Don’t Forget Your Passport: Border Security Will Be Enforced

We were in Honduras.  It was the end of a ten day trip.  I’d worked in the hospital with children, built some houses in the jungle, prepared food baskets, painted a mural at a day care and even practiced building clearing and talked tactics with a commando group who called themselves the Cobras.  Now it was time to go home.  To make a long story short I had asked one of our organizers for my passport, we’d naively given them up for safekeeping.  The person refused, “I don’t have them.”  Here I was in a foreign country and my proof of citizenship was suddenly unavailable.  That was a terrible feeling.  Don’t give someone else the control of your identity.  Without our ID here is what our status looks like.   “that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.” (Ephesians 2:12)
