Jesus wants us to live lives that are no less dramatic and miracle-filled than his disciples. Our young missionaries in Africa experience this reality all the time. For example, World Racer Austin Robertson wrote this blog yesterday.

Ministry in Africa is
incredible. This past week has been crazy. Something happens every
single day where you feel like you’re living in New Testament times. 

Just today my friend Tyler was able to pray for a woman for her sight to
be restored, and when she pulled her hands away, her eyesight improved.

He also had about 25 kids following him around to every single house
that he went and mothers handing him their crying babies.

It’s been a similar story for me. As we’re going from house to house
sharing about Christ, we are seeing people come to a faith in Christ
every day. We are praying for miraculous healings. We are praying
against evil things in the spiritual world. We are praying for mountains
to move!! 

Here is a story from this past week that illustrates the things
that the Lord has us doing here. 

Stephen
is a 17 year old orphan from the eastern part of Kenya. His parents
owned a store there when he was a child. When he was 8, a group
of raiders came into the store, stole all the goods, and murdered his
parents. His uncle was the only one who could take him in. Thankfully he
did, but his uncle just recently died of tuberculosis. This left
Stephen with absolutely nothing and nowhere to go.          

He’d jumped on the back of a truck and traveled around 17 hours to Kitale.
He’d spent the previous night on the street and some random (or not so
random) kid on the street told him about a school that might take him
in…the school where we were working.

 
He only has the clothes he’s wearing and a
school ID from where he went while his uncle was alive. He said if he’s
not allowed to attend, he’ll likely live on the streets. Stephen’s faith
is amazing though. He knows the Lord and the truth that Lord has huge
plans for him.
 
He was telling me how he knows that no matter where he ends up,
that the Lord is going to use him in big ways. Yes he is. I prayed for
him and that the Lord would provide. It’s not a sure thing yet, but it
looks as though the school is going to allow him in.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
