Hey just wanted to write a brief update…
It’s rewarding to see the potential for missionaries using the film we gift to highlight who they are and what they do. Two short video’s have been completed. We are waiting on completed edit. While in Costa Rica we filmed Thebackwardsmissionaries.com
Our heart is to equip, train and encourage wherever we are located and go. We are practitioners not just theorist. I do more than travel to encourage missionaries; this is just a part of what we are doing. We are learning and growing even at our age.
Worship a key that unlocks our hearts…
I was worshiping and felt so small, so young, I asked Jesus, “Why?” Reply, “Because you are eternal.” Yep, much pondering on this statement happened.
I was worshiping a while ago, and I felt a nudge, a whisper… “Steve, if this was the only thing you did …. would it be enough?”
I sat in silence for some time then replied, “I want you to be enough. I’m so driven. I don’t know. Help me to allow you to be enough.”
I walked away from that moment forever changed.
Worship is our number one way of expressing our heart to Jesus. As we worship He appears. Sue Ranaldi, a worship leader in the UK once said, “Worship is the scene of His appearing.”
Number two way, is serving others. Both sacrifices are pleasing to HIm. (Hebrews 13)
We sing … more than enough… but really, is He? When I remember this encounter I cease striving. I pause. I reflect. In eternity He will be more than enough… I’m learning to practice making Him so here.
More to follow.
I head to the UK Monday for 3 weeks, and yes another video guy is going, thanks to the partnership support I’m receiving. His first out of the country mission. Excited for him.
He will be filming Overtoun House and Bob and Melissa Hill.
I’ll be in Warrington, England for a couple of weeks with Mike and Jane McMahon training and encouraging before heading north.
Last thought. Times are a changing: partnership and support come from relationships with ones being sent.This includes churches and individuals. We are grateful for those we know, or we have known, who help us do what we do.
We are so grateful,
Steve and Pattie
