I don't think of believers in other countries very often. God's people, called out from those around them to be pinpricks of light. Often they are abused and persecuted for following His call. What would it be like? To live surrounded by spiritual darkness, working faithfully to spread light--yet seeing little fruit? If any! Been convicted lately that I should be praying for these places and people. Much more than I do.
After all, who knows which of us might find ourselves in similar situations someday? Our lives are not our own. God could use any of us in any way He chooses. Amazing. Maybe a little scary?

missionary. CRIWIKEEE (trying to somehow spell it the way the croc hunter says it). that would be amazing and yet scary. i really want to experience something like that. i don't know when or how. just want to.

Me too. Whenever I am tempted to be discontent here I remind myself that I am a missionary here in America.

How true! Yet, it's still just as important to spread the light here as well! But how easy it is to put aside as something that need not be done... let that be far from us!!

AMBERLEEEEEE!!!! oh my lanta do i miss ya'll crazy metro people.

yeah, our mission field is most def where ever God has us. (canada or america whatev the case is). so i was just thinking i really ought to not neglect praying for others in other places. while spreading the gospel here.

can't wait till someday...
