There is a song by Leeland and Brandon Heath that was sent to us today from our new friend, Travis He thought it described our ministry with TouchGlobal. And as I watched this video and read the words I felt as if this song was written just for TouchGlobal. One of the questions we get asked frequently by people we meet with is “So you have no idea where you will be going?” And we say, “Yep, Where ever a crisis hits we could be sent there.” It could be right back here in Minnesota or across the world. And this song says it all, “Follow Me into the Homes of the Broken, Follow Me into the world.”+
God has called each and every one of us to Follow Him and join Him in His plan. There is one plan. That plan is to spread the gospel and make disciples of all nations. When a crisis hits people are left behind devastated and broken. And in the wake of every crisis a mission field is created. God has spared the people so that they have a chance to hear the good news of Jesus Christ! And we are called to Follow Him into the homes of those broken people and to help them not only rebuild their homes but to show them the hands and feet of Jesus so that they can rebuild their lives on the solid foundation of the gospel. So today I ask God to “use my hands and use my feet to make His Kingdom come”.
I know you all get pretty tired of us putting into our blog and our newsletters that we cannot go to the field until we are fully supported. We too have gotten newsletter upon newsletter asking for support from missionaries and organizations. I know now how that missionary feels now though. They are so passionate about their ministry and wanting to get out there and be the hands and feet of Jesus that they sometimes forget that not everyone is as passionate about their calling as they are! That everyone has a different passion. If your passion is to Follow Him into the homes of the broken, consider how you can do that. Some people are “goers” and some people are “senders”. We are “goers”. We have been called to go and we couldn’t be more humbled that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has called us! If you are a “goer” consider a short term mission trip or a work day at a local ministry like Feed My Starving Children or Urban Homeworks. Go to New Orleans for a week this summer and see the work that is still being done in the homes of the broken. Or maybe God has been tugging on your heart for a while and you have been considering serving for a longer time in a mission field. If you are a “sender”, find a ministry you are passionate about and be a part of sending a “goer”. You can make an impact in so many ways. Pray and ask God how He wants you to Follow Him into the World!
