Recently in Harvest Fest, a major city wide missions conference, it was very interesting to meet the directors of very small missions of only two to ten people -- missions in Mexico, Peru, and Haiti.
All were started as a result of a passion for the gospel and compassion for a certain aspect of society or need. As I spoke with each director, it was exciting to hear of their vision!
Some of us have been in ministry for many years. Do we still have the glow, the passion for when we first started our work? Is there not any new area of ministry of need you should not consider starting? Is there not anything still waiting for us to do? Have we forgotten what is to step forward in faith, even though it would be considered small?
