A missions conference that happens every 2 years. In a nutshell It is a time of being taught about, hearing examples of, praying for, and somehow one way or another being involved in missions. Thanks to our pastors, at the time Cpt. & Maj Smith’s, I got to go In December of 2012 with a friend of mine named Dylan. We met up with other people from the Salvation Army once there and it was a blast.
It was during the last meeting at Urbana that a small piece of paper was handed out with different questions and fill in the blanks. It was to challenge us if we where going to commit to the Lord by serving him through missions. 3 out of 4 fill in the blanks said:
Have you ever had lukewarm coffee? I’m having some right now and I don’t mind. I wonder if Jesus would have cared if he had lukewarm coffee. Kind of silly question and I think about that because whenever the word “lukewarm” comes to mind I think of that passage in Revelation 3:15-17
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Yesterday morning I was sitting in my car at 7:30 am thinking about the day of school ahead. I really just wanted to go back inside my house, get more coffee, knit and forget all the worries going on in my head. I was stressing and worrying about how Dan and I were going to come up with the money needed to finance our short term missions trip.
