But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness

We mourn the loss of Tony Gonzalez, who faithfully volunteered with Yesukan, almost since our inception, for 6 years. Tony prayed, taught, translated, encouraged and along with his wife Juanita, provided generous donations to the students and their families. He will be very missed!!

How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. Psalm 31:19 NLT

Bearing the fruit of goodness: “…we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.” 2 Thes. 1:11 NIV


For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light— for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth— Ephesians 5:8-9 HCSB

Comparing kindness and goodness – Kindness is expressed in our giving to others. Goodness comes from the Lord, changing our hearts. From the OJB: nedivut (generosity, kindness), chesed (loving-kindness)
