Going some place, that’s what missions is… The Bible doesn’t say God so loved the world He sent and offering or He sent an email… He sent a person! He sent a physical warm body cross culture to love on them

They still worshiped 22 Inca god’s… even occasional human sacrifices… so Moses preached the gospel and the local religious leaders didn’t want that and order to stone Moses to death… when I heard the story I thought that’s like the book of Acts!

I made it my mission to study my dad… to predict my dad… I had to reverse engineer a lot of the way that we do things in church… If anybody is serving their pastor, their main job objective is to understand their pastor’s heart… get a PhD. in knowing your pastor, it will make you a better leader
