I have to admit that, for 18 years, I have been using this little editorial corner to point out the myriad ways in which our missionaries are unique, amazing, exceptional, unconventional people. Now I fear I may have had it wrong all this time. They are not unconventional for going. We are unconventional for staying.
God has given us each a job to do, and no job is unimportant. When we all do our best, we achieve success.
We are praying that you are one of those members of the church militant who recognizes the Biblical evidence that the coming of the Savior is drawing nigh.
6 new missionaries have launched to 5 countries: Turkey, Benin, Cambodia, Guinea and the Philippines.
What if they were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and outfitted with every provision of heaven’s storehouse? Could they have any doubt of success?
I invite you this week to invest in Jesus and to invite others to do the same.
My prayer for us all is that in our sacrifices we will grow stronger in Christ, that His provision of grace will abound in our lives, and that our love and gratitude to our Heavenly Father will grow deeper still.
In the midst of their heartache, our missionaries’ commitment to reaching the unreached burns even brighter, because they hold even more tenaciously to God’s promises.
