I pretend I would be this incredible missionary and bring the "Good News" to people around the world world. I pretend I would be able to live in exotic places and walk around in peaceful and beautiful surroundings sharing my "Worldly and Godly Wisdom" to those who know no better. I am naive.
I have a dear friend, Jami and her husband Brian, that after years of knowing and wanting to minister to missionaries and people in Africa, finally made it. She has a blog and been sharing her journey of getting to that place. Please take a moment or two to read her compelling latest entry. She and her family are truly on the front lines.
I realize that it takes very special people to missionary work and as sad as I feel, I am not one of them.
