Of the many experiences we exchanged, one of her pearls of wisdom stood out strongly for me.
Chelsia mentioned that God uses the first term of any missionary’s work to reveal how sinful and small-minded s/he is. That way, the missionary doesn’t stand in the way of His work.
I’ve only completed two brief mission exposures, and I can concur entirely. Personally, I cannot imagine spending years experiencing the depth of personal depravity. 😱
But surely, it is as the Lord leads.
“Short termers”, she calls us. God, it’s up to You! I’m listening.
