The Influence of Presence

July 5th, 2012 by John

In the midst of some discouragements last week, Elaine and I were very encouraged. Drew Robertson was appointed a missionary to the Middle East by Converge Worldwide. He told us a story that surprised us. When he was a little boy he remembers meeting us at his home church of Monmouth Baptist Church, one of our smallest partnering churches. As part of a kids’ club assignment, he also remembers writing us when we were in Japan and we wrote him back and sent him a Japanese baseball card. This he said was at a time when God was speaking to him about missions. We had no idea about any missions influence we had many years ago. I would imagine that many of us do not realize the influence we have on those around us. May God continue to use us all for his Kingdom.
