Today I have the opportunity to go speak to a group of missionaries about Refuge. I get to share the mission and vision of reaching teenagers with the love of Jesus Christ to a group of people that spend their entire lives traveling to foreign countries, learning new languages, risking their lives day in and day out. It seems like I should be listening to them more than them listening to me.
I’m excited to hear some of their stories. While I’m not trying to diminish what I do, because it’s important to reach your backyard just as much as it is to go all over the world, I have a nice life here in the states. I have a home, a solid income, a car, Starbucks.
I’m thankful to all the people who’ve answered the call of God to travel the world and speak the message of Jesus Christ. Not just because they are speaking the message of Jesus Christ, but also because their stories remind me to remain humble in my mission. To work hard and with excellence.
Because the students I reach today, may be the missionaries of the world tomorrow.
