God’s call to mission service is a high calling—one extended to every child of God. Whether in the mission field of our home country or serving overseas, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus (Romans 10:13-15).
I have been involved in ministry for most of my life, serving God while working at summer camps, ministering in churches and non-religious occupations, and most recently serving overseas.
Through this journey of life, I have learned that God’s timing and plans are far more significant and better than anything we could ever imagine for ourselves. Following Christ, I have had the privilege to meet people and people groups that I never imagined I would meet. I have enjoyed meals with high-ranking international military officers. I have enjoyed sitting in a mud hut eating with friends that could barely afford to feed themselves.
Through it all, God has shown me that to be a servant to all, we must be willing to go where He has called us to serve. While I miss my friends in unreached areas, I am excited to be moving forward in this new chapter of life where God has led.
As a Field Director, I feel privileged to now serve other missionaries. This responsibility, too, is a high calling. To reach the lost through mentoring, coaching, supervising and supporting other workers is a blessing. I am humbled.
Lately, in my personal Bible studies, God has been reminding me of how Jesus always made Himself available to others, meeting their immediate needs—the woman at the well and the woman caught in adultery, the man at the pool of Bethesda and the woman with the issue of blood, the centurion whose servant was dying, the funeral procession for the widow’s deceased son, the raising of Lazarus, and others.
Jesus stood in the gap—paying the price for each sin—so that He might save every soul. If we are willing, God will place us right where He needs us as Jesus’ hands and feet ministering to a lost and dying world.
Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support. This world is quickly coming to a close. May we continue to work together to reach the unreached while there is time.
