So, I spent the weekend in Uganda. Now that’s something I never thought I’d say.
I was invited to be the guest speaker at the annual missionary retreat for Wesleyan Missionaries who serve in Africa. Not a large group but they came from all over the continent to be together with others who had a common mission and shared a common vision. A mission and vision to make a difference in the lives of people who don’t know Jesus.
There were doctors and nurses, teachers and administrators and their children. Men and women, married couples and singles. All of them could have been working in their professions in North America for more money and been closer to their families. Instead, they chose to be obedient to a call from Jesus to serve the least and the lost and the lonely.
And for three days I had the opportunity to speak into their lives. There could have been no greater honour for me to serve and no place I’d rather have been than being allowed to be a part of their mission and to share their vision, if only for 72 hours.
They made a difference in my life and I hope that I made a difference in theirs.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible
