I want to go into the mission field as soon as I can. When I graduate college. Or before. Whatever I do, I WILL go to a long-term mission trip before I am 25, before I am married, before I graduate med school. Cambodia and Malaysia are the two countries that press the most in my heart.
Did you know there are only about 100,000 missionaries in the field right now? And that only 3% of those missionaries get to the “unreached” people. That really shocked me; how little people have trekked to the truly dark areas of the world to spread Jesus’s love and light. One phrase really got to me. I can’t remember it exactly, or who it was from, but it goes something like this.
‘What will you be doing for the rest of eternity? What will the unreached do for the rest of eternity?’
I teared up, thinking of my blessings, and was reminded again of my selfishness and immaturity in the subject of God’s grace and His love.
I need to stop taking for granted the multiple Bibles laying around my home openly.. And the freedom of speech I am granted in my country.. And the churches available. And everything else. And I need to start thinking about those who can only dream of a blessing that my life is. About those who have never heard the name of their Creator before.
Agh.. My feelings, hahaha! God is stirring the flames in my heart.
Anyways I basically want to be a better bearer of good news, a better light unto the world, ya know. Shenanigans.
