We are about one month away from our Send Me Home and I am getting excited. The shepherds have encouraged us to be a part of this work and many of you have already decided you will participate, and that is so encouraging. We have experienced folks and 7th graders that will be working together in our community.

We are ALL trying to learn to become more comfortable with talking about Jesus to others in this city. We must be those who are moving closer and closer to that level of confidence that will allow us to be the messengers of the gospel of Christ. God can help any of us that may struggle with fears, or lack of knowledge.

And if you are not going to be able to participate in this work, during the week of the campaign, then please take up the great, and needed, work of prayer for those who will be going. Pray and pray some more. God hears our crying. He responds to our pleas. He is willing to be involved where we call on him to act.

This is not a one time event at which we are aiming, but a transition from being only concerned about what happens inside this place, and becoming more and more concerned about those who are outside of Jesus. To find them, we have to go out to them. May God lead us to people that need to hear something from Him.
