The Call

As I was reading Matthew 9:36-38 one day in 2014, I started praying to the Lord of the Harvest for laborers.  I was thinking younger men, however God spoke to me very clearly, “Will you go?”.   I was caught off guard, however as I thought how good, gracious, and merciful He has been to me, I said, “Yes Lord, I will go”.  This was the first of many times the Lord made it clear to me He was calling me to go, not just send.  Later that year we went to China and I knew this is where we would go.  In this same year we took our oldest daughter to PCC for her second year, and it was in the opening church services that the Pastor was speaking on the life of Moses and he challenged us all that we need more preachers.  I am sure the Pastor was speaking to the young college students, however God was speaking and calling me to preach.  I surrendered to preach at that time.  Rebecca and I continued to serve in various ways at Vision over the next two years, we have a great church, live in a great place and I have a great job that pays well.  However I knew God was calling us to go, I continued to serve and pray, until both Rebecca and I surrendered to go at the end of 2016.  We are excited to use the gifts and abilities that God has given us to evangelize the lost, start churches and train men in China.
