I'm fired up! God has given us a clear vision for my World Care project...We are going to adopt a village in Malawi and put a well and irrigation system in it. Two weeks ago we took up a huge offering at MLC that has paved the way for this project. We couldn't do it without the leadership of Shawn Lovejoy and the commitment of the people at MLC to live like Jesus, love like Jesus, and leave what Jesus left behind. That's right we are going to change the world one village at a time.
Here is what I'm fired up about...I'm looking for twelve men to go with me to Malawi the first two weeks of September. I was having breakfast with my good friend and brand new passionate follower of Jesus Don Short the other day. He told me something that hit home...he said the reason he first went to Malawi was because I was going. That was six months ago...now Don is leading the way...he wants to spend two months of each year in Malawi...living, loving, and leaving.
It hit me during this conversation that I can't get complacent about investing my life in men. I must practice what I preach and write about...so here's the deal...
1) On May 30th Don and I are going to host a men's breakfast at his place...we are going to share the vision for what God wants to do in and through us and invite some of our friends to go to Malawi with us.
2) Through out the summer we are going to meet a number of different times to go over my book Breaking the Discipleship Code, prepare for our upcoming trip, and really connect with one another...it is going to be awesome...
All you have to do to qualify is be a risk taker and willing to be used by God to change the world.
