Lent Photo Day 7: Wonder


Day 7: Wonder.

Tuesday's photo for ReThink Church focused on Wonder.

I decided to keep it simple.

I found this quote in a book I've been digesting in the last few days "Sent" a memoir of how a family sold everything, and spent three years in a Southeast Asian country, living among Muslims.

The author closed the book - which details her family's experiences - with this powerful quote from Jim Elliot, a missionary who lost his life serving God.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot
keep to gain that which he cannot lose.
Jim Elliot (Oct. 8, 1927 to Jan. 8, 1956)

I guess today's prompt simply caused me to look for the wonder the family found in serving God in an amazing, and unexpected way.
