Today is the day we commemorate those who served in the beautiful PACIFIC NORTH WEST. What do you consider the best and worst parts of the consistent rainfall while being a missionary?

“I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.” John‬ ‭12:46‬ ‭ESV「我來是要作世界的光,好叫信我的人脫離黑暗。」約翰福音‬ ‭12:46‬ ‭當代譯本 #Bibleverse #light #illuminatesdarkness #lamp #church #faith #lightoftheworld #darkness #believe#worshipbackgrounds #Jesus #shalom

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. - Marianne Williamson

This pal of all pals is going to GREECE FOR 6 WEEKS to do straight ministry. I reaaaaallllly want to hide in her suitcase and go, but instead I will stay here and pray. Join me! Ally, your life shows Jesus in literally every way- and I’m not known to exaggerate (just kidding I am, but this time I’m not!!). Thanks for walking this life with Him with me!!! I’m highly expectant of the straight healing miracles He’s gonna do through you in Greece. ✨ #lightoftheworld 🧡 (sidebar: I’m not making her suuuper uncomfortable through prayer in the second picture, I have no idea what was happening but it’s funny.)

Eating breakfast this morning (ground breaking news I know) and the light through the window happened to pass through this glass prism on the bookcase. The rest of the room was still dark, but the thin stream of window light turned into this beautifully intriguing bright shining light -greasy fingerprint included. On its own the prism is alright I guess, but the beauty and intrigue comes when light passes through it. People are alright too I guess haha but there’s something different, a beautifully intriguing life joy that comes when Christ shines through people. .
May Christ be magnified and glorified through our lives; beautifully intriguing life joy shining bright. #cityonahill #lightoftheworld
Happy Friday friends!

You are not an accident.
Your birth was no mistake.
Your parents may not have planned you, but God did.
Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God.
He thought of you first.
God prescribed every single detail of your body.
He deliberately chose your race, the color of your skin, your hair, and every other feature.
He custom made you.
Every natural talent.
The uniqueness of your personality.
Nothing in your life is random or by chance.
It’s all for a purpose.
God never does anything accidentally, and He never makes mistakes.
He has a reason for everything He creates.
You are who you are, beloved,
because there is a God. (Isaiah 44:2)

• Karen’s Testimony •

Sometimes the best form of love is the act of being present, ready and unafraid to embrace and be embraced.
This is a lesson I learned from these beauties. These kids had no fear or shame while running towards our arms with wonder and excitement...Not afraid of the possibility of rejection, ready to embrace and be embraced...Not held back by "rules of conduct" or personal space, they leaped and explored. Ashna a young girl in the "Hope" school simply listened to my heart beat for an hour till she fell asleep (no need for a translator)...simply climbed up on me and leaned on my chest. There is no room for our comfort zone when it comes to love.

Thank you @karen_de_quesada for serving and loving the kiddos in Haiti! ❤️

There are days where I wander. Really wander. Who am I to dare to do this? Inspire and empower others to see the light within themselves. Who am I to write those words?
My life is not where I would like it to be. In a lot of ways I am a mess, so who am I kidding, really.
On those days, as I try to bury my insecurities in food or drama fever, or better yet a combination of the two,
My soul and everything that is God within me whisper, ever so gently.
Who are, you ask?
You are your ancestors's daughter.
You are not a mess.
You are enough.
I, the one that qualifies the unqualified have equipped you to do that which you have been called for.
Trust and surrender.
When you are uncertain and scared, I will whisper the answers to you and show you the way.
I will breathe inspiration within you.
Inhale and exhale, that's all you need to do on those days.
You are worthy.
The vision does not come without the means to bring it to pass. You can see only because you have everything you need to bring it forth.
You are more than qualified and equipped for the opportunity that is presenting itself to you now.
You beloved are in that place to show the world how it is entirely possible to shine brightly even in the midst of darkness.
Child, it is okay to be a masterpiece and a work in progress.
Letting your Phenomenal Shine always, LPS

Spread love — Imagine when love overrules, no one will have the need to cry out for help in the midst of loneliness. Imagine the healing that love could give to the broken hearted. Imagine the peace love could bring to the children of self destructive countries. None of them will go to bed hungry ever again. Imagine the world change capability that one could bring through love, we would overcome any force of evil. .

Acts 3:1-10 Peter and John went to the Temple. There at the Beautiful Gates was a man who had been lame all his life. Every day he was carried to the gate to beg for money. Peter said to him, "I give you what I have in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I order you to get up and walk!"At once the man's feet and ankles became strong, he jumped up, and went into the Temple , walking and jumping and praising God! #knittedtoys #sundayschool #childrenofgod #churchlife #christianinfluence
