i cannot believe that i’m leaving for Guatemala in two weeks! i want to thank you all for the part you are playing in this adventure – a piece of each one of you is coming with me on outreach…between your financial support, your prayers, and encouraging words, i am so blessed and cared for! i am about $100 away from paying off my school/outreach fees – thanks for stepping up friends – you’re support means so much to me. i am honored to go on outreach on your behalf – i’m representing you all as i go – we are invading Guatemala and Belize as ambassadors of the Kingdom of God.
these last weeks of lecture were wonderful – two more weeks about hearing God’s voice and becoming more aware of His presence, tapping into the Holy Spirit’s power for evangelism and ministry. so much is happening – too much to even tell you on the blog, i must have coffee with each of you when i get home so we can talk in person. God is so good!
i’m beginning to settle on some future directions for the season of life when DTS is over…i can’t wait to share some details with you 🙂 in the meantime – my mom sent me these verses today…i’m claiming them for my future ministry – they so perfectly articulate the desires of my heart. so i’ll leave you with this:
even though i am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, i have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized – whoever. i didn’t take on their way of life. i kept my bearings in Christ – but i entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. i’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those i meed into a God-saved life. i did all of this because of the Message. i didn’t just want to talk about it; i wanted to be in on it.
