Alone?

Alone?

by Valita Jill Patterson

I, along with hundreds of others, was standing at the Bucharest airport at Arrivals. While waiting, I saw many come out from behind the automated doors. As one lady exited, she scanned the crowd. She walked back and forth looking everywhere. She then stopped in front of me and as people jostled her right and left, she pulled out her cell phone and made a call. On reaching the number, she said with desperation, “Where are you? I’m here all alone!”   Continue reading “Alone?”

First of all, let’s look at a verse that expresses our Great Commission.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Hidden Gems: Cluj-Napoca, Romania
