So I was thinking....

So I've been thinking...It would be sooo cool to be a missionary to some foreign, third-world 
country. Wouldn't that be absolutely amazing?!?! Maybe one day. Maybe God will call some of us to go there...But, hey! Who said we can't be missionaries right where we are, in the mean time? Being on the mission field doesn't necessarily mean in a different part of the world (although it could be!). Being a missionary could mean simply sharing Jesus with that little kid down the street or giving the cashier a Gospel tract, or even just not compromising and giving in to pressure. Although the others may laugh and think you're weird, that's how you let your light shine. They will see that there is something different about you, and It may even cause them to ask you questions about your faith and Jesus! Just because you're young, don't let that discourage you from serving God, as it says in 1 Timothy  4:12 (Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.)  Pray for opportunities to be used for eternal purposes, and don't let this special stage in your life be wasted--it only comes once! :) :)
