On Saturday we celebrated the ministry of Gary and Wilma Davidson. They are missionaries from Oklahoma who have spent 32 years in Ireland. It was amazing to see the history of the Assemblies of God Ireland, to hear stories of lives changed, and to see the impact a couple from Southeast Oklahoma had on a nation.
I found myself hoping God would allow us to stay in Ireland for 30+ years.
Many people in ministry get caught up with the job, the title, or the good deeds. The greatest influencers on earth are focused on what's most important to God. Their ministries revolve around people.
After 32 years I don't want to be remembered for the systems we built, the amount of good deeds we've done, or the statistics of our ministry.
32 years from now I want to be remembered by the people who's lives were changed because of our obedience to God's will.
