Have you ever been on an international mission trip? If not have you wanted to, but something is holding you back?
Well if you have not because something is holding you back then you and I have – or had something in common.
There was a time in my life when I wanted to, but would not go on an international mission trip because of my stomach. Spicy foods and weird things set my stomach in a rage at the most un-convenient times. I finally let go and let God … and the results were amazing.
In 2011 a team from Graveston Baptist Church left one July morning headed to Guatemala on a mission trip through Clubhouse Guatemala. I was nervous and excited all at the same time. I wanted to be obedient, but just was not sure of the outcome. I finally realized I was being led by faith!
I recorded some of the details and lessons I learned from that mission trip in my first eBook. It is a short read with some fun relevant pictures, and I would be honored if you would download a copy to read. It is indeed free – all I ask is to register with your email.
You can download the book right now by clicking on Elder!
I would would also like to hear what you think about the book and my experiences.
I was fortunate to be asked to participate as a contributing author of a new Bible devotional book called All Time Verses: 90-Day Scripture Journey by the student ministers at First Baptist Woodstock. I submitted two devotions for the project.
Since this is the first time I have been included in a book publication I wanted to celebrate by giving a copy away to one my blog readers. So I thought I would have a little contest.
I will select one person to receive a free book who #1_will read the devotion and #2_tells me the most unique place they will read this devotion. (yes – points added for creativity)
Simply fill out the information below to be considered. You do not have to be a follower of my blog, but will be entered by submitting the form from this page. Only one entry per person. I will not give or sale your information to anyone – just using it as a reference.
Contest begins NOW and will end at noon on Sunday, February 16th. You must be a valid reader of the English language and the declared winner will need to provide a physical mailing address upon request.
Terri Brooks is the winner of the free book contest! Terri said she would read the devotion the first thing in the morning in her sun room.
