Christian Virtues

Virtues Colossians 3

This is my greeting today. In Peru they continue celebrating their independence. In seven more years it will be the great 200 years to celebrate!

My assistant Cristina has two days off work, but her “boss” has no time off. I’m busy writing lessons about salvation using the colors of the watermelon. It’s in Spanish as usual but I have translated the basics to English. Maybe tomorrow, or the next day I will share it with you.

I want to ask for prayer for a dear lady in Huancayo, Peru. I just found out about her predicament. Something has happened to her hands and feet. They are twisted. She lives on her own, her son has abandoned her. She cannot work due to her condition. My dad’s wife’s sister and her husband aid her. They have to travel quite a distance each day to take her some food. We are now studying the possibility to provide her with a wheelchair.

Pray for Dominica. She is one of many in similar conditions. When I hurt and have difficulties walking I can thank God that I still can walk and fend for myself. It breaks my heart to think of this lady.

Here is another story, about a brave lady in the Far East, who has no legs or only part of her legs. I heard about her through a pastor in Sweden who was praying to God for a special kind of bicycle for her. She goes into the jungle and has to crawl to move, and she does it to preach the Gospel. I’m so proud of her! Such courage and love!

I’ve lived in the jungle. I just picture all the crawling creatures on the ground–the snakes, the bugs…! God led this pastor to meet a person that can help him acquire the bicycle this lady needs.

All of these virtues displayed are and should be the most natural thing for a Christian. May God help us all to be compassionate, kind, humble, forgiving and loving… all like Jesus!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
