We are going

Over the past 5 months God has made it abundantly clear
that the Great Commission laid out in Matthew 28:19-20
is not something we as a family can take lightly.

"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

So we are going.
Because Jesus said to.
It’s as simple as that.

2/3rds of the world's people don’t know Jesus.
And approximately 1.6 billion people have never heard the Gospel.
Not even one time.

And if we don’t go to
tell them
love them
serve them
who will?

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:14-15

Stay tuned tomorrow and the next day to see where we are going :)
