Jesus says he is the vine. We are the branches. Together we produce fruit, love, that will last (John 15:1-17). Each person is a unique strand that reveals an aspect of God strengthening everyone. Together, supporting one another we grow in receiving love from God and each other and sharing love. Love is lasting. Love transforms. Love exponentially grows. I shared this message with the church in Niamey and the fifth and six grade students at all of the Remember Niger schools. They inspired me with their love, their passionate worship, gracious hospitality, zeal for learning, eagerness to share, genuine joy and peace that love will unite us all in harmony.
