It’s about Relationships

I have heard it said by many that religion is man seeking God but being a Christ follower is a personal relationship with Jesus. Do you have a personal relationship with Christ? If you do, then you can share that relationship with others just as you tell a friend about someone you just met.

Responding to Disasters to Share Christ

As a member of the Texas Baptist Men’s disaster relief shower and laundry unit in Austin, I am often called out to help those who have faced a traumatic event in their lives.

Discipling for Christ

Christ discipled those who followed Him and they learned from Him how to make disciples of others. He taught them how to have a missions lifestyle.

Meeting Physical Needs

Remember how the men and women who followed Jesus attended to his physical needs—whether it was a place to stay or food to eat or giving Him time to rest. These followers were all in for following Christ and living for Him. Perhaps, they were the first Adults on Mission™.

Call to Refocus

“How are you?’ the teacher asked.

“Ready to go home.” I had been at work for an hour and felt defeated already.

WMU Wins Souls for Christ

I’ve worked with WMU for several years. I attended several leadership conferences, and I was a workshop leader representing Sisters Who Care. During one conference, Ms. Chocolate spoke about the needs of children in her community.

Changing Focus to Receive God’s Strength

My husband was rushed to the hospital December 4, 2015. He was vomiting “old blood.” Each time the doctor cleared Darrell’s stomach then fed him through his peg tube, Darrell aspirated. The surgeon couldn’t replace the peg with a J-tube due to gastric problems, aspiration, and chronic vomiting.

UNEXPECTED CALL TO MISSIONS

“You’re a dutiful wife,” one nursing home resident said, noting that I visited Darrell daily. Her comment increased my awareness of the other residents. I started encouraging and loving each resident, winking at some, and promising to take care of the nurses if any of them were mistreated.

Missing my Dear Friend

I miss her. I do. I miss my dear friend.

We did everything together. Our kids were best friends. We celebrated birthdays together, holidays.

Leaving a Bible in Africa

I went to hear our church missions team report on their Africa trip. Viewing their pictures, hearing about the lions calling out to each other near their living quarters, discovering how the monkeys stole their shampoo and soap in the outdoor showers, and listening to their plans to return was amazing.

Every detail intrigued my heart.
