That's amazing. I am a Compassion fan. I think every day that I would love to go to Africa and do missions work. Don't know if it'll ever happen but if I'm called I'd go. Great video Brant.

We all are. "Called" that is. Don't you think?

Thank you so much for sharing!

While we are obviously not all called to do directly, I get your point. Our sponsored child lives in Hondurus. He is fortunate to have both parents at home with him. He loves going to the Compassion center after school to play, get help with homework and learn about Jesus. He loves Jesus! I'd love to visit him someday. My sister's child lives in the Dominican Republic so we might travel together at some point.

You mean all called to go to Africa or all called to go out and tell the world about Christ? Not everyone is called to be a missionary. Some are called to be teachers, some preachers, some healers, some missionaries, etc, etc, etc. It's the "What is my calling?" game for me right now. Because I look at all that God can use me for and I think I can go to Africa. I can heal the sick. I can preach on a street corner or in a church. I can teach 9th graders. I can, I can, I can because I'm young and because I'm single and because God will use me. But I know that God won't use me to do all that stuff so it's more of trying to figure out what that one thing is that he really wants me to do. What's my area of specialties if you will. Right now I am a jack of all trades and a master at none.

I think God would be happy to "use [you] for all that stuff," Mustard. Maybe doing all that is what it means to love God with all your heart, mind, and strength. (To whom much has been given, much is required. Look at Shawn. He uses many gifts to serve God in many different ways. If you have gifts in all those areas, use them all! Are all prophets, teachers, etc? No, but some are many of those things.)

I heard a missionary recently speak about being "called." He said that when he went to be interviewed by the IMB to go to Africa (don't remember which country), and they asked him to tell them about his calling, he said, "I read Matthew 28." They were like, "No, you don't understand. Tell us about your specific calling to go." He said, "I read Matthew 28." He said they finally just decided to get him out of this country and send him to Africa. Anyway, "go."

I agree, Shawn (but what do I know?), that we're all called to go. I had a friend in college who was over our missions program, and she said, "Go, unless you're called to stay."

How come watching a guy play with a soccer ball with a bunch of Kenyan kids makes me cry?
