Grateful for Work, but more for God's care

Got work?

Living in a place of about 10% unemployment is sobering.  We can only hire so many people.  But we are able to pay the ones we have, about 30 Mongolians, by God.

Many Mongolians find work, do the work, then never get paid by their employers!  Can you imagine showing up to your job every day wondering if you're going to get paid?

It's great to have something to do.  It's and even bigger blessing to be compensated for it faithfully.  The greatest blessing is to know where are our necessities come from...

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
(Matt 6:25)

Even the unemployed people we meet here find clothes to wear food to eat...
