This dangerous few below were some of the participants at our Unusual Soldiers conference last week in Honduras. For the first time in history these four denominations joined hands and endeavored to launch movements in remote areas around Copan, Honduras.
Here is a list of my top five greatest moments...
5. Watching People come alive. Its such a beautiful thing to watch lightbulbs come on. The heart of these people lit up as we tapped into discovering their personal callings. They embraced the Unusual Soldiers training, wanted to get it translated, and some hoped to train their churches as well.
I think that the Lord has a powerful calling for this generous woman. She was so full of light and just happened to be related to a member on our team. I think I smell a disciple-making movement on the horizon!
The next day I went back with another translator and Carlos, a guy who was somewhat new to missions. I encouraged the "newbie" that I wanted him to take the lead and he nervously went for it. Despite his fear, God used him to have a profound impact on this woman and led her to the Lord. It felt so genuine and real. She was actually the only person to respond to the gospel in that entire village. Praise God that we dared to enter.
When our translator and coordinator, Marcia, got up and declared herself, "A Miracle of God," I was nearly brought to tears. She has quite a life story and has been through her fair share of valley's in life. Her story is too long to tell in this post, but with her permission I hope to one day post it on my blog, so you can come to grips with why those words were so POWERFUL and PERFECT for her! God has got his hand on her in a profound way and I believe that God is going to use her to have an incredible impact on the world despite her past!
