This Way or that Way. JULY 01 2020
“ Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” Amos 3:3 NKJV.
One of the things that I have learned in my service with Avant is that in working in teams we can learn from each other. Missionaries are dedicated and determined individuals with strong personal convictions. Otherwise we would not have considered full time religious work in the first place.
Once we are on the field in the midst of Satan’s territory, the battle grows intense and our faith is genuinely tested. Usually it is not a question of our theology or doctrinal stance, but one of methodology Orr the approach to the task before us. One feels we ought to go this way. But someone else things we should go that way.
After prayer , usually much prayer and considering others better than ourselves we unite in a plan. In the process it may be found that all were wrong, and that God had all the while the best plan, and the work went forward.
As I am getting ready to retire, I look back in admiration and respect for all my fellow missionaries. Not one of us is perfect, and we all have had our backs against the wall at some point in our lives. Missionary work is tough and we have to work together.
🙏. Father God I thank You for the people You are calling to serve with Avant. None of them are perfect but they all want to obey and do Your will. Strengthen them and keep them. May they be a light for Jesus and it is in His name that I pray.
