VOICES OF THE FAITHFUL IN MY CIRCLE

One of my favorite devotionals is titled, “Voices of the Faithful” by Beth Moore and Friends.  It is a 366-day call to missions!  Beth Moore writes the introduction to each month’s devotions but the daily entries are written by different missionaries serving on the international field.  I recently have been given the opportunity to join a writing team for a local neighborhood newsletter.  The column is called “Mission Moments” and I have the blessing of being the Resident Reporter!   “Mission Moments” tells the stories that our neighbors have lived while on mission for God’s Kingdom, which may be international, stateside, or simply city wide.   Oswald Chamber’s writes, “We tend to forget that the one great reason underneath all missionary work is not primarily the elevation of the people, their education, nor their needs, but is first and foremost the command of Jesus Christ-“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”(Matt 28:19)  A different neighbor will be featured in each month’s edition.  The purpose in sharing their stories is to magnify the Name of Jesus through their obedience to the call to make disciples of all nations.   FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD!  Prayerfully, these testimonies from the mission field will inspire and encourage our neighbors to respond by seeking the Lord for themselves and then joining HIM on mission in their city, nation and across the globe and if they are already “responding”,  may they feel the nudge to share their stories!  

While I will be interviewing 12 different “resident missionaries” per year to publish their God adventures in the Downtown Living newsletter, I started thinking how cool it would be to share more of your stories through the blog.  While the newsletter features only those living in a specific neighborhood, the blog can contain stories from anywhere:)  I would love for y’all to partner with me in blogging “VOICES OF THE FAITHFUL IN MY CIRCLE”.   If the Holy Spirit nudges, please share your mission stories: when and where did you go? Why did you go-what lead you to go? what did the Holy Spirit reveal to you while you were there and how has that experience changed your life and the lives of those around you?  Do you feel the Lord calling you somewhere else anytime soon?  Please email me your stories and pictures at katiewilson40@gmail.com.  I want to follow in the format of the devotional, VOICES OF THE FAITHFUL, and share YOUR stories as devotionals, pulling out HIS-STORY, through yours here on the psalm8110 blog.  Our faith stories lead others to HIM for themselves and that is the essence of a life well lived-one that simply points others to know, love, serve and share Christ!
