It was so great to see all of you who made it out to week one of our 2018 Get Up and Go course. It was a great turnout, and I hope you remember the lesson of patience from the puzzles – because we have a few more great activities in store for you over the next few weeks.
Here are the audio files for you for the two sessions from week one. If you missed this week, make sure to listen to the audio before Sunday!
Session One – Jonathan Ferguson – Introduction and the Missionary Call
Session Two – Bill Welsh – The Great Commission
Here is a great sermon (audio and transcript) from John Piper about the life of George Mueller. An amazing man of faith, Mueller opened schools for children and adults to study the Bible, supported missionaries around the world, and opened five orphanages that cared for 10,024 children in his life – all without asking anyone for support.
Another great website to check out is www.askamissionary.com. I have just recently found this website, and only explored a few of the pages, but here is one about knowing if God has called you to be a missionary.
If you are interested in learning more about individual countries of the world, the CIA World Factbook is a great resource to discover facts about geography, government, people groups, demographics and much more.
