You may have thought from the title that this is a blog about gripes concerning young people. Nope. Far from it! Recently, I spent three marvelous weeks on Guam, where they say America’s day begins; probably because the island is fifteen hours ahead of us in places like St. Louis.
Each day, a couple hours after the sun rose, we staggered into a waiting classroom. We covered over seventy sessions equipping young—and not so young—minds for missionary and ministry service.
Each day I looked into the faces of fourteen amazing, anointed, able, apostolic, developing individuals.
Sensed their passion
Saw their vision
Felt their burden
Listened to their devotion
Studied their gifting
Discussed their future
Dreamed of their destiny
Heard their prayers
Applauded their inspiration and perspiration
Touched by their kindness
Impressed by their togetherness
Strengthened by their courage
Motivated by their desires
Humbled by their sacrifice
Stirred by their desires
Awestruck by their possibilities
Enthralled by their sensitivity
They left me…
Three weeks with these world-changers wildly, well, and wisely spent. An amazing investment!
