Here Am I

20140312-150627.jpg

In the last 6 months I have been in 3 countries, 8 airports, 5 time zones and there are a few more to add to that list before I get back to Scotland.

I have spoken (often poorly) three different languages, made friends from at least 8 different nations, developed connections all over world.

I have read the bible at least twice through from start to finish, completed my first week long fast (on the second attempt…), preached my first Sunday sermon.

I have received revelation on an almost daily basis, cried more than I ever thought possible (yes, even for me), fallen more in love with Jesus every moment.

I got sick a lot, I faced my own (very slight) form of persecution, I learned how to die to myself. I’m still learning.

I witnessed countless people say YES to Jesus, loved the lost, prayed for the sick and cast out demons – in HIS name.

There were days when I thought I wouldn’t make it, days when I wasn’t even sure I was really a Christian, days when I didn’t think I was up to the task. But every day, Jesus is worthy.

Looking back, I just experienced the most difficult 6 months of my life. It also happened to be the most rewarding. So I’ve committed the rest of my life to more of the same.

Full-time missions. I am ready.

Here am I. Send me.

SEND ME TO KOREA

“Whatever God does endures forever;

nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it.”
– Ecclesiastes 3:14 –

Amen!

What God has done over the past 6 months of my life is nothing short of miraculous. I have been changed, shaken, challenged, stretched and so much more. But more than that, I have fallen more in love with Him than I ever imagined possible. As I take the time to process everything that has happened during this season of my life – an immense task, to say the least – I am blessed beyond belief by God’s faithfulness and goodness. He has brought be so far from where I was before.

I used to have a problem with changes and endings. They depressed me. Now, when I think of my DTS coming to an end, I am simply overwhelmed by everything I have been allowed to experience during this time. Of course I am sad that I have to say goodbye(for now) to some new friends and leave the community that I have become so connected to, but I know that God is moving me on to bigger things – and to more intimacy with Him.

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do:forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anythingyou think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained.” (Philippians 3:12-16)

I am pressing on. There is so much more that the Lord wants to reveal to me and wants me to do in the next season. He is calling me in this next season to run harder, devote myself to full-time missions and to become even more grounded in His love and truth. I am already planning my next trip which will be to South Korea in May for a month long tour with GX International.

I used to be fearful and full of doubt and anxiety about my future but now I am certain of God’s plan for me and that He Himself is committed to seeing me fulfil the calling He has given me. He created me to partner with Him in ministry and I could not be more excited to go hand-in-hand with Him into the nations, trusting and believing that He will take care of all my worries along the way. He is my provider and my comforter and it is my hearts desire and purpose to serve Him.

But, if I am to ‘Go’ and make disciples in the nations then I must be sent by those who God has called to partner with me. So many people were so generous in providing finances for me to come on DTS and I thank God for each of you. Now though, I am committing myself to a life of full-time missions. Travelling to Asia to preach the gospel, share the love of God and help to train and equip people to fulfil their own callings. In order to be able to do this, I need people to commit to labouring with me long-term by providing prayer covering and financial support.

If you feel that the Lord is leading you to come alongside me in this then please get in touch. I would love to arrange a meeting – whether face-to face or through Skype/Facetime – to discuss my plans and ways that you can be involved.

Jehovah Jireh is faithful to provide for the work He has called me to.

For HIS Glory!
