|A Heart for Missions|
In this world there are several things that I have desired to be.
One desire was to be a missionary, so God gave me a missionary heart, to love missions and missionaries. We cannot go, so we help our friends to go.
The Bible tells us that those who send out the missionaries will receive the same reward as the missionaries who venture forth.

The other was to become a Pastor of a church, but instead, God gave me a blog where I share stories. After all that is what Jesus did, he shared stories that had a message to teach us how to live.
At some of the places Robert and I have ministered, we have done the work of a Pastor, and not always with the name pastor.
I remember many years ago, after a stirring missionary service at our church, a young mother told our Pastor, “I believe God is calling me to be a missionary.”
The Pastor looked at the woman with her brood of six children, and remarked, "Lady, God has called you to a mission field of six sweet children, don't let God or them down, but nurture those children and teach them to love Jesus. You can be a missionary to your children and to your family by your example and your words."
The woman was satisfied with his answer, and I shall always remember it.
We may be called at times to a mission trip or to longer stay, but usually God is giving you and me a missionary heart to work for him where he has planted us.
Our calling may not seem important to us at times, but it is a daily walk of listening and doing as The Holy Spirit instructs us to do.
Don’t get me wrong - - it is always good to dream big!!
