Come Be the Fire Inside of Me...
The news. The wonderful fantastic news. HOORAY FOR NEW ADVENTURES! Pearce and I have the most amazing opportunity to go on a short term missions trip to the Dominican Republic March 26-April 2.
Missions? It's not about religion. It's not about getting people involved in their local church. There's no agenda. It's love. It's desperation. It's time. It's feeding the hungry. It's holding orphans. It's brushing up against someone who might have never been touched. It's giving hope. True hope. It's giving truth.
Starting next month, Pearce and I are going to start raising funds so that we can dive back into full time missions by the end of next year. We have several opportunities in Australia, Thailand, Mexico, and even here in Florida. We are just waiting to hear from God where we are to move and live and love first.
We have our first mission though...start to raise funds.
We have our second mission...Short term trip in March.
Our mission isn't to scream 'Jesus Loves You!' to others...It's to show them...and maybe use words if necessary...maybe.
It's a call I will answer. I know that this is just as much for me as it is for anyone else...and I will go. I'm not perfect. I can't always show how to be good from example. But I can love. I can learn. I want to be more like Jesus in every way...and to do that...I have to follow the life He lived...
