Preparing for Mission – a missionary in the making!

By 21/03/2013Mission

I humbly write these following thoughts with great humility but exceeding joy.

My writing will be simple and to the point.

With great boldness and Joy I am delighted to say that I believe God is calling me to be a missionary overseas. My greatest hearts desire is to see people come to know Jesus and to see Christ formed in them through the teaching of the Word of God.

I very much love reading the bible everyday and one of my dreams is to give people the opportunity to do this by practically by providing them with a physical bible in their own language.

The motto “To know Christ and make Christ Known” has really blessed me and encouraged me greatly over recent months. I thank Bath CU for introducing me to it! What greater endeavour could a man do with his life than live it for Jesus and tell others about Jesus!

I believe God is calling me to first go to Africa where I grew up. I love Kenya but I really have central Africa on my heart. If it is God’s will Eastern DRC Congo! BUT it must be the Lords will and way. I personally know the importance of walking in his will and will only do this from now on!

Right from the start though I want to make it really clear that I do not want to make me famous or big but only Jesus. So I am going to go big and bold for Christ unashamedly. I only want to make Jesus famous not me. Oh Lord hold me to these words as I can be so arrogant especially in my mind!

Christ must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30

This has always been a scripture that encourages me to keep giving Jesus the Glory.

Not unto us, O Lord , not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake. (Psalms 115:1 KJV)

So I am going to document my thoughts here on my blog for others to pray for me and offer me counsel and encouragement.

I have currently put in my application for the Onesimus Program at HTCD and they have accepted me onto the program and will be walking with me through this calling. Oh how exciting this is.

Jesus thank you!
