As a cross-cultural servant, I feel comfortable being a giver. I came to the Middle East to share, to give, and to serve, but often God turns things around and puts me in the position of receiving. I don’t quite know how to handle receiving from those we came to serve. It doesn’t feel as natural to me, but I’m learning.
Last weekend I received a gift that brought tears to my eyes. Our small fellowship had a party to share the Christmas message with friends. We planned games, food, and a program. Before the party started, I was tired from all the preparation and feeling a bit anxious inside. Would any of our mslm friends come?
