When I Was a Child…

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me” (I Corinthians 13:11).

Go back to your childhood. It was not that long ago. Life was much simpler then. You knew what you wanted to do, and you went about life hoping and praying that someday it would come true. But now . . . life is so much more complicated.

Do you remember when you dreamed about being a missionary? Remember in Sabbath school you sang the song:

A boat goes sailing to the mission land,
Sailing, sailing mission boat.
It takes a teacher to the children there,
Sailing missionary boat.

A plane goes flying to the mission land,
Flying, flying mission plane.
It takes a doctor to the children there,
Flying missionary plane.

It’s not too late to be a missionary. Jesus can help you revive and realize those dreams. You can be a teacher, a mother, a nurse, an accountant, a father or nearly any other role. Take your children with you to the mission field. The important thing is to go and show the people the love of Jesus.
This is what all children want: to be loved and to know the love of the Savior. You know Him; you love Him. Please, listen to the voice from your past. Listen to the Holy Spirit. You can share the love of Jesus among the unreached.

Please contact us at service@afmonline.org. We will help you fulfill your childhood dreams, and you will help answer the prayers of the children you will reach with the love of Jesus.

“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love”
(I Corinthians 13:13).
