Gliding over the mountains of Turkey at sunset. Remarkable. Jesus’ words again ricochet around my head in God’s commission to all followers of Jesus Christ, “Go out into all the nations…” We land shortly and then we will embark on a four day journey with 90 others who are gathering together to learn, discuss, pray and look to God to inspire and give us faith to go after the task of telling everyone everywhere about our triune God, his practices and his posture and show them how to obey the commands he laid down for us.
One posture and practice that we will discuss thoroughly is praying for our daily bread. We have to do this individually and we must do so to carry out plans and strategies to be faithful to God’s commission. As leaders in helping to fulfill the Great commission we need fully supported staff, fully supported teams to carry out strategies, offices that have the tools and systems in place to meaningful invite, thank, report and repeat so that others can join us with their gifts, and to be constantly on the look out for a network on generous givers who want and need to be about the task of reaching the world for Christ.
All of our international leaders already are so courageous in embarking on this mission. They live daily so dependent on the Lord to protect and provide for them. Pray for us as we encourage one another to believe. To believe that God will supply what we need to do what He has asked us to do. Our verse that has inspired us to even gather as we have is this:
Pray that we we believe this with all of our hearts, minds and strength.
