Coming Up: Puerto Rico Trip
I'm counting days toward my Puerto Rico trip. I've never been there but I heard from others that Puerto Rico is so beautiful!
My siblings and I will be traveling with a small group of Christians from Texas. We will be staying with families affiliated with Christians on Campus on the island. I just can't wait to get to know these Christians and have fellowship with them.

Ephesians 2:14 says,
"For He is our peace, who has made both (the Jews and the Gentiles) one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us;"
But Christ died for us to be our peace, to make us all one in Him.
Yes, outwardly it's not easy to overcome our differences because our differences always create offenses without us wanting to hurt anybody. So in my next post, I'd like to share with you my experiences in Puerto Rico. I'm expecting the Lord's blessing to adjust, mingle, harmonize us all together in Him.
I'm talking about 1 Corinthians 12:24 (Amplified Version):
"Which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so adjusted (mingled, harmonized, and subtly proportioned the parts of) the whole body, giving the greater honor and richer endowment to the inferior parts which lack [apparent importance],"
