I really enjoyed last night's prayer meeting, exhausted though I was. Really enjoyed. Hearing the leaders' hearts for GFA and the beginning reports of the 2008 fruit from the mission field reminded me of why I came to GFA six years ago. I sat there, challenged, as John praised God for the growth in the ministry this year and asked us to pray for an even greater increase next year.
"It's not so we can have some really cool annual report. It's so we can train more workers and we can drill more Jesus Wells and help more kids and send more missionaries and do more things that are going to see 700 million people reached with the Gospel.
I'm convinced that the Lord loves the people of Asia. And as long as it's true that every time my heart beats, somebody plunges into hell without ever hearing our Savior's name and if it's true that he left the glories of heaven to come to earth to seek and to save that which was lost, then I know that he'll respond [to our prayers]."
To you, my readers: we have the privilege of laboring to reach the half of the world that has never heard the name of Jesus. Thank you for laboring alongside me with your prayers and support!
