How many reading this are burdened to start a non-profit but lack the counsel to take the next step? I, for one, know of a number of individuals who feel God’s call to move in that direction but are stuck. Is that you?
STMs turning into long-term ministry
“Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins, you will raise up the age-old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell.” (Isaiah 58:12).
I just returned from a STM with Inca Link Peru (Christian and Missionary Alliance Church). I think AIM’s World Race folks are getting to Trujillo late August to do the same work we just helped with. But Inca Link finishes the week of work with a send-off and “pep-talk”, if you will. They inspire us to, once we get over the shock of returning to our home culture, resolve to serve and be light to our local community in daily life — not just wallowing in the idea of wanting to return to the “mission field.” I think that’s a huge way to help everyone realize we are each living in a mission field every day. Not only does this mindset help sustain God’s work through Inca Link, but it gets people pumped about being the hands and feet everywhere they are!
