Last night we attended a dinner that was given for the purpose of honoring the people that are in lay ministry. During this special event we enjoyed wonderful food, entertainment, and fellowship in a beautiful ballroom that the staff rented. Towards the end of the evening, specific people received awards for their acts of service that were over and above the normal call of duty.

Now I am positive that the true reward for serving the Lord in any form of ministry, will come when we get to heaven and are allowed to witness the people that have made it to heaven because of our influence. Nevertheless, it is also a very blessed and festive time to be recognized for a year spent doing something we love so well as serving Jesus.

I know in Haiti and certain other parts of the world there is much devastation and sorrow. That is why I feel truly blessed (even though some would say I am poor), to have become so immensely rich during this amazing journey of serving Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. Praise His Name forever and ever! Amen.
