" So I said, "What shall I do, Lord?" And the Lord said to me, "Arise and go... " Acts 22:10
When we have received the amazing gift of God's life and forgiveness, through the sacrifice and shed blood of Jesus, our next, and frequent question should be.. "What do I do now, Lord?"
For Gary and I, the answer is often... "Arise and Go.."
Obeying that answer, Gary went.... to India on a 3 week mission trip, which is two-thirds completed as I write this. His time in India is going well, as he encourages ministers and churches, and spies out the land to possibly do some eye clinics next year. He will be home for Thanksgiving.
This is the first time in 6 years that I have not gone with him on a trip. It has been a bit of an adjustment, but God sustains us... and being busy truly makes the time go quickly.
For those who have been praying - Thank you. Your love, prayers and support allows us to follow God's direction.
Have you asked Him that question lately?
Let us know what He answers.... it may be to go across the street, or to a co-worker. It is always a joy to follow our Father's voice.
Blessings as you go... Pat and Gary

Thanks for the good reminder that we ALL have a mission field, often right outside our house door, or office door (or cubicle entry!), or car window open to the drive through.ReplyDelete
We are all called to shine-shine-shine (sing it with me: "Brighten the corner where you are....!"
Amazing to note the 6-year mark, and also that 2 weeks of this trip have passed.
Continued prayer and blessings going your way for the last week!
