Today marked another milestone in my journey as a missionary. During this morning’s service at my church in San Antonio, Westside Fellowship, I was ordained and commissioned as a missionary to Honduras.
I have always felt something very special when people lay hands on me when they pray for me. Today was no different. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s just a very special and humbling experience to have your church family surrounding you and either laying a hand on you or extending their hand toward you if they can’t actually reach you. I am grateful for my church family and for the privilege we have of going directly to our Father in prayer, knowing that His answer will be the best answer.
It was a bittersweet time, of course, knowing it will likely be more than a year before we will see each other again. On the other hand, I know I’m doing what God desires and His plan is so much better than I could ever think or imagine.
So, as I complete my final tasks in Texas, I look forward with great eagerness to my work in Tegucigalpa. I am very eager to see what God will do.
I am exceptionally grateful for all of you who committed this morning to “hold the rope” for me as I serve in Honduras. I need your prayers, your words of encouragement, your financial contributions, and any other help God prompts you to provide. You are now my partners in ministry and I value you immensely. May God bless you more than you could ever imagine!
