Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless HIS HOLY NAME.

God Did It For Me! (Conclusion!)

Mexico or United States?

So now the questions arise: Which do you prefer? Mexico or the United States? Which is home? Do you miss the States when you are in Mexico?

My answer is as follows: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

In Mexico I have: A wonderful, loving husband; my precious children; an excellent pastor-brother and family; an amazing church, ministries, church family whom I love dearly; friends (both saved and lost) for whom I pray. Most of my earthly treasures are in Mexico…so naturally that is where my heart is.

While we had the most wonderful visit to my beloved United States of America, and I wouldn’t trade that time for anything, Mexico is HOME to me. I love Mexico.

In my heart, I feel thankful that I get to share the best of two worlds. That is the way I see it.

“Thank You, Lord, for providing the way for us to make this trip, and for lovingly laying out every detail to make this trip most enjoyable.

“Help me never to put my eyes on earthly things, which do so easily corrupt; but help me to lay up treasures in Heaven… May I ever be ready to give any earthly possession I have that Your Holy name may be glorified in my life.”

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and HIS righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

From a very grateful lady!

Dearest Anna,

From you...I expected nothing less than your "conclusion". I pray that I, too, will feel the very same way when I reach the field where God has called us. I am encouraged every time I read anything from you and Mrs. Billie. Thank you, for spending the time to share.
Praying for you all.
In Christ,
:) Dodi

I too am grateful for what you post. So thankful you take time to write so that others may be blessed from it. I am hoping that I will feel such love for Mexico as you do. We feel that is where God has called us. I have yet to visit Mexico, but can't wait until I get to. Ernie knew even before he went to Mexico. Now he is certain that is where we are to be. Thank you again for sharing your heart!

So true, Anna. Mexico will always be special to me, too. How can one not fall in love with the people and the culture when God puts you in that place? He works in so many ways and I have blessed to have been able to live in both countries. I do not prefer one over the other either - they are both wonderful!
