I heard of a woman who attended a mission, who wrote afterwards to the missioner saying, “Dear Sir, I have come to know Jesus Christ during the mission. I feel he is calling me to preach the Gospel. The trouble is, I have 12 children. What shall I do?” The missioner wrote back, “Dear Madam, I’m delighted to hear that God has called you to preach the gospel. I’m even more delighted that he’s provided you with a congregation!”
I pray for all of us that our eyes are open to the mission field that is in front of us!
