“death is a microphone” #isthisthingon

“Jesus came to unchain us from the shackles of the fear of death, so we can look at death as a platform and not with panic.”

It was such a special weekend wrapping up this amazing series. My husband wanted to give a gift to everyone in fresh life. A little reminder that God has given each and every one of us a microphone. And it was really a precious thing to see people of all ages leaving  with this necklace.

This message hit home deeply for us. As death has proved to be a microphone in our family. My husband came up with four points to explain how this is true:

1) No words are listened to like last words

2) Things you have done live on

3) It forces people to consider their end

4) The crown jewel of our faith is put on display

He brought up how our lives make an impact, and sometimes even more after we die. It’s true for our sweet daughter Lenya. Although she had only five years on this earth with us, the impact that this girl continues to have on this world and eternity is far beyond what we can even see. My husband mentioned that the video of Lenya’s Celebration of her life the day after Christmas, has been viewed over 60,000 times, and that’s not normal for a five year old to have that kind of microphone. But it’s what God is doing, and we are honored to have any part in it, even as we continue to ache and yearn and miss her deeply.

“There’s no bad time to be a Christian, but there’s no BETTER time than when facing the grave.”

    Hi Jennie, just want to share with you our story. 2 years ago we had the chance of meeting Jesse and Becca when they came to Costa Rica for a mission, we shared the gospel in the city and had a great time with them, once they left back to US we kept in contact by Facebook. Last December (2012) my husband and I were having some vacation time when we heard (by Jesse) about Lenya, we watched the 24th special service and our life changed. We have been following very close all the services, preaches and events as O2 and RTC. We have learned about the excellence and passion you guys work with, and we have been even able to share your testimony after Lenya with a couple of friends that lost their kids and how God has been always the only anchor to your soul! I was reading today (your blog) about how we are His Microphones and I realized the power God used on Lenya’s to amplify His word to CostaRica and immediately inspired us and pass on so much hope, passion, excellence and a deep desire to serve Him everyday with all we are.
    My family and I wanted to say THANKS Lusko Family, you have been Godsend for our life, our ministry and whatever God has for us, you are a high impact Microphone and we really hope we can see you someday, even we are not with you be sure we are also FreshLife..
