Did you say 200 people?

Commissioning Service at Crossings Community Church OKC

At last month’s commissiong service Pam

Millington read the following story:

When William Carey, known as the father of modern missions went to India, his friend and fellow pastor, Andrew Fuller, agreed to stay behind and raise support for the effort.

Fuller described what happened: “We saw that there was a gold mine in India, but it seemed almost as deep as the center of the earth. Who will venture to explore it? ‘I will go down,’ said Mr. Carey to his brethren, ‘but remember that YOU must hold the ropes.’’

Well, it’s time to start holding those ropes. I found out today that 200 people want to take English classes. That’s a little overwhelming. I know that “problems are opportunities for God to work” . . . but really. God, it’s time for You to pull a miracle off.

Pray that God will give me direction and inspiration in this area.

Being home is great and I’ve really enjoyed making memories with Sarah and Daniel: trips to Dallas/Fort Worth on the train, days at the zoo, Shakespeare in the Park, Settlers of Catan.

Working on Spanish.

Three wonderful women have stepped up to encourage and help me as I continue to work on my Spanish. Please lift Diana, Blanca, and Maria up in your prayers. I certainly have new empathy for adults struggling to learn a second language.

Blanca y Maria, mis tutoras

Date of Departure – October 9th!
