When I sat down to interview them for Awaken Magazine, Jeremiah told me, "The great adventure for today, especially for Christians, is being obedient to the Lord completely."
I couldn't agree more.
We talked about the joys of working side-by-side with your spouse, the endlessly-surprising ways God puts people in our path, the power of praying light into a dark nation, and how none of this would be possible if we'd stayed home.
Friends, I'm going to say it again: if God tells you to do something scary—write a book, move to Kosovo, go on a round-the-world journey, help a stranger, whatever—just do it. Go, and don't look back. Go, and keep listening. Because the first step inevitably leads to a second, a third, and then a life-long journey.
Because God is faithful, and one way or another, he'll keep putting ground beneath your feet.
I hope that whatever your calling is, you would look around and see that it is possible.
It's possible to leave everything behind—all security, all familiar—and yet be greatly blessed. Abraham did it. Jesus' disciples did it. And even today, we are invited into that story. Jesus looks us in the eyes and asks each one of us, "Will you follow me?"
I hope that today, and every day, our answer will be yes.
If you want to know more about the Gibson's yes, check out their blog Gibsons Go Global. Later, I'll have a feature on their faith journey in Awaken Magazine, but I'll post a link once that gets published.
Also, if you want to send them to another nation, you can do so here. Because really, how often do we get to send someone to Cambodia? It's wild.
May you walk (and run and skip and fly) with the God who loves you, and in whom you can always trust,
