“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”
Those are the words of an old Australian proverb that pretty much describe a group of visitors to the ASELSI mission.
Five pastors from the Guatemalan Church of God denomination wanted to spend a few hours with the ASELSI staff to learn ways they can better serve their communities and their congregations. Their emphasis this year is to become more involved in social work and to bring much needed relief to their areas. Since ASELSI has been doing that for years the pastors thought ASELSI would be a good place to observe, to learn, to grow, to love….and then, of course, they returned home (reluctantly I’m told). They promised to return. It was a very good visit for all involved.
The mission of AELSI has always been “to equip the Saints”, today that mission was accomplished. We were honored to have these men in our presence.
