What is the highest and best use of your life? Find out and go do it.
Jeff read the above statement a couple of days ago on a website of one of his favorite missionary authors. He was reminded of a verse he adopted as his own 'highest and best purpose' when he was a student at Ole Miss:
2 Timothy 2:2
You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.
Jeff has been in another South American country this week spending time with some of our missionary colleagues that we are blessed to serve in our role as team leaders. It has been a joy to hear their stories of what God has done and how God has used them to make His Name known. The stories of their faithfulness through challenging days has blessed us greatly. We have been humbled just being known as their friends and someone whom they trust. These past four years have certainly been the 'highest and best' use of our lives.
As we complete this term as missionaries here in South America we look back at an amazing journey full of incredible stories of how God has been faithful. He has been so faithful to send us so many of you out there who pray for us. We can never thank you enough. We owe you a huge debt.
We are committed to following the Lord's 'highest and best' calling on our lives. We ask that you would continue to pray for clarity in our understanding of how we can best serve our Lord. Pray that we will continue to find trustworthy people to teach so that they will teach others. Thank you for your partnership with us as you 'hold the rope.'
