The Importance of a Strong Team
I must admit that I’m a big baseball fan, and although my team wasn’t in the World Series this year it’s still fun to catch some of the games.
Much of what I’m doing, and my wife and I are doing together has to do with team. We are building a strong team of people to stand with us in prayer and financially. We are also praying, and making people aware of what is going on in missions in the bi-national city of San Diego – Tijuana, so that others might join us in the work.
The Journey to Build a Team
I’m at the front end of a long trip on the east coast. Presently, I’m in the Baltimore – DC area meeting with friends and churches to let them know all that the Lord is doing on the border. Then on Sunday I’ll drive up to the Philadelphia area to evaluate some missionary candidates.
From there I fly to Atlanta to meet my wife, Dawn. We will drive to Greenville, South Carolina for Mission to the World’s big conference, called Global Missions Conference. We will end the trip at Covenant College to meet students and share with them about our ministry on the border.
Our hope is that the Lord will raise up people to stand alongside us to support this ministry as well as serve alongside us in the ministry.
Baseball and a Team Mentality
I guess you could say, we need a team of people for anything to happen. That’s what made me think about the World Series. The World Series just ended, and it takes a great team to win it all.
This year the Boston Red Sox took home the crown. The Cardinals lost to the Red Sox in 6 games. Both teams are very talented, and they work together well. The teams that make it to the World Series tend to have a team first mentality.
There is a great article that I recently came across called the Cardinal way that highlights the importance of being selfless and putting the team first. You can read the article here…
Thanks for Being Part of Our Team
I appreciate you for reading our blog, following the ministry and for praying for us. We could not do it without a strong team of the Lord’s saints. Friends that have chosen to join us on this journey of faith.
As Paul said,
Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as beating the air. (1 Corinthians 9:25,26 ESV)
