What is it like to be commissioned?

What is it like to be commissioned by your church for overseas service?  That entirely depends on how deeply you've invested in them and they in you.  It entirely depends on if God has given you those moments where you get to stick together through thick and through thin.  It entirely depends on if you have been fiercely loved and fervently prayed over by a few special ones sitting in those pews.  It entirely depends on if you look out in that sea of faces and could shed tears over the specific sacrifices that you know THEY are making to send you overseas.  It entirely depends on if you have the body of Christ like we have at Grace Fellowship Church.

Sunday July 14, 2013 our body of Christ commissioned us for service overseas.  What a powerful day it was.  I can't quite muster up the words to describe what it meant to us.  Powerful message, powerful emotions, and powerful bonds of love that have been established over time.  We love this family.

"The harvest is PLENTIFUL, but the laborers are few; THEREFOR PRAY EARNESTLY to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Mat 9:37). But when you do, know that the Lord might just see your hand raised.  -Pastor Rob Borkowitz

These little VBS friends raised money for our vehicle fund!  Such an honor to receive!

The Double Meyer Hug :)  This whole family means so much to us.
