Today, I am announcing that I will be packing my bags and heading to Russia, the Czech Republic and maybe Italy with my good friend Jim Liljegren of Encouragement International next March.
Jim and I have traveled the world together on two separate occasions. Jim is a missionary specializing in Church Planting in Eastern Europe. Each time I go with Jim I come back exhausted, but blessed. I have a real heart for the Eastern European people.
He and I have traveled to Russia, Moldova, and the Czech Republic together ministering to church planters, preparing the next generation of church leaders, and ministering to those who need to know Jesus.
I have been blessed to be able to travel the world since I was seventeen years old with the Continental Singers, International Interns, California Lutheran University, the Agape Singers and soon to be Encouragement International. As I pondered whether I felt God calling me back to the short-term mission field, I realized that God was laying a burden upon my heart. For several years, I began writing and taking photographs of ministry opportunities with the Agape Singers.
“God doesn't call the qualified. He qualifies the called.”
What an amazing thought. God calls us to Him and then He often asks us to step outside of our comfort zone. Sometimes it's local involvement. Sometimes its jet-setting across the globe. Wherever God calls you to minister, it is because He has gone before you.
I am excited about what lies ahead. I am working on a few projects in preparation for this trip, but more is to come. Stay tuned!
