"Jesus has given us the greatest gift anyone could ever have. Peace with God, the love and power of His presence here on earth, and the promise of an eternal life with HIm. We are incredibly blessed that God has given us this gift. But a unique principle of all of the gifts of God are that they are never just for us. We are to share what He has given us. We become the conduit of God’s love and grace to the world around us. We are all called to share God's message wherever we are. But God chooses some to leave their homes and families to go into a very different culture and share this good news of Jesus Christ. This missionary calling is one of the hardest yet highest callings of God. One which deserves our greatest respect and encouragement. It is with great joy and prayer that we are able to send and help support those who have accepted this call. May the Grace, Peace, Provision and Blessings of God on those who take this path of obedience before the Lord.
Mark 16:15 (The Passion Translation)
15 And he said to them, "As you go into all the world, preach openly the wonderful news of the gospel to the entire human race!" - Dan MacAulay ('DannyMac' - creator of two new Podcast series, Starting Right and Life and Hope)
