Write The Vision. Make It Clear.

I've recently been reading Timothy and the beauty in the text
of Timothy is outstanding. Its truth has practically left
me on my back rather than my feet at times. However today
I'm brought to Proverbs and verse by verse, it just seems
to fly off the pages and grab at my heart. I've been asking
God for specific things as of late, and one of those things
has been a clear vision for Sons of God. I believe everyday
God is revealing new things for me to explore and he has
been bringing me to specific areas of which he's communicated
to me, in his Word, are his heart.

He's made it clear to me that he wants us to be the voice for
the disenfranchised, impoverished, enslaved, hungry, hurting,
and the persecuted (Proverbs 31:8-9)which I firmly believe
he is about to bring upon us; what more could we do than to
be the voice of those whom not have one?
It is also my/our desire to partner with organizations whose
aim are consistent with the desires placed upon us from our
God. Organizations including The Voice of The Martyrs, The
International Justice Mission, Invisible Children, Compassion
International, The Institute for Christian Resources,
Christian Solidarity Worldwide among others.

It's clear to me that in our goal to reach people, with the
exposure we may encounter and in our specific outreach design
(Luke 10:2) as missionaries it would benefit us to have less
and give more(Proverbs 30:8-9)(Deuteronomy 15:11). As Jesus
Followers, Christians, or whatever satisfies the heart that
knows we long to be like Jesus, we are simply obeying his
call and guide to us to go unto all Nations and preach the
gospel. The opportunity before us allows us the reality
to become rich, and also famous; rich in knowledge, love,
strength, wisdom, sacrifice, humility and fame to our King,

I long to educate the West about Christianity worldwide, the
witness of our brothers and sisters worldwide could have a
profound effect on the Western church. For example, the church
in China is flourishing now with millions of believers, and
sources estimate that on average 24,000 people accept Jesus
Christ every day! It would do some good to remind you all, this
is a Communist nation where Christianity and our practices are
outlawed; the church is underground, in a house group church
format! China is not resting, sending 100,000 missionaries
to the Middle East. To that I say amen, but I also count and know
the struggle they will undergo. I can only imagine in an area
like the middle east where the gospel is refuted as the ultimate
enemy verses Islam, many people will be entering a situation that
they know will be a one way journey.
My hearts leaps for them, that I may join them in the future and
wash the feet of many who have served this kingdom.

I'm so proud and honored to be a part of such a wonderful
revolution in partnering with Come and Live.
(Hebrews 12:1-3)

"In order to reach those that no one else is reaching, we’ll
have to do things that no one else is doing."
