Bringing the Light of Christ to the dark world of Sexual Exploitation
Yesterday as we did some exercises with the FFI team to better understand others personalities ...the daughters were able to share alot about what the Lord has done in their lives since joining our program. There was so many things that just warmed my heart but the big one was how God has used my wife Kenia. I remember when we first got married and the burden of discipleing/training these girls was put on her shoulders...she was not very good at it in the beginning and lacked the confidence in herself to believe she could meet the need. Like the fool that I can be at times, i thought ok well I will find another sister to run the girls and let Kenia focus on her reponsibilities as my wife which she has been awesome at since day 1..my caveot statement to her was her role leading the daughters had nothing to do with her..all she had to do was let God use her.
As the 2 years have passed she bought into that and has become a powerul tool for the Lord..she is an incredible teacher, filled with love and grace and the perfect compliment for my personality which is the Lion. I am so proud of the fruit she has produced along with Yammy, and the many other sisters who serve both part and full time with us as we serve these girls. The way we share what God is doing at Breaking Chains seems to make it seem like it is my work that produces the fruit but the reality is my dream of becoming irrelevant has come to fruition. Kenia leads the woman and my part is at times doing the counseling one on one and lots of being the tough lover..beyond that all the background work that our US staff does to make sure we have the funds to do the frontline, the stuff we need gets here and the awarenss keeps growing are what really allows the Lord to do what He is doing....I am proud of the team the Lord has provided and blown away by how He is using Kenia to not only lead these daughters to Christ but teaching them to become fruitful disciples themselves..BLESSED!
