“God’s kingdom will come” was a statement made by Rev. Marsha Scipio when she preached in January 2019 while on a short-term mission trip in Malaysia.
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be expected.” (Luke 12:48, CSB) I had always thought the “much” Luke describes was money but over the past three days God had gently, and not-so-gently taught me that it meant so much more… Each of us are called to share what we have been given whether it is time, financial resources, or prayer. We are the ones who have been given and entrusted with much and that “much” is the Gospel message. It is love. It is faith. What will you give?
Short-Term missions are transformative. One prepares emotionally, spiritually and physically for cross cultural immersion before departing. Then faces a re-entry process with its own time line. The Short-Term Mission team at IM can gently walk alongside you and be co-learners, co-disciples in this Emmaus faith journey.
