Twice a year Mike selects a study for Team Honduras to go through together. On Friday we started our latest study. As a team we are going through a DVD/workbook study called Idol Addiction. This study is put together by Julie Sparkman of Restore Ministries. Julie is also on staff with Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL.
This nine DVD study features lectures given by Mrs. Sparkman and a workbook for homework. The presenter has 15 years of counseling experience, earned an M.A. in Counseling and is a board certified Christian counselor.
The study helps us face our false gods and restore us with the gospel. In Romans 7:15 Paul tells us, “For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.” In the same way, we make idols of family, work, possessions, approval and more. Many Christians can explain that Christ must come first in lives of all believers, but often we do not live our lives the same way.
It is our hope that as a team we will grow and gain the tools to serve and support each other. Please pray with us that this study will touch each member of Team Honduras and enable us to grow closer to Christ.
