Servant, Slave, and Soldier

This past weekend,we had the wonderful opportunity of flying up to visit our soon to be home in Diego Suarez, Madagascar. We were reminded a few times on this trip exactly what we have been called to do, and that is DIE, just like the airport code says for Diego. We have been called by God to die to ourselves, to take up our cross and follow Him. We have been called to Diego Suarez to be servants to our Boss, slaves to our Master, and soldiers to our Commander. It is not enough to be one or the other, we are called to be all three. While we were there, we got to see the town and some of the surrounding countryside, as well as the magnificent Indian Ocean. The contrast here is very stark, this is most likely the most unreached and spiritually darkest part of the island, with over one million lost souls here and around 60% of them professing Islam and yet when you drive around you realize that this is one of the most beautiful, breathtaking places in the world. We have been blessed to have been placed here with Michael and Michelle Allen and can't wait to see how God will use our team to impact the Malagasy people of Northern Madagascar for His kingdom. It is our prayer that our team will be salt and light to these people, that God would be glorified by everything that we say and do, and that we will never forget that we have been called to be servants, slaves, and soldiers for Him. Will you pray with us? Thank you and God bless.
