I spoke at Pendleton United Methodist Church and shared about what I had been doing in Moz since my last visit, why I'm giving my life away to serve His people, and what I'm up to for this next year. PUMC is always a joy to go visit and speak at cause it's the church I grew up in since I was 2. My parents and sister still attend there and in typical small town church fashion, I know the majority of the members. For such a small church, they support me in a big way and for that I'm blessed and thankful.
A few weeks ago I got to speak at Fellowship Bible Church here in Nashville. They are my home church and have supported me before I left and continue to support me. I love the heart of that church! I was blessed to get to speak in a capacity I rarely get to speak in....they asked me to speak to the 1st grade classes during their 4 services as they had been doing a whole unit on missionaries, other countries, and God's heart for missions. So I prepared a small slide show to visually show the kids how the life of the kids in Moz greatly differs from their own lives here. Then I shared the heart of God for their brothers and sisters in Christ and encouraged them to find their own mission field here in Nashville, in their own neighborhoods and schools and to live out this verse (one of my favs):
