Be a Missionary Day 8

Shawn sent me a text message that they returned to their hotel around 3 a.m. after another great day. I can't wait to hear about the trip. I was planning to leave town on Sunday to attend the National Worship Leader Conference in Kansas City, but Shawn asked me to wait until Monday so that he could tell me all the stories about the trip. I am so excited that he and Grace got to share this opportunity. It will be something special they will share for the rest of their lives.

The team begins the long trek home today. They are stopping in Victoria to do some prison ministry, so it may be a late night before they are back across the border. Pray for their protection as they drive. Pray for the drivers to be alert after an exhausting week.

Day 8

The trip home has begun. Now you are finally sitting still, able to begin processing all that you have seen God do this week. In John 10:4-5, Jesus talks about Himself as a shepherd leading His sheep “After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they recognize his voice.

God walked in front of you every step of the way this week. He prepared the way for you, maybe even through some steep, rough terrain, just like a shepherd. He guided every event that occurred.

Take some time today to remember how God walked ahead of you. How did he prepare you for this journey? How did he lead you this week? What did you see him do? Give Him some praise for all that you saw this week.

Remember the story earlier this week of Joshua setting up the 12 stones as a reminder of what God had done for the Israelites? Share with others about how you saw God at work. It is only as you share with each other that you will grasp a full picture of all the great things God did this week.
