“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
The scripture before us gives clear directives for this season we find ourselves in. A new day for us but not new to Jesus who has gone before us and is shining the Light of Truth, Hope and Love in the Samaria of the world.
How might we respond when we have been used to serving, training, accompanying and de-briefing 900 volunteers annually? When borders closed and the last registered volunteer was safely back in California, the Short-Term Mission(STM) office stood at the crossroads, discerned, prayed and listened for God’s guidance to shine a steady light on “the good way.” Not our human good way but The Godly good way for us to lean in and obediently “walk in” and facilitate movement with God’s ambassadors. Whether you are 9 years old, or 20 something or 60 something, the team at STM extends their hands along this new path. The STM community has not disappeared. We are alive and committed to being the hands and feet of Christ alongside partners and global servants with you.
All good ways for us who are passionate about God’s mission to ponder, welcome, lean in and boldly step in and remain guided by the Holy Spirit. All good ways to serve humbly and fully. Won’t you join us?
