During weekend services at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, Dr. Paul Osteen shared about his experience from a two month mission trip to Iraq. He and Emily, a long-time member of Lakewood Church, recently returned home from Mosul, Iraq, where they volunteered at a Samaritan’s Purse field hospital performing surgery and giving medical care to victims of war. Although there was tragedy and loss of life, there were also signs of hope. He reminded us that we can all be the hands and feet of Jesus, and that we don’t overcome evil with evil, but we overcome evil with good! (Romans 12:21)
