The Joy of Mobilizing for the Kingdom!

Ray Call

This past Thursday my BEAMM teammate, Ray Call, and I went to Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California to meet with students. We had a wonderful opportunity to share about what our vision is for reaching out to Hispanics on the border. We provided pizza for lunch, which is definitely a draw to hungry seminarians.
We had a great time! I love to share the stories about how the Lord has led us to the border, and how He is already working and changing lives on the border. I get energized by the youth and enthusiasm of a younger crowd.
I find that it gives me great joy sharing about what we do, and the vision the Lord has given us for the bi-national city of San Diego – Tijuana border. It encourages my soul when new friends respond to what God is doing. I always enjoy sharing how God is working and how He’s called us. Usually I am doing it to raise funds for our ministry. It is a nice change to be able to share these same things to encourage and motivate people to serve with us.
I don’t know what God will do. I don’t know who He will call to join us, but I do know that Jesus told us to pray for workers. My wife likes to tell of a plaque her parents had that said, “pray, but row to shore.” I think that applies here. We pray for workers, but we also ask people to join us.

Just in the last few weeks we’ve had one new intern, Emily Gryder decide to work with us from July to November. We also have an awesome young lady from Birmingham, Alabama that is beginning the process to come on with Mission to the World, and to join our team. Pray with us as she goes through this process that God will make His calling even more clear to her. The Lord is raising up workers. Praise Him!
Back to our experience at Westminster seminary. I was so encouraged to see how well Ray and I worked together, as we shared our stories. I love working on a team. Thank you, Jesus for raising up workers and building our team. It reminds me that He is ultimately the One that causes the increase.
In His Grip, Dave

    Dave, Thanks for liking my blog-excited to see what you are doing with MTW. Who is joining you from B’ham? That is my hometown. Is this person out of Briarwood Presbyterian?

      yes, my friend is from Briarwood Pres. We are praying that it all works out as they begin the process. Are you working on a college campus for your ministry? I pray the Lord blesses your ministry.
      Thanks, Dave

        Thanks Dave-actually I am part of launching a new effort with Cru-to go after the Mosaic generation in the cities of the US. It will be a highly partnering effort with churches and other mission agencies. We will launch this next fall in Dallas, Austin, New York, Portland, Boston and Raleigh. Really fun, really chaotic, and steep learning curve. Blessings
