Your vision and heart for others will reap rewards long after the dust settles from this trip.
The seeds sown through the work of your hands, and the fingers of others (the kids in your children’s church) will multiple countless times–until a great Harvest. When I looked at these kids–I thought about you–your heart and what you did so that they could have a constant reminder of their decision to follow Jesus Christ.
Your act of faith and obedience amazed me–as so many “grown-ups” walk in fear so often…. (I, myself have been that grown-up). Thank you for teaching us all a lesson.
The lesson I learned–big jobs-small jobs–ALL jobs matter in the Kingdom of God. Every single thing we do to express our love for God–thankfulness for our salvation–MATTERS…
I know you have a heart for missions–I am going to pray that God will continue to grow that feeling–and that He shows you every time what He wants you to do. Don’t be afraid to tackle a larger than life kind of job. If God plants the seed in your heart–pray it through and believe He can accomplish it through YOU. HE CAN!!
Sarah, you and Cory have two amazing girls. I know you realize that. I am amazed at the heart of those two–what you have sown into them is growing, maturing and blossoming into God’s purpose–His useful vessel that He will continue to use to pour out on others… I’m so glad to have been a part of what He started in her life! 🙂
To all other mama’s and daddy’s out there: Read the Bible with your children….pray with them–besides the blessing at mealtime. Talk to them about missions–about how we all have a part we can play to plant seeds of salvation for others ALL OVER THE WORLD. Young kids like Kaylee can play just as big a part as the one who packs a suitcase and boards a plane. It’s up to all of us to do our part!
This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14 NASB
Special thanks to David Pettis for having cards printed to explain the colors and serve as a reminder of the day they made a decision to follow Jesus. They are a great tool to use to witness!
