As many of you know or should know, Amy and I are heading to Belize as short term missionaries with a dynamic organization, Praying Pelican Missions. We have felt God’s call on us to missions and specifically to missions in Belize for about 3 years and were presented an opportunity. We have pursued and sometime in the year 2012 (either June or September), the entire Edmonds clan (Amy, Madeline, Joseph, and Josh) will be relocating toBelize.
Our plan is to update our blog at least once a week (Monday nights), so you guys, can get the skinny on what’s happening in our lives, how you can pray for us, and how God has been teaching us.
This week I listened to a sermon fromNewSpringChurch(newspring.cc) about loving Jesus with all our soul. The pastor stated “If God answered all your prayers last month, how many people would have been saved?” God’s heart is for the lost to be brought to a reunion with Him and for me to love God with all my soul, it HAS to be my heart too. I have prayed all week about selling our house but NOT about people coming to know him #iwasconvicted.
