“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.”
My wife, La Micia and I began our new journey leading the Youth and Family Ministry in Southern Connecticut Church of Christ on May 1, 2017. If you would have told me how this all would have happened, I wouldn’t have believed you. As I think back on the last three years, I am in awe of the way God works.
As many know, on November 3, 2015 the McHargue’s had to return to the United States to begin consulting doctors on the next steps for Maria’s back surgery that would take place on November 10 of that year. This was a truly hard time for the church in Madrid and many prayers and thoughts were with the McHargue family during this challenging time. During this time, the leadership team of Madrid really stepped up and stepped in to fill in the gap to carry on the work that Cash and Maria had been doing during this challenging time in the history of the Madrid church. The Madrid church was able to keep the “ship afloat” and continue to advance God’s work during this time in large part because of the amazing work of the faithful brothers on the leadership team in Madrid who persevered faithfully under a lot of pressures. In addition, the help from the European Missions Society (EMS) and wise counsel from Silipos was invaluable. Ultimately, this was God’s guiding hand using all parts of his body to carry on his mission and show his love and care for all members of his body.
God truly does set the times and places!
