God gives each of us a command in Matthew 28:19-20. We are to go make disciples of all nations; that’s why we do missions.
Now that we have returned home from Guatemala and have had time to reflect on how God has used each of our gifts to glorify and further His Kingdom, I can’t help but be humbled and proud to have served alongside each of our team members. Thank you guys for a job well done; not once did any of you back away from whatever you were asked to do in sharing your faith. Sure makes this old toad proud.
Also thank you to all the folks at home that were praying for our team while we were out of the country. Your prayers were important for us – we felt them and so did our friends in Guatemala.
Team, now that we are home, let’s keep our promise and remember to pray every day for the people in Guatemala.
For anyone reading this, I would like to encourage you to take a short term global mission trip. Do it! It will change your life. Let’s be people who willingly and joyfully say, “I’m here, Lord, use me.”
John 15:7-8: “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.”
One last thing, you don’t have to cross the sea to do missions, you just need to see the cross.
May God bless and keep you in the palm of His hand.
