Living with Simplicity

Flávia GuimarãesReno & Natália BlogLeave a Comment

I never used a hoe and never even done gardening. Just beans. I think that at some point I lost the sense of the simple things of life, I stopped observing the beautiful and natural to live the artificial. And it was difficult to fit into this new life, I suffered a reality shock and I was lost in the midst of creation. And as Brad says, I had to change my mindset. And this was only missiology and agriculture classes. And it did not stop there, in each class of physiology, basic nursing, anatomy, nutrition, cooking, oral health, mental health I was discovering my own identity. In the spiritual disciplines I could not contain my happiness. Massage and hydrotherapy classes, plus the classes on how to deal with the lack of a doctor and dentist, have shown my ability.

I once heard that life holds great surprises, but in fact I have learned that God surprises us with his greatness. He brought me to the Amazon to teach me the real meaning of the word service. Here there are people who need others and the School of Missions helped me understand that I can love and serve these people simply with my dedication and disposition.

God uses different means, and he used a video on Facebook about this beautiful NGO to change the course of my story. I had no clue that I would be here, but walking with God is a daily newness of life and, therefore, I accepted His call. Without knowing what to I would encounter, I decide to try something new. And hey, it’s been amazing !!! If you want to live a unique, special and transforming experience, come dedicate some time from your life to serve other people. Maybe, you just as I need to get out of the artificiality to live the supernatural of God.
