On a personal note: February has thrust me through several job interviews (another spectacular one today, please pray for that), my birthday is coming up on the 17th ... 22yrs old ... eek!, also moving to Lino Lakes to be closer to the Cities and so excited to live with my new family - I'm inheriting three little sisters!
My good friend Tyler, a missionary with YWAM, wrote a great post that's worth your reading. Though I differ with him on one point - I believe that the definition of a missionary, as laid out in Matthew, is a "cross-cultural" worker not just an evangelist. But, regardless, Ty is spot on - its all about using the gifts He gave you to spread the Good Message. Seriously. Let me hear an AMEN!
If you're a student of international news, keep an eye on Egypt - Chaos in Cairo as Mubarak backers, opponents clash. Peaceful protests turned violent today when Government supporters and Anti-Mubarak protesters met in Tahrir Square, Cairo. Its an urgent story - happening right now - don't miss out on the lives of our fellow humans just because its unpleasant or inconvenient (speaking from experience). Social media, youth efforts, Internet shut down, decades of rule, instability, and a lot of opportunity to learn and pray. There are many believers working in Egypt and many vulnerable families living in the slums of Cairo.
