Samaritan’s Purse is involved in assessing homes that are in most urgent need of help and organizing groups to go and do the work. They were also responsible for getting all the material out there, which mainly came from the U.S. Other than building, we were told that Samaritan’s Purse will distribute a Christmas box to every child in Grenada this year.
This trip has made me realize how much I had taken for granted here in Canada. Things such as a home, fresh water and food are not basic items everyone has in Grenada. I have also learned a lesson about materialism. I saw how joyful these people were with the little they had and it became real to me that it does not matter what you have. These things will only make you happy for a short while. Philippians 3:7-8 “I once thought all these things were so very important, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have discarded everything else counting it all as garbage, so that I may have Christ.”
