Living Missionally In Guatemala! Day 1!

Living Missionally In Guatemala! Day 1!

    It’s an amazing feeling when you see the very things that you’ve prayed for over the years begin to unfold before your very eyes.  This particular missions trip is an answered prayer. In 2011, the Lord began to plant the desire for missions in my heart. My husband and I had just got married and I told him, “babe I believe we are going to do missions soon.” And of course my husband responded with what he always says, “God’s will be done.” Over the next few years doors began to open for us too experience what it is like on the mission field. Then In 2013, during one of our trips I met a woman who I just knew within me that I needed to serve. She is a missions leader for Adventures in Missions and Founder of the Purchase Effect. Fast forward to today, and I am assisting with leading this amazing team of people while being trained by a missionary. God is so faithful guys, because all of this has been orchestrated by Him. Growing up and to adulthood I was never exposed to missions or missionaries. What I’ve learned is that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He truly does give us the desires of our hearts. (Ps 37:4) But if we  are also seeking Him first and the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, His desires naturally become OUR desires! (Mat 6:33).  So I’ll be blogging about this experience and the ones to come later this year as I train to lead teams myself one day soon! Next year prayerfully some...

I had been here twice already for this Adventures in Missions trip and really didn’t understand what God wanted to do or learn a third time.   After 8 days of being in Thailand and doing ministry and outreach in the streets of Patpong, experiencing one night of outreach in Nana, and building relationships in our neighborhood where we reside, its’ so evident why I am here again. We are building trust in women who have been exploited, disappointed, hurt, mistreated, and used. As I see many of the same face for a third time, I have witnessed their guards come down and faces light up because I am in their country again; taking the time to love them. Even with language barriers and the use of my handy Thai language app, hand motions; there is a language that we speak that they understand fluently and that is: Love. It’s the one language that transcends barriers, and breaks down walls.   Building this trust and showing the love of Christ is all a part of the greater lesson I have learned by coming on these trips. This lesson is on “how to live missionally. “ Missional living is simply the posture, thinking and behavior of a missionary in order to engage others with the gospel message. It’s the belief that we all have a responsibility to fulfill the great commission. This is...
