I'm fast approaching the 100 day mark. My drive is in high gear and it's no holding back! I have been running so fast, accomplishing so much, I've been so busy... I had to stop today and remind myself what this is all about.
It's about people; people that will one day step out into eternity! My going on this mission is about THAT! With God's help, some of those people will be willing to hear the Gospel and come to Christ... then their eternity will be altered and by God's grace, most welcomed. This mission is about the lost! It's about preaching the simple first century Gospel to people that might never hear it otherwise.
Jesus came to seek and save the lost. That's exactly what He said in Luke 19:10, "For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." He left His glory, grandeur, and His lofty abode in heaven and became a man.
"For let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians 2:5-8
I'll remind you, that at the end of Jesus' mission trip to earth, there stood a cross! It wasn't like our mission trips that could or may lead to danger, difficulty, and maybe even death. His mission trip would absolutely and definitely find its end in pain, suffering, and death... and not just any death, the horrible death of the cross... BUT HE CAME ANYWAY KNOWING THAT END!
THE LOST... THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT!
With that said, here's what's been going on... (lots of work being accomplished).
You can now reach this website by using either of two domain names: www.sailorsmission.com or www.missionsaintlucia.com. The addition of the second domain comes from the name I have dubbed on this effort... MISSION SAINT LUCIA. I thought it might be easier for people to remember.
Business cards and brochures are completed...
The brochure is available here or simply click on the icon below to open the brochure.
I've also prepared a display table complete with brochures, business cards, pictures, and a Powerpoint presentation to quickly familiarize people with Mission Saint Lucia. I have included a video of that Powerpoint presentation in this post. The music is there because I have yet to add the narration... that will be forthcoming and I will post it on this site when it is completed.
I will be preaching at Capital City Christian Church in Tallahassee, Florida on February 26th. That church will be considering Mission Saint Lucia as one of the missions they support. If you are in the area, I would love to see you there. The address for Capital City Christian Church is 6115 Mahan Dr, Tallahassee, FL 32308. Worship services start at 10:15 AM. Come on out... I won't preach long.
Here's the presentation. Let me know what you think.
