WE SPEAK TO THE NATIONS

WELCOME TO MISSION 4 MONDAY
Yes, this is the right place to share the MISSION in your  heart, life & mind!



THIS SERIES OF SONGS "WE SPEAK TO THE NATIONS" HAS A PLAYLIST of 12 parts!

MY NEW DISCOVERY:

When you get to the end of YouTube videos ~ this one in particular, there are little videos at the bottom with related songs and each one you can click on and hear that song...see that video. 

In this case, these are 12 beautiful songs from Lakewood Live Church with Cindy Cruse Ratcliff, Israel Houghton, and the whole worship team. I do not get the privilege to enjoy WORSHIP in English here with all the contemporary music but thanks to internet, I am being blessed. So though this is from years ago(I think)...it is new to me and the message of these songs need to get down in our hearts & our spirit and know that RIGHT where you are, you can SHARE JESUS! GOD IS SPEAKING STILL TO THE NATIONS! This doesn't mean you need to GO but

WE HAVE AN ASSIGNMENT!

Right where we are!

Here is the list of songs and the time each one takes, come back and see each one whenever you need to HEAR God speak!!! Trust me these songs are anointed! Choose one today & let me know which one blesses you...

MY MISSION FOR THIS WEEK is to continue daily to try & lead others to JESUS or knowing that 

WE ARE MADE FOR A MISSION

I have read so many blogs that have a MISSION, have a CAUSE, have a PURPOSE to share
JESUS! But few come here and share their mission with others. Since I'm in a foreign country, you may think I believe that MISSION is BEING CALLED as a missionary, going on short term mission trips (which many are available) but my whole intent of this BLOG is to tell you that YOU have a MISSION right there where you are! Many have shared great links to their missions here and each one is truly valuable to the Kingdom of God! 

I want to highlight a special blogger many of you already know & love! Her name is Denise over at SHORTYBEAR'S PLACE!

Each week without fail...Denise shares FANTASTIC ideas that you each could do as well.
Let me go through the ones that DENISE has shared:











And the list goes on....because Denise posts on other days her heart for many that I consider her daily mission. She is a treasure and a true example of reaching beyond herself, her own health problems, her own financial circumstances and GIVES as God leads her, SHARES as God moves her ... and BLESSES many just by reaching within herself to change others for JESUS'. She is a true missionary ... right where she lives ... right from her physical confinement due to her own declining health, she is rising above and showing others how to be Jesus to anyone & everyone,
regardless ... of what our natural eyes see ... Denise sees with beautiful spiritual eyes that SHINE
the LIGHT of JESUS in the darkness of other's lives ... from where she or each of us came to HIS GLORY & FOR HIS KINGDOM! 

Now this should empower YOU & inspire YOU that YOU too have a MISSION. May GOD show YOU one for this week but even as Beth shared in Super Sunday here...

"Think of one person--just one. Then ask that person to attend church with you, share your hope in Jesus, reach out and touch someone today with the Love of Our Lord! I've got to tell SOMEBODY!!"

AND SO DO YOU
JUST DO IT!
YOU ARE MADE FOR A MISSION!

I did have other "missions" that have been called to my attention to share but there are many more days and MONDAYS to share...this is what God told me to share this day! My mission will continue whether I share it or not but by sharing and making others AWARE, hopefully draws YOU into a new motivation for SHARING JESUS & LIVING for JESUS!

May my encouragement to you stir your spirit & confirm that you, too, have an urgent call from Jesus! Many are despairing & perishing right within our midst, please throw them a line to SAFETY, HOPE & ETERNITY! You have the keys, why not share?  Invite others here.

GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD

WELCOME TO MISSION 4 MONDAY

YOU WERE MADE FOR A MISSION

 Each of us have a mission & a mission field
right where we are
just as we are
God will use us
if we make ourselves available
the Holy Spirit will guide us
 work through us & flow to others
if we let Him & obey Him

If in doubt and you need more confirmation



God's Word is very clear on this!
Here's how HE speaks to me:

18Then Jesus came to them and said,
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." 
Matthew 28: 18-20

"Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation."

Mark 16:15

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.

Matthew 5:13

Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life, gives 5 purposes and the 5th one is


YOU WERE MADE FOR A MISSION

4th Purpose
YOU WERE SHAPED FOR SERVING GOD

3rd Purpose
YOU were created to become like Christ

2nd Purpose
YOU were formed for God's family

1st Purpose
YOU were planned for God's PURPOSE

Some are called to GO, some of us are called to STAY but all of us are called to FOLLOW

JESUS

Hear HIS Voice

What has He placed on your heart? 

HEAR the MESSAGE

Speak your LIFE MESSAGE to others

Now is the time to connect
to give Truth & Life of Jesus
to ALL creation

 Just DO it!

GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD

Operation Christmas

Continuation of the photos from 
FESTINIÑOS 
Operation Christmas

From another Children's Feeding Center 
in another colony in Mazatlan, Mexico...G. Estrada...on the edge of town











These are the "helpers" from Amistad Familiar.






PRAY FOR THESE CHILDREN WHO WERE GIVEN the "shoeboxes" from Operation Christmas but more importantly the GIFT and choice to know Jesus Christ, who keeps on giving and for the seeds that were planted will draw these children back to the Children's Feeding Center daily to be fed from the Word of God!

MISSION 4 MONDAY

Perhaps I have not made this very clear ... but  
"WE ALL WERE MADE FOR A MISSION"!
This does not mean we each must go to another land from where we live to become a missionary.

Right where you are, right where you live, there is a "mission" to be accomplished.

You do not have to write and share here about short term mission trips only-though they are certainly welcome or life as a missionary-though that is truly a call of missions or even your heart for missions and longings to "GO"-which certainly may happen God willing to link to this post and share. As a matter of fact, it does not even need to be posted on Monday... it can be one you've posted on another day. In fact, you being a Christian blogging...is a MISSION. You have a PURPOSE. Or better said GOD HAS A PURPOSE for YOU! Please share it with us...

WELCOME TO ALL PARTICIPANTS and READERS to MISSION 4 MONDAY!
My Mission 4 Monday post is below the Mr. Linky before the Father Letter Videos.
#6 is the wrong post for Marsha...it's #7, I linked her but so does Michele link her.
I also added Michele again with an excellent BIBLE STUDY she has started, which is a mission, too! Please join her & check it out #10!




AS FOR ME & MY "MISSION" WE WILL SERVE THE LORD

Just sharing more photos from another Children's Feeding Center
from OPERATION CHRISTMAS
and 
THANKING ALL OF YOU WHO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE
BY MAKING A "SHOEBOX" and GIVING


CASA REDONDA


The video is Pastor Carlos leading the children in prayer to accept Jesus in their heart. 

I'm sitting with the kids on the floor. This is from V.CARRANZA Children's Feeding Center of the children that I shared their photos last time. The following photos are from CASA REDONDA!

The CASA REDONDA Children's Feeding Center is lead by Enrique & his wife, Gema. This is their whole family on a motorcycle...a while back...they were given a van since for their ministry.
Daily Gema makes breakfast for all these kids and Enrique blesses them with a BIBLE lesson.


This is their oldest beautiful daughter!
I was sitting on the floor next to her taking turns holding these little ones crying.





I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF CHRISTMAS and DAY OF THE 3 KINGS!

I will be continuing to share the photos from this beautiful time with each group of children.
Someday, I hope to be able to open my home as a Children's Feeding Center.
I do not have the skills to prepare food for this many children nor the right kitchen stuff.
But I do have the heart!

Meanwhile I just enjoy watching the leaders here take charge and teach & feed these precious
children their DAILY MANNA as I assist as able. It's a better role for me anyways and I enjoy so much observing and helping as a servant. The teacher in me wants to rise up but this is their time to become all God intends them to be. I've done this for all my life back home and this blesses me so much to see God anoint these leaders and children with His Spirit.

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
