Monday Morning Message, January 14, 2013
Since that first basketball trip to Mombasa, Kenya, the Lord has been gracious in allowing me to be part of eight more teams in sharing God’s love. Not a day goes by that I do not think of many of those teammates and the people we were able to touch with the message of the Gospel.
MAKE SURE THERE IS A CLEAR PURPOSE FOR THE TRIP. This should be easily explained and it should encompass more than, “we are going somewhere to play a sport”. If the trip will not involve openly sharing the Gospel message visually or verbally, think twice before jumping in.
Matthew 28:19-20 (RSV) “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”
