NEWS FROM THE FIELD
We want to share a very exciting update from our July Mission Trip that just ended. We had 38 on this youth trip with two churches from the US represented. The group did dramas and ministered 15 times in 13 schools and twice in one park. They did street evangelism, went to the general hospital and prayed bed to bed for the sick, passed out coffee and bread to those waiting in the emergency area, and did an outreach with children that work in the city dump. A total of 4645 children, youth, and adults were ministered to with 2032 of those receiving salvation, 6 reconciliations and 5 filled with the Holy Spirit. All glory be to God for all that He did through and to these youth and adults. We also had 3 night services in a local church.

The definition of the word commission is, "The act of granting certain powers and authority to carry out a particular task or duty...."
So who has been commissioned? ALL who call Jesus their Lord and Savior! No one is exempt, but each will fulfill this calling in many different ways. Everyone is not called to be a missionary, the same as not everyone is called to be a pastor or even a business owner. We all have a path to walk in this world and the manner that we walk that path is a huge part of how we will fulfill our part of the commission.
Charles Spurgeon made a bold statement; he said, "Have you no wish for others to be saved, then you are not saved yourself, be sure of that." The burning desire for others to be saved, comes from the love of God that we are filled with when we become believers, followers of Christ. True Christianity is not about being saved and then becoming a seat warmer at your local church. It's much bigger and requires us to give this so called life we have in exchange for the abundant life God has promised. As we live that abundant life and stay true to the path God puts us on, we become a beacon of hope, a light in a dark place to a lost and dying world.
We can read six times in five different chapters on God's commission, His command for us to go and reach His lost children:
Six times God said GO but yet many are still waiting to feel led. I have a friend who if I said his name and mentioned his cartoon, most would know of him. He is a great example of living his God given dreams, being obedient to what God shows him he is to do and is for sure a light to many in this dark world. God wants the same from each of us. Wherever we are in life and whatever we are doing, we must become a light to those that are around us. We must find a way RIGHT NOW through our daily living that we can bring Christ to those that don't know Him.
I will end with this: John 3:16 (AMP) "For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life." Jesus gave all so we could have all BUT the only way the world will hear is IF we will all do our part!
