Well, I can’t believe that it has already been two months since I began at United World Mission! Time flies when you’re having fun and it really has been so much fun! I find my self daily driving home thanking God for this incredible opportunity. I absolutely feel like He created this role just for me and me just for this role…thats a great feeling! I am waiting for the newness to wear off but it just hasn’t happened yet.
Often when I am telling Lara about my day I say something to the effect of, “I feel like I am the one Paul talks about when he says God choses the weak, foolish, and unqualified.” I really do feel completely unqualified but extremely grateful for this opportunity!
I have so far had the chance to go to coffee, eat meals with, hang out with, and interview incredible people of faith all around this world from China to Budapest to South Africa to Latin America. These missionaries are daily changing lives through loving the lowest and sharing their faith with the relationships God is giving them. Many of them are in life threatening places and others are simply missionally living in communities God has led them too. Churches are being planted, children rescued, slaves set free, leaders are being trained, Christ is being introduced to the most unlikely, and His Kingdom is coming alive to the nations.
I have a small part to play in all of this but believe that it is an essential role. Recruiting, training, and sending more missionaries to the places that do not know the name of Jesus or the hope that He gives. Thank you to all of you who pray for us, believe in us, and financially give each month in support of the Rouse House!!
