If you read my blog entry yesterday you’ll understand a little of my philosophy of student missions. I love sending students out on missions, but I’d much rather see students living out the mission here. Both are important and should not be separated. In Acts 1:8, I believe, an “order” of witness was established. The Lord said we (Christians) will be His witness in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Uttermost (ends of the world).
As you read Acts, we see that this is exactly what happens (and in that order). So, application time. We ought to be witnesses in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth. It starts where you are.
So, the FoF (Faith on Facebook) challenge was issued.
Another thing that was “launched” this weekend was our support (mainly through Elisabeth) of charity water. We want our participants to know/understand that missions is not just here (our Jerusalem). I’ll probably make a separate post on this later. But please check out the website and educate yourself and/or check out this video below (note: this is just one country in Africa).
We want to give you the opportunity to support charity water and the efforts of Youthmark at the same time… this can lead to Everyday Evangelism! I will share about that in tomorrows post!
