  • Follow Christ’s order to get out and go to all ends of the earth

    One of my fellow church members left his family last week and went to work on an orphanage in Haiti.
    Last Sunday at church, a very close friend and preacher visited and spoke about his decision for he and his wife to sell all of their possessions and move closer to the front of the mission field in Mexico, where they will serve in their later years (They are in their late 50s.)
    Folks, this is not what special Christians do. This is what our Lord Jesus commands you and I to do.
