Presidents Letter Summer 2021
As the world starts to re-open, we at Firefighters For Christ International, are preparing to re-engage our international travel training missions. Stay informed with our social media and phone app for updates.
A while back, my wife Melinda was doing a morning devotion and shared the contents with me that made me think about our trips to other countries. When we schedule a trip to another country, we assign one person to be responsible for the handling of our finances. As far back as I can remember this responsibility was handled by a member named Pat.
Pat would gather the moneys from the team and do a currency exchange. When you travel to different nations, you have to convert the currency of the place you're leaving into the currency of the destination.
If we look at this from a spiritual aspect, we invest a lot of time and effort in accumulating the currency of this world. Before we die, we need to convert our earthly currency to heavenly currency. How? You give your earthly currency, what you possess in this world, to the purposes of heaven, to the kingdom. And you do it without getting any earthly return. As firefighters, we especially know that no one knows the exact time of their departure, you should be making the most of your time and converting as much as you can into heavenly currency. For it is only wisdom to exchange that which you can never keep to obtain which you can never lose.
Treasures in Heaven
19 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.- Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
Thank you for allowing me to serve.
In Jesus' name, Joe
