The Framework

A few weeks ago, on Sunday after Anchors Away (a worldview study), I was hit hard by what our guest speaker (a Christian lady who came out of a mormon background) had said. "Jim Jones, a man who came from here (Indiana) led 900 people to Guyana (I believe...maybe) and told them to kill themselves by drinking kool-aid (I believe), and did...and all died....what a horrible thing to do", she said. That hit me hard, so hard that I had a hard time figthing back the tears on way back to my friends house afterward.
Then again.......while in the car listening to Klove radio......."Did you know John that every 7 seconds a child dies of lack of hunger?" That day they were pleading with daily listeners to give up at least $13 a month to help feed a child for a month. Every seven seconds! Some one dies every second, and that person hasn't heard about Christ, and what He has done for them. God has been tugging at my heart to reach out to the lost and unsaved. I don't know why he has now put it on my heart to reach out to the lost and unsaved that they may hear of Christ, but I don't stop to I now know for sure that witnessing/missions is part of the plans that God has for's my calling and I aim to pursue and fulfill it with faithfulness! Too long has my heart been in a slumber; God has woken it up! The cries of the lost and unsaved will not be ignored! Hearts will be healed, the fallen will be raised, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, and the world will have an oppurtunity to spend eternity with their Creator who long for them to come back home! I have said "Here I am Lord, send me, I'll go!!"

Matthew 28:19-20

Therefore go and make disciples of all naitions, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you....

Isaiah 6:8

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I sewnd? And who will go for us? And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
