God works in mysterious ways

One of the best parts about being able to come back to the U.S. for a time for my studies is the chance to spend a little time with my family on either end of my class. On Sunday, we went to the nursing home where my Grandmother lives and took her to the worship service in the cafeteria.

The services are done by four different churches on a rotating basis. On Sunday, the group consisted of a group of African ladies - truly African, from Nigeria. They held an upbeat, joyful service and taught a short, inspiring lesson Bible lesson.

I had a chance to speak with them afterwards and told them how wonderful it was to know that while God sent me from the United States to Brazil, God sent them from Nigeria to the United States, and they came and ministered to my Grandmother when I could not be there.

I thank God for the body of Christ and its wonderful diversity. I also thank Him for His incredible creativity - I never would have thought to do things the way He does them, which is exactly how He can bless so many people in so many wonderful ways.
