Day 12 – Friday – 10/5/12
!On the twelfth day of fasting, my stomach said to me, FEEEEEEEEEEEEED MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
anyhoo, here’s my real journal entry:
I’ll have a little bit more of the hunger factor for at least part of the day. This week I’ve been eating lunch but because of Desert Day today I have to wait until supper to eat. No biggie. God will give me the grace to offer it up. For Desert Day, I’m reading St. Paul’s 1st letter to the Thessalonians. And I guess as a missionary I’m starting to read this from a new perspective (bout time! considering that I’m already into my third year of missionary service). I almost feel like I could replace the names in 1 Thessalonians with my name and the names of my fellow missionaries and the people who are part of the local churches we serve.
I’m reading how people talked about the impact of St. Paul and his fellow missionaries’ visits. It also talks about how the people turned from serving idols to serving God, the Living and True God. It gives me alot of hope and encouragement for my missionary vocation. And thank goodness I was reading in 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5, because now I know what our vocation as Christians is. But you gotta read verses 16-18 to find out. 🙂 Hasta La Pasta!
