Matthew 4:27 “ Take courage!”
After Jesus told the disciples to take courage, Peter climbed out of the boat.
“Take courage” was the most common response I heard in Africa regarding anyone who was hurt or not quite right.
If I stubbed my toe, my assistant said, “Take courage.”
If I coughed, my helper said, “Take courage.”
If I was sick, my friend said, “Take courage.”
Jesus said, “Take courage!”
Take courage in the Lord for He is with you.
WHO AM I?
Hello and welcome to my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I was a medical missionary for almost thirty years in West Africa. Celestial Safaris are devotions about people, places and situations in Africa.
I've worked in Senegal, Liberia, Sierre Leonne, Ghana, Benin, Kenya and Zaire. I spent thirteen years in Nigeria establishing mobile clinics and another thirteen years in Togo.
I took time out to complete a Bachelor's degree in Theology, a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Community Development.
I pray these devotions will bless and encourage you.
