[Risks No. 294 - 307] I have come to find that one of the harder things to do is trying to keep tabs on risks while I'm on mission trips. So much is happening daily (both in the internal context of ministry to people who have come to receive it) and to those who we meet "randomly" along the way. The Jesus journey isn't an on or off missions-trip ideal. By grace, and with the help of this personal risk challenge, I'm learning to view everyday as mission. It is substantially easier to be full of faith when traveling with a team of like-minded risk-takers than when I'm alone at the grocery store, gas station, etc. If anything, I realized while in Colombia how much God has been growing my hope and expectation for living out the Kingdom and helping others do the same. Our time in Colombia was ridiculous. In a good way. So much fruit! Countless men and women came to Jesus for the first time or brought their hearts back to Him. We experienced the gifts and fruit of the Spirit in special ways everywhere we went. For the sake of this blog, I am only going to include short recaps from those stories that involved a risk. I pray you are encouraged!
