Mission Possible the 12 Steps - Part 3
-1 We admitted that God was right and we were wrong. We could do this in His strength.
-2 We sought God in prayer not trying to figure out how any of this would come about.
-3 We asked a few trusted friends to pray too. We didn't ask their advice - just prayer.
-4 We got a passport in faith.
-5 We prayed about where we should go - did a little research online - and and kept the eyes of our heart open.
-6 We read the book of Acts with a new viewpoint.
-7 We looked for mission opportunities and local outreaches - maybe God would illuminate one of those?
-8 We spoke to others about their experiences on a mission trip.
-9 We asked God for specifics like where and when we were to go..
-10 Hopefully we've begun to grow a desire in our heart - looked with expectation for God to ignite a passion for a particular culture or country.
-11 We decided to make it a priority and find a trip that would work for us. We asked for prayer backing and financial support.
-12 We bought a ticket packed our bags - and said. "Oh God, what am I doing!"
Hopefully you had a chance to read Part 1 - Excuses for Not Going and Part 2 - Reasons to Go.
So, are you ready?
