Through Heaven’s Eyes
When I was a little girl I adored the movie The Prince of Egypt.
Let’s be honest here. It is still an absolute favorite of mine today; several months ago I walked in on the First Graders watching this movie for religion class, and I simply HAD to help “monitor” them for the rest of the CLASS.
My favorite part of the movie (which tells the tale of the life of Moses) is a song that reminds Moses that His life isn’t about Him – that he should “look at your life through heaven’s eyes.”
I always thought how cool that would be – to be able to see my life or life in general through God’s eyes – to see the insane spider web of interactions and connections that must make up our lives and to know exactly the impact they have.
Recently, Jon and I were able to spend some time in the states telling others about the Chile mission. I can’t even begin to tell you how shockingly emotional that was for us! It was a beautiful feeling to be standing in front of a church presenting, and to be receiving text messages in that same moment from Chilean members wishing us love and blessings on the presentation.
It truly moved us to be “the middle people.” To live and to see the needs of our Linares church and the need to evangelize to as many Chileans as possible and then to stand in front of donors in the states who wished to support the mission and our involvement in it.
The experience gave us a small but clear insight into the connection of believers all over the world and how God provides for His people. We felt incredibly happy to get a tiny taste of what God gets to see every day – the beautiful interconnected world of believers and His word being spread!
Thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts, for the many kind words, prayers, and donations!
The joy of Christian communities is that even if you are never able to visit Chile, the Holy Spirit can still use you to impact the growth of believers there.
The community of believers from all over the world is powerful and essential to our volunteer positions with the Linares congregation. We are committed (God-willing) to live in Chile and to serve Him! Please take some time to pray about being a part of the work being done in Chile.

John 17:20-23: Jesus Prays for All Believers
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
P.S. We weren’t only presenting in the states, but had time to vacation with family! I honestly don’t have the words to describe how wonderful it was to be with family and friends, to meet a new niece and two new nephews for the first time, and to celebrate my brother’s wedding. God is good!
