see the dark

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

I got an email from a friend last night that had this verse included in it. Today I talked to a business owner who moved to the States from Bolivia in the 60s. The only reason he moved here is because a missionary told him that God had big plans for him to impact a lot of people. Turns out his whole family started to follow Christ and moved to the US in search of the American dream. A true chance at freedom and opportunity. He calls the States the "land of milk and honey." At one point in the conversation he told me that Christ through missionaries are "a bright white light shining in the darkness." I thought that was pretty significant considering the email that I received a couple hours before that conversation. God works in mysterious ways for sure. I wonder what he's up to now?
