
then hear one any day.
I’d rather you would walk with me,
than merely tell the way!
The eye’s a better pupil,
and more convincing than the ear.
Your words may be confusing,
but example’s always clear!
I’d rather learn my lessons
by observing how it’s done,
Conversation might be easy,
but your tongue too fast may run!
I may not fully understand
the fine advice you give,
But there’s no misunderstanding
how you act or how you live!
Here is my husband taking care of an asthmatic woman and giving medicine to a sick toddler.
Cooking soup for the village.
Pulling a bad tooth.
Visiting a village to provide needed medical attention and sharing the gospel. Made friends with the chief.
Delivering Bibles in the Ye'kwana language.
Teaching the Old Testament to Indian church leaders and pastors.
Making sure medical emergency patients were flown to town for treatment we could not provide in the village.
Removing stitches from a child's arm.
Hanging out and being part of their lives.
