The Lord has truly blessed our journey and time here in Athens, and things have gone quite well so far. The highlight to this point has been having the opportunity to share the love of Christ by partnering with Hellenic Ministries to feed the refugees here in the city. On our very first night here we had the joy and privilege of serving hundreds of refugees and observing as the Gospel was presented to them. For me, this was a beautiful picture of God’s love and grace in action as a mosaic representation from various races, tribes, tongues, and nations worked hand in hand for the common cause of loving our neighbor.
Another high point of our time here was being able to visit the famed Acropolis. To view the Parthenon, the Agora and to stand on Mars Hill in the exact spot that the Apostle Paul preached his stirring message from Acts 17 was life-changing. Praise God from whom all blessings flow, “for in him we live and move and have our being”. (Acts 17:28)
