27 DaysPosted: April 8, 2015
You know, when you plan a trip like this one, you see a need, or an empty spot that needs to be filled with God somehow, and you sense God saying, who will go? And you answer, “I will go!” And so you decide to go, because there is a need. You don’t worry about the details. You just know you need to go. And so, it becomes an adventure, because there are so many unknowns, and because you know there will be difficulties, sacrifices, some discomfort. That’s how missions generally are.
Our fast approaching missions trip is shaping up that way. I don’t mind. Phil doesn’t mind. it’s kind of how I know I’m suited for such things. Actually, I’m more comfortable with the idea of trekking around in unknown circumstances. I feel like that’s where I belong. This place Phil and I live in, it’s a small apartment. It’s suitable living space. But it’s not really home. It’s more like a headquarters. I don’t feel like I have a home. And as such, there are all kinds of longings inside. And one of those is to go to try and secure an eternal home for those who don’t know there is one available for them.
I’m getting excited about this trip, but it’s not at all a giddy sort of excitement. It’s as I imagine a warrior might get excited about going to war. There is some trepidation. But There’s no question of doing anything different.
If you’d like to help, I really feel we need more committed intercessors. Let us know if you can commit to that.
If you can help with more earthly needs, it’s tax deductible:
