On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. -2 Corinthians 1:10b-12
God are called to dedicate our lives to Him in a way that takes us far from home, away from the comforts of family and safety of community. It is a special, chosen few who answer that call with an unconditional “Yes!” It takes great faith in the power and protection of God for these individuals to go into the unknown, to preach the Gospel, work for the Kingdom, and change the lives of strangers in a strange land.
Most of us may never receive that burning bush moment which ignites a soul to foreign missions, but all of us are called to support those precious ones by our prayers and resources. While these spread the fire of the Holy Spirit abroad, we are responsible for keeping our candles burning at home, lighting the community in which we are placed for His glory.
