"Shout joyfully to the world, all the earth; Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises." Psalm 98:4
The blogs this month are dedicated to celebrating the uniqueness and awesomeness of the Makarios staff that the Lord has assembled, and there is nothing more fitting to showcase one of these special qualities than pointing to the singing and praising to the Lord that comes out of the mouths, hearts, lives of our staff - and often through music.
We have some talented singers on our staff and also those who praise God with wild abandon - it's a beautiful thing! During the summer time, our mission groups had the opportunity to experience our choir of national staff praise the Lord through singing.
Some of our visiting soon- to- be -staff were given a warm "How are you?" this way . . .
There is a sincerity, a playfullness and a genuine love for the Lord among this staff. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we've all been rescued - and of course we're going to sing about it!
Another amazing thing about the staff is that most can praise the Lord in two languages, if not three or four!
Like the Makarios staff, we pray that you have a song in your heart for the Lord and that you are boldly sharing it with uninhibited gladness!
