leaving on a jetplane... the airplane tickets to Chiang Mai have been booked. God willing, we'll be there on a journey of faith and trust for 25 days. It's exciting, I know even before I'm there. For the Lord will do great and mighty things that we don't even yet know.

God willing, will He bring alongside like-minded Galileans to serve in His harvest field, to grasp how far and wide the harvest is, and how little the labourers are.

this mission trip like the one to Japan has so many unknowns and honestly, I'm not very adventurous. If given a choice, I would probably remain in Singapore. I've never been to Chiang Mai before, and this would be the smallest group that I'm going to travel the furthest with. But I'm mindful tonight as it was shared during crusade discipleship training, that it is all about obedience and application.
Luke6:46 Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and not do what I tell you? 47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.
Obedience to the will of God, and doing what we have each been called to do - to fulfill that Great Comission.

A man who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock? or one who builts on the ground without a foundation? sober reminder to live the walk and walk the talk, moment by moment.
