Responding to Adversity: “Christ is the Reality of Everything Positive”

This just came from our ministry partner Reaching Himalayas in Nepal, who has experienced great devastation from the April earthquake. They say trafficking of women and children as well as suicides have increased, but they also write:

“I think after all the challenges, and dangers presented in the last 6 months we do focus on positive that is Christ as the reality of all positive things!  “Christ is the reality of everything positive”. Colossians 2:16-17. We need to remember Him in all these things. In the ministry we cannot change what happens to the communities but we can always choose how we respond to them. We look at them each day through new eyes and we choose to respond with positive thought with new intelligence. We make a difference; it can be as small as support for a widow and children who are in need; those who are less fortunate. When we help others, we take the attention off of ourselves.”
