Davis Missionary Journey: Team Building

I've mentioned before how difficult it is to form a new team while living on the field. I've no doubt that my wife's prayers have been heard in this regard. Even while we were on furlough, a family who had worked temporarily with us last year committed to two more years. And in a few months yet another family plans to join bringing our number to 5 families.

God builds the team!

This realization has some profound ramifications. When asked how we can hope to keep a team of such disparate individuals from "coming apart at the seams", the fact of God's "work to assemble it" answers the question. The fact that our prayers have been answered "His way" lets us know "our place". His providential arrangement supersedes personal sensibilities. The success of our work is in direct proportion to our submission to His organization and leadership.

"With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."

Ephesians 4:2-3 KJV

Can this "mission experience" benefit our church plantings? Is not the church God's "team" as well?

Thankful for His providence,

Brian, Sondra, Noah, & Bryson
