Many of us have spent Lent reflecting on Jesus and on God’s love for us (John 3:16). But this isn’t something we need to put to one side now that Easter is over – for the story continues. The next act is in play, and it includes you.
We can honour the sacrifice Jesus made at the cross by living out the two commandments he calls us to follow: to love God and love others (Matthew 22:36-40). Darwin, a youth pastor from Honduras, offers an encouragement in how we can be a light to others.
Darwin attended a training course run by Tearfund that equips young people to understand how God wants to use them to be an agent of change in their community. ‘We see ourselves not only as affected people, but as people who can also bless others,’ says Darwin.
What the church is called to be
When two deadly hurricanes hit Honduras in just two weeks, Darwin put his training into action. The impact of the hurricanes was devastating to communities who were already living in poverty. Waters of up to three metres high tore through homes.
