Because I'm a Missionary...

…my life has been an amazing experience;

…I have won many valuable friends;

…I have gained new understandings of familiar Bible passages;

…my attitude has changed toward…

            …my spouse, family, the church & fellow believers,

            …colleagues, friends and neighbors,

            …the lost around me and around the world;

…my understanding of…

            …government, laws, grace, life and death,

            …nature, the world and worldly relationships, have become much clearer;

…my daily routines, habits and decision-making have all changed dramatically;

…things such as money, cars, gadgets, internet, food and exercise have new meaning;

…time, health and life itself have become more precious;

…God has made me a willing partner in the ministry of Christ here on earth.

I look forward with great anticipation to continuing and expanding that partnership in the future! "To God be the glory; great things he hath done." I cannot begin to imagine what great things we will accomplish together with God and the redeemed of all ages in eternity!
