This journey for us has been a good one in many respects. One of the most enjoyable portions of my time of transition has been the people Our Heavenly Father has placed in my path. One such person is a guy who left a significant income stream to dedicate himself to international missions. The difference in his story to me is he didn't leave the US to do so.....He and his family are reaching the international community in East Tennessee. He sold his home and scaled-down their lifestyle to self-fund the ministry. He sends a monthly newsletter with updates and financial transparency unlike any other missionary I've ever met.
I had the opportunity to speak with him via a teleconference and must say, his courage and confidence in the sustaining power of Jehovah Jireh far exceeds what I though I had. In essence, he and his family are taking the Bible literally and focusing only on the mission of spreading the gospel of Christ. His "cushy" income and corporate benefits are all a thing of the past. They rely on a part-time job he holds down while also ministering to those he believes needs to hear the Good News we have to share. Much like a lone sailboat with no engine, only sails, he and his family are waiting for the wind to blow and then utilizing what they have to make their way. That total reliance is very scary but I'll assure you when you're humbly seeking G-d's will, your reliance will become a passion you will not easily compromise.
If you would like to know more about him and his ministry, send me a message and I'll email his info to you.
