When people think of a missionary they usually picture someone in a foreign country, like Africa, helping the sick and poor. That is true; some missionaries do that. These people believe they have been called to make it their full-time job to tell others about God. They live all over the globe and put their lives on the line for what they believe.
I think of the story of two young men in the 1700’s. They had heard about an island with a large population of slaves. They were determined to share the Gospel with them. They ...

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV) “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
How often do we thank God? I can't answer for anyone but myself. And you know your own self. It's easy to thank God for a new day and the food you eat.

I’ve recently been very drawn to the story of Jesus sending out the twelve apostles in Matthew chapter 10. Here we see Jesus tell these twelve men to leave everything in the pursuit to heal the sick and to drive out impure spirits, but with a few conditions. They are to take nothing with them and they are to focus solely on the lost sheep of Israel, not the Gentiles. These two conditions very much pricked my heart.

We live in an environment where needs are often met without much concern ...
Our team recently had the opportunity to go to La Paz, Honduras and serve with The Filling Station. We spoke in 3 local schools, able to not only have fun singing songs and playing games with the kids but to present the gospel as well! We also had the chance to run a day camp at the feeding center for 3 days, have a youth night for the youth of the area, a community movie night where we showed “I Can Only Imagine,” and helped open the feeding center one night to feed the community. We praise the Lord for the opportunity to share the love of Christ with all those we ...
