Over the last few weeks we have traveled ALOT! Every two years Campus Crusade for Christ holds their U.S. Staff Conference in Colorado. This is an important time for the missionaries under Campus Crusade to be encouraged and "fed" before returning to their ministries. To be honest, we were dreading going. As you know, we have not reported to our "assignment" and since Michael has now stopped working, we are working harder than ever to raise our support so that we can do what God has called us to do. All that said though, our time in Colorado was so necessary! We were able to see and understand the other campus ministries better, and see first hand how many lives have been changed. Amazing!
We have to admit that we both had times of feeling convicted. Are we doing enough? Are we taking advantage of the opportunities that we are given daily to share Christ with others? I would say, NO. We must be willing, at every moment, to step out of our comfort zone and share God's truth with the lost.
My prayer over these past weeks has been, "Lord, grieve my heart for what grieves yours, and help me to be sensitive to your spirit as I walk through life. Give me boldness in you, and a willingness to do what you need done."
