Island Time

Traveling this week with a mission team from FUMC, Irving to work with Bahama’s Methodist Habitat.  It is a great group of missioners, that are experienced servants who have given themselves over the years on different parts of the globe.  I am proud to serve with them this week.

Arrived on the island of Eleuthera after a leg to Miami, then to Nassau before landing at Governor’s Harbor.  What a day of travel to a beautiful spot on God’s earth.  But, a quick drive to Camp Symonette reveal what is often times behind the thin veneer of island life; real people who want the same things every other one of God’s children desire.  It was a pleasure at dinner to meet some of the islanders who are becoming new friends in the faith.

Becky Thompson one of our host for the week provided our orientation and shed new light on the phrase island time, we busy Americans make light of in our humorous ways.  She said island time means it doesn’t matter what you are about to do, but who is the person in front of you.  Ouch, it always seems I have very important things to do. But, more important than the person in front of me?

Island Time, thanks for pointing me the way, I think I will give it a try.

Pray for us.
