“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”” Isaiah 52:7
Amen, Amen, Amen…
This is the passion of my life – to bring good news, to publish peace, to bring good news of happiness, to publish salvation – to say that God reigns. This is the passion that my wife and I share together. So, for the next year (hopefully less) we are dedicating ourselves to the task of raising the support that we need to move to Latin America and serve the church there as they work to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ.
I know that there is so much to be done here – in my home country – in my home state – in my city. I believe that the Lord gives each of us a calling to serve Him. Often He gives us a specific calling to a particular place and people. There are so many who want to stay home. They have a strong desire to serve Christ in the United States. And that is wonderful. Each semester hundreds are graduating from good seminaries across the country willing and able to serve here. Few are willing to leave and serve in other countries. I am not here to worry about the callings of others. My wife share a strong desire to serve our brothers and sisters in Latin America. This is our calling. This is how we wish to finish our lives.
Many people have said to us how exciting it must be to go and live in Latin America. Well, I think that it will be. However, the excitement is not the where or how we will serve that excites me (well ok, maybe a little). It is the Who that we serve that excites me. Serving Jesus is the adventure, wherever that may be.
