-So in honor of Missions Week at World Harvest Church, starting next week, I decided to write a post about missions.
I think that it is absolutely crazy that it is becoming the "new normal" for me to be extremely involved in missions. Like, I have not realized it until now how involved I am in missions. It truly surrounds and poisons my life. Well, maybe I shouldn't say poisons......but it does play a big role in my life. For instance, a few days ago I was talking to one of my co-workers about missions, and how one of my friends just came back from Thailand. Then, I went on to talk about my parents' two non-profits, and how I go on a mission trip ever year with them to work for the non-profit. I also mentioned that on the last mission trip that I was apart of, I went to South Africa AND Malawi, where we went to work and help with my friends' family's orphanage.
Goodness gracious.......that is a whole lot of missions!
It is amazing to look back on your life at the age of 23, and be able to say that you have done so much right for God, your community, and for the world around you. I absolutely love being able to say that "going into all of the world" is actually apart of my life. It isn't just something that I "theologically" brush away with some blanket statement that God didn't really mean GO. I am so glad that not only me, but the people I surround myself with actually GO and do good. They GO and spread the Good News. They GO, and are Jesus' hands and feet. Like, what a beautiful thing to be apart of.
So for this week, I will be taking some time to think about a way that I can GO on an even greater level.
Just food for thought!
