“We, who have accepted Jesus as Lord, are all missionaries! Each of us may not be living abroad or leading mission trips as a career, but the truth is, everyone can be a missionary. This blog series will span across multiple blogs from our PPM Mission Coordinators and Advocates and will serve to showcase people who are living daily with a missional mindset. We will be giving a voice to a barista, who shares the love of Christ through espresso shots each morning. We will be the platform for a tired mom next door to share how she impacts her child’s friends when they come over for a sleepover. We will be the helping hand to a Pastor who wants to encourage his congregation to get involved. The school teacher who invests in his students and wants to see them succeed and know Christ. The janitor who humbly and lovingly listens to his co-workers as they vent and confess their sins to him. We pray these stories will encourage and challenge us all to live our lives as missionaries everyday, in our own unique mission fields!”

It’s now Christmas time. 2013 is almost over and 2014 is about to begin. It’s the perfect time of year to look back and celebrate all that God has done for you while simultaneously celebrating the reason we are shown so much of his mercy and grace: Jesus Christ. This past Sunday, a song was sung in church that perfectly emulates all that we should be doing this holiday season…”and I celebrate the day that you were born to die so I could one day pray for you to save my life.” The reason we celebrate this holiday season is the same reason I can look back on 2013 and smile. I can blink and not be afraid. Thank you God for your amazing gift.
