I am looking forward to my welcome into the SIM (Serving in Mission) family this week and my wife and I are continuing to ask ourselves – what has God released us to?

One thing for certain is that we are not released to become super missionaries – even though I have claimed a small part of Toronto for myself.

As we are focusing on Muslim ministry, we know He did not release us so that we could become formidable intellectual experts on Islamics.  He definitely did not release us to become fluent Arabists.

He is releasing us as faithful servants sharing the gospel with the followers of Islam – with a special focus on Arabic, Farsi and Turkish speaking people.

We expect things to happen – opportunities and  divine appointments – while we fumble our way through conversations, make cultural blunders, work through illness and before we are even ‘prepared’ for ministry.

Are you waiting until you are ‘prepared’ for ministry before you answer God’s call?  Is He moving in your heart even now as a part of what He is doing among the people of the Middle East and North Africa?  What will it take to move you?  God can use you right where you are, now.  He desires willing servants who are faithful to His call wherever they are.  When He opens the door, will you go through?


About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
