One my favorite things is to meet with men. To share laughs, tears, joys, and sorrows. There is nothing more rewarding than to open the Word of God and find strength for the dark days of our lives. God’s Word brings hope, not only for this life, but for everlasting life.
Today I met with five wonderful men. Men who are not perfect; men who struggle. These men face challenges more than others. They have left the people they love and the places familiar to them. It was their own decisions that got them here. They look at their past and wish they had made different choices. But life goes on; each of them are learning to cope with the challenges of living in a foreign land. They are learning to adopt it as their own land—it is difficult.
