The first aspect of partnership is that we are partners in the gospel (see my last blog). The second aspect of partnership is that we are partners with the Holy Spirit (Philippians 2:1 – 2).
Partners in the Holy Spirit are in relationship with one another, regardless of time and distance. The Holy Spirit is not limited by time and distance. Even though the missionary is separated by 10,000 miles and several time zones from the partner(s), that does not prohibit partnership from happening. Partners are like-minded, have the same love, are one in spirit and purpose. Distance isn’t the issue. Partnering with the Spirit is the issue. What is He saying we should do? Then, we do it!
Children are suffering in Zimbabwe. Many are being trafficked out of the country to other African countries, the Far East, Europe, the U.K., even the U.S.A. Widows are suffering without adequate incomes, yet trying to take care of their children, or grandchildren, or even great-grandchildren. The Spirit has led us to transfer from Malawi to Zimbabwe. We go knowing that God loves each Zimbabwean and wants to transform their lives.
