Power, Love, and Self-discipline

This has been one of the longest weeks of my life, by far.

Crossing time zones is never fun, but I think I’ve finally adjusted to the western time zone! Yay! We learned so much and met so many amazing people during our training week. What an honor it was to meet global missionaries, DPF executives, representatives of different DoC ministries and former peace interns.

As we set out to a heavily scheduled summer of church camps, I am filled with excitement and fear. Excited for the new friendships and the new places I will get to experience, and nervous about the unknown that is tied to all of that.

“But God did not give us a spirit of timidity but one of power, love, and self-discipline.”

So this is my prayer for myself and for my fellow peace interns.

We know that peace does not come easy. It is not the natural response to tragedy or violence. So as we head out, I pray that we all seek a better understanding of the intricate and complex thing that is peace, and the power, love, and self discipline that comes along with it.

Will you pray with me?

Rachel Shomali
