Finding God on the Amazon River

Probably the last place on earth one would think to find God would be on the long, murky and ancient Amazon River.

But that’s where I found Him.  I was on a mission trip, living on a boat with twenty others and just trying to help those along the river banks:  People who needed medical help, supplies, and hope.

As the days progressed I saw people with great needs but also with huge spirits.  They smiled.  They laughed.  They were content with whatever we could give them or do for them.  And they rejoiced in their love for God.

I started to understand that God brings people together, in His name, to share who He is as we minister to each other.  Yes, we were bringing material goods to them but they were giving us, and especially me, a new hope in just living life.  I came to see that God is along every river bank, in every city, every town and every village around this world.  All we have to do is call on His name and be ready to walk with Him daily.  He wants everyone to find Him and live our life for Him and others.
