Today Im priveledged to be a guest over at She Shares Ministries, writing about the importance of close range missions and caring for the needs in our immediate family of believers. I believe family comes first, above all other committments in our life; if someone is in need in our home, those needs are met while any other responsibilities fall second in line. From within a thriving, healthy family, love is able to be poured out in greater measure to the rest of the world.

Here is an exerpt from this message:

You don’t have to sail the seas

To get on your knees

And pray for the healing of others

You don’t even have to cross the county

To deliver a bounty

Of blessing to those in need

For the missions today

Is only a block away

To show this world the love of Christ

Let my hands and my feet

Demonstrate a sweet

Reflection of your unfailing love

Where movement marries zeal

An expression of love revealed

Where the Gospel is preached

By not words, but by deeds

And in the power of your name

Of which we are to proclaim

Blessings will abound and freedom will reign.
