Shelter - Refugio

The month of June is the beginning of a new "season" for us. It is an intense 2 months of American groups arriving on Saturdays and serving alongside of us for 6 days. This year, 700 people will travel here to assist us in serving the orphan child during June and July. Our theme this year is "Shelter" or in Spanish, "Refugio." We will be studying Psalm 91, Isaiah 58 and other scriptures, each week as we reflect on how God "shelters" us. As we have prepared for this time, we have discovered that "God's shelter" for us is MUCH MORE than what we have thought in the past. It is much more than a house or a roof over our head.
For me personally, I am one who likes to live "out in the open" or "free". But I also realize that I am in constant need of "God's shelter" in my life. I have already come to love the words of Psalm 91, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
