Heeding the Call
“Call” tends to be one of those cheesy Christian words that people use. “Are you called? Has Jesus called you to Himself?” As much as we have culturalized it, calling is biblical. God has called each of us.
Today was packed with activities that showed us Jesus’ calling to us. This morning we headed out to Section 19, one of the poorest communities in the entire Kingdom of Swaziland. After attending kids’ bible church, we were able to share playtime with the children with stickers, bubbles, soccer and beach balls! We had a blast!
We then traveled to some of our missionary friends’ properties to have another children’s church. While there we were able to hear their story and of their plans for a medical clinic. We know they will be touching the lives of many in Tshaneni. We also prayer walked their property, praying for wisdom and love over them. After wearing ourselves down with more play, we went back, rested up, and went to Vuvulane for revival. What a sweet time! God is moving in Vuvulane! In Swaziland!
- Church tomorrow. All three northern churches will be coming together for service, and we pray for a sweet time with our friends!
- Bittersweetness. Tomorrow our friends, the Allens and the Poes will be leaving us behind. Pray for their safety as they embark on their own travels, and for their last sweet moments in Swaziland.
- Rest. We are exhausted. As we go to Kruger, pray for us to rest and to connote to grow as a team!
“Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take us his cross and follow me!’” (Matthew 16:25, ESV)
We ARE called. We are called to leave it behind for Jesus. We are called to pick up our cross. We are called to leave behind comfort. Family. Friends. Relationships. Ambition. Success. Country. Citizenship.
Jesus is worth it.
Going to the Well,
