Missions Outreach - Lance Stoddart

It was interesting that Lance said that the purpose of short term missions, in many cases, is more for the team ministering than the people in the foreign country or mission field. That really resonated with me. The two missions trips I have been on, Nicaragua and Peru, have been like that. Those two trips really changed my perspective on missions; the importance etc.

As important as it is to walk in Christ; it is just as important to share that experience with others.

"Compensating for spiritual issues is not the same thing as being set free."

The Christian standard is measured by our obedience to God. That is my MO as a be obedient.

Something that I will really take away from this morning is Lance's passion for ministry and not necessarily just missions. Am I called to full-time missions? At this point and time in my life I would say no. But I am called to ministry and that passion is so important and is something I so desire for God to really birth in me.
